This is a family favorite that new family members have hesitated trying and came to LOVE! Just three simple ingredients. You can use fat free cream cheese for a yummy fat free dessert.

This is a family favorite of ours as well, from the 1950's. We make it every Christmas and Easter for the cool freshness and pretty green color. We add 1 cup of chopped walnuts.
