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.

My friend makes this for all our pot luck dinners but she uses pineapple chunks and adds chopped pecans and mini marshmallows. Yum!

Made this without pineapple with raspberry jello and FRESH raspberries in season. To die for. But edit this recipe. I am a lil slow perhaps, but I actually Googled "boxany" to find out what kinda flavor it was! :) lol

This was so delicious! I wasn't sure if I would even like it, as I had never made anything with cottage cheese before. I was pleasantly surprised though! I used sugar free raspberry jello and added maraschino cherries into mine. It ended up looking really pretty!

Love, love, love this recipe! It is so simple! And you change it up in un-numbered ways to suit your flavor preference. I have made this many times, and followed the tip in the reviews to blend the jello with the cool whip first. YUM YUM!
