Healthy Mandarin Orange Dessert

READY IN: 3hrs 15mins
Recipe by 2bizzy

Except for the light whipped topping and the juice from the pineapple, this is almost sugar free. I got this from a Weight Watchers recipe swap. My kids inhale this stuff when I make it which is fine with me since they're getting some fruit and dairy in every serving, but they just think it's a sweet treat! (WW Points per serving = 1)

I was looking for an easy light dessert, but I didn't use sugar-free items. I used regular frozen whipped topping (thawed), and greek yogurt because I would've had to purchase a large tub of plain yogurt. I had a few regular boxes of gelatin mixes on hand - but not orange flavored, so I chose strawberry-banana...thinking altogether I'd have something close to a banana split experience. Wrong! It was more like a strawberry pineapple greek yogurt experience w/o even a hint of banana! While satisfying my dessert fix...I think next time I would like to try this recipe as written. I have to give it 4 stars for now. Great idea, tho'. thx for sharing.
