We love, love, love this recipe. We do add a large can of mandarin oranges diced up to this, we drain the oranges then dice and throw right in the mix. We have made a cherry version with cherry jello and sweet cherries, and strawberry mix.... they both rock too. You can do raspberry too but I havent made that yet.
I've really struggled with how to rate this. I think it's the texture that made the final decision for me. At first it sort of tasted like that pineapple cottege cheese you can buy in the grocery store and that was fine with me as I love the stuff. No one else in the family would touch the stuff but that's because they don't like sweet cottage cheese so they don't count. Trouble was that as I continued to try it I found the jello to really be almost overly sweet and even though I tried mixing more - still kind of a fine grit to it, and the more I tried the less I liked the texture. I think if I do it again, I'd cut the amount of the jello in half and see if that would help. That said it was pretty, lite and in small amounts enjoyable. I could see it made with strawberry jello too. Thanks Marsha for posting.
This recipe is so good. 43 yesrs ago MY mother in law woulld make this, put in a cold thermos and take it to school for her lunch. I thought it was delicious but could never get my family to eat it. They didn't like the texture.
This one didn't do it for me and hubby. I didn't like the texture. Sorry.
This is so good, that I almost ate the whole thing myself. :) But I had help from my family. This is super easy to prepare, and it is low cal, light and yummy. I can see this getting made a lot, with different flavors, I used cherry this time. Thank you Marsha for posting.
Oh yum yum yum! You know what this tastes like? Orange sherbet! I made this with sugar free jello and cool whip free and it turned out very nice. Thank you for sharing Marsha D.
My grandmother used to make this very stuff, and we loved it as kids. So glad to now have the recipe to make for myself. I used Lime sugar free jelly and it worked great.
Roxanne's a good person, and I am glad you are sharing this receipe with everyone because it is so good it would be a sin to keep it a secret,lol.
I haven't made this yet..but have eaten it several times at different potlucks in the area...LOVE it!! Can't wait...going to put it on the menu tomorrow using the orange jello...yummy Katie
Delicious. Cannot wait to try it with other fruits and fruit combos. Thanks!
