A huge favourite at our house, using other flavours of jello as well. I make it without the crust, and sometimes add some co-ordinating pieces of fresh fruit (raspberries with raspberry jello, etc.) This is such a satisfying dessert for so few calores.
I've used this recipe for many years with great success. My friends and family especially like it using orange gelatin & yogurt... it tastes like a creansicle! But I usually make it without the pie crust and serve it as "mousse" in small glass dishes or a large crystal bowl (double thr recipe) topped with additional whipped topping - and using fat free and/or sugar free whipped topping, it's only 1 point.
Great dessert (even if you aren't on Weight Watchers). I served this to company and it was a hit. It was nice having a lighter dessert after our meal. Instead of making a pie I put the filling into parfait glasses, topped with a few graham cracker crumbs and served it ... we didn't miss the pie at all. I'll be experimenting with other flavors ... orange, lemon ... the possibilities are endless!!!
Light & delicious & look forward to to changing it around with different Jello/yogurt. If anyone else has difficulty figuring out the 1/16ounce jello as I did it works with 0.3oz (8.5g). i had a box of lime jello that is 3oz and had to figure out the proper weight for the jello which again is 0.3oz(8.5g) and it worked just fine.
This is very yummy and easy. I don't "do piecrusts" so I made it like a mousse pudding. I used 1/2 cup hot water and 3 containers of yogurt to make it less stiff. The fun is in choosing and mixing different flavors of jello with yogurts. Lemon jello mixed with pineapple/mango/passion fruit yogurt has a tropical flavor. Lemon and lemon tastes like lemon chiffon pie. Cherry and cherry is especially good. Using a better quality yogurt makes a difference. I keep a container in the frig for light snacking or dessert. It goes fast and no guilt. Thanks for the inspiration.
I have made this recipe before. My whole family loves it. I always make whatever dessert they want for their birthday and this has been chosen more than once. I love using orange jello and vanilla yogurt, tastes just like a dreamcicle. I sometimes just make it in a bowl and dip graham crackers or vanilla wafers in it. VERY GOOD!
Yummy! Made this with sugar free lime jello, sf cool whip and dannons light & fit key lime pie yogurt! I just crumbled some graham crackers and sprinkled them on top before serving. Tasty treat guiltfree sensation!!
this was wonderful......Even the people that did not know they were eating weight watchers loved it...
I have made this several times. The lime version is great, but I also used raspberry jello with chocolate yogurt in a chocolate crust (so it is worth more points), orange jello and orange creamcycle yogurt, and my favorite, wil strawberry jello with strawberry banana yogiurt. This recipe is a whole lot of fun!
There is something wrong with the measurement of gelatin & hot water. It's gotta be more of one or the other. To fill a pie crust I would double the filling.
