This I developed for my mother to satisfy her sweet tooth but not upset her diabetes. You can make it in one large bowl or as individual serves in parfait glasses and if you want to be a little decadent you could add grande marnier (or other orange flavoured liqueur) to the ricotta cream instead of the reserved juice. You could also try other combinations of fruit and jelly. Have not included setting/refrigerator time. The jelly packet I use (Australian) requires 500ml (2 cups) of liquid to make. Jelly in Australia is a geletine based product I believe similar to the American Jello (you may want to check how much liquid you need to set yours and adjust accordingly, the packet I use needs 500ml (2 cups) for a 9 gram sachet)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • First Layer

  • 9 g sugar-free jelly (Jello, peach and apricot flavour is what I use)
  • 410 g peaches in juice (natural not nectar)
  • 250 g yoghurt (natural or diet)
  • hot water
  • Top Layer

  • 250 g low-fat ricotta cheese (or thickened or whipped cream)


  1. Strain peaches and reserved juice (remove 4 tablespoons of the juice and reserve separately for the ricotta cream).
  2. Put peaches into serving bowl or individual glasses or bowls.
  3. Measure reserved juice, if you have 100ml then dissolve jelly in 150ml hot water, mix together.
  4. Whisk jelly/juice mixture into the yoghurt.
  5. Pour over the fruit.
  6. Refrigerate to set.
  7. Process the 4 tablespoons of reserved juice with the ricotta in a blender, food processor or mixer on high until smooth - use this to decorate the top of fruit/jelly. Either dollop on or pipe onto the dessert.

Lovely diet recipe! I used canned peaches and sugar free peach jello. Next time I'll try blending the peaches into the yoghurt then adding the jello to make a smooth fruity dessert! Thanks I'm Pat!

This is a very nice creamy peachy jello! I used a 6oz package of sugar-free peach jello, 2 cans of Splenda sweetened peaches, 16oz of Activia fat free peach yogurt, 1 cup of juice from the peaches and 2 cups of hot water. I let my dissolved gelatin cool off before mixing it. It turns out like a peachy pudding. I skipped the topping. Made for 1-2-3 hit wonders.

Loved it! Jello isn't readily available here so I raided my gift supply stash from fellow Zaarite Toni Gifford and chose the pineapple flavour becuase it was the only pale or yellowish coloured falvour and I thought that it would look better than the lime/strawberry etc ones. Good choice, it went quite well I thought. I used whipped cream instead of ricotta for the top layer,as stated as an option and didn't whip the extra juice in, rather after the photo was taken I poured the reserved juice carefully around the set dessert and it was really tasty to eat them together. I used greek yogurt mixed with the jello and the tartness of the yogurt really cuts the sweet flavour of the jello. Please see my rating system: 4 excellent stars for a lovely dessert that was enjoyed very much, and since I only have mostly red/green coloured flavours left in my stash now I think I will experiment with strawberries or raspberries as the fruit next time and see where that leads. Thanks!
