Low-Fat Strawberry Parfait

READY IN: 21mins
Recipe by BeachGirl

This is a light, refreshing dessert that is almost fat-free! This can be made with other flavors of gelatine and complementary fresh fruits, such as raspberry, melons, peach, kiwi, blueberries, banana, etc. Chilling in refrigerator is not counted in preparation time.

Mmmmm such a pretty dessert!! I made the whole recipe, so we will enjoy it again tonight. I used "light" jello and splenda in place of equal. Not quite sure what you ment by #15 and #16, but it didn't matter, it's a lovely dessert. Thanks for sharing.
