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.

I make a recipe similar to this -- the same except I don't add pineapple at all. I use the sugar free jello and think it tastes great. So easy and great for a quick kid dessert.

I made this with lowfat cottage cheese, Lite whipped topping and sugar free strawberry / banana jello power. It was good but next time I think I'll try jello powder with sugar and see if it improves the taste.

I made this for a family gathering last night, Used Orange jello & fat free cool whipped topping. It was colorful & tasted great, with one exception -too sweet for my taste. I will try just half box of jello next time. It was a big hit, thanks for posting

I grew up with my grama making this on holidays. The difference is she used a whole tub of Cool Whip, a 14 oz. can of crushed pineapple, and usually only about half a package of dry Lime Jello mix ( now I make it with Cherry), along with a whole large tub of small curd Cottage Cheese. I use both large and small curd but the size of the curd makes all the difference to some. This is one recipe that is considered a family treat. LOVE it and my kids love it. I make this every holiday or special occasion (they always ask for it) as a remembrance of my grama.
