    Marg (CaymanDesigns)'s Note:

    I could eat the whole bowl by myself! This is a great recipe for those who don't like Jell-O since you use it dry and it gives a totally different texture than traditional Jell-O salads. Hint: if you use orange flavored Jell-O use mandarin oranges instead of pineapple.

      This is a recipe I used to make while attending a diet group. I used lowfat cottage cheese, diet Jello and Lite Cool Whip. I would recommend mixing the diet jello with the cool whip first to get it all dissolved before adding other ingredients. Very filling and curbs a sweet tooth too.

      My kids don't like the 'lumps' in cottage cheese. I've been making this dessert as a high-protein sweet-treat for years, but my version takes a little longer. I do dissolve the jello in the recommended amount of hot water but I don't add any cold water. I puree the cottage cheese in my food processor until it's smooth. I use low-fat cottage cheese, sugar-free jello and I add a little bit of splenda to sweeten-up the cottage cheese. I even get by without adding the whipped topping if I'm out - it's a little bit 'denser' - slightly more jello-y - it is fun to pour this into graham cracker crusts as a 'creamed pie', too, if you want to dress it up. Lots of ways to combine this, lots of flavours - we like lime with pear chunks - you can't screw this up and it's cheap and nutritious! :) Thanks for posting!

      My favorite combo of this recipe is to use orange gelatin and mandaring oranges instead of pineapple. YUM. Great recipe - thanks for sharing.
