I made this for my son's graduation party. he likes one like it that has cranberries in it but no cranberries to be found in May. I used sugar free Jell and sugar free vanilla pudding, which does not make this a low cal dessert but cuts downt he calories where we can. Very tasty and spring-like. Pretty to see. Enjoyed by all ages.
