    SilentCricket's Note:

    I remember being able to buy this type of dessert mix in the supermarket years ago. I don't know if it's still available, but if not, you can now make it from scratch! It is not vegan cause gelatin is not vegan!

      This was a blast from the past! It has been years since I had this. Thanks so much for posting it. Follow the directions as written and you can't miss. I did substitute fresh sweetened whipped cream for the non-dairy whipped topping.

      Awesome recipe! Made it with strawberry daiquiri jello mix and dream whip. Also just whipped it by hand and it turned out wonderful for a light summertime dessert!!

      Definitely a blast form the past! I actually had better luck with it separating into it's individual layers when I whipped it by hand. I very well could have blended it toooo long with the blender and whipped the layers right out of it *LOL* Hard to get a photo of it , but that was the best one I could come up with! Glad this recipe was posted!! I have a "new" old dessert! :)
