Well, it didn't taste like coconut to me but it sure tasted good. Went into the "Keeper" file. Thanks for sharing. GG

We LOVED this recipe! I've made it twice and plan to make it more. I used non-fat sour cream and put it in a Jello mold. It sets up very firm and reminded me of panna cotta, which I love! I made Mixed Berry Sauce to top and it' vibrant color was really set off by the creamy white. Thanks for another great recipe, Dojemi! Roxygirl

Another one for the soft & mooshy food Hall of Fame! I made this with 2% milk & 1/2 cup of Splenda instead of sugar. It set up just abit firmer than the sugar-free cherry jello I used as a base. Similar to panna cotta with a tasty additional richness from the sour cream ( refreshing & nice change from cloying Cool Whip & unctous whipped cream). Delicious & a much appreciated change to have with the jello which is a large part of my eating experience right now. Thank you, dojemi, for this yum recipe I will use even after my mouth heals up!
