All I had on hand was the regular jello and cool whip. So I made it with those. YUMMY!!!! But I will make it with the low cal ingredients next time. I don't think it will be any less delicious!So why eat extra calories? I used raspberry flavor. This is SO good!! Thanks SaraFish for a great recipe! This goes into my favorite file! :-)
I make one very similiar to this and my family loves it. I do not make the jello, just pour the powder into the cool whip and add 8 oz. of fat free yogart. You can get very creative with this. I have tried the white chocolate raspberry yogart with the rapsberry jello and used the chocolate crust intead. I added fresh raspberries on top. It was delicious.

I used orange jello and it was pretty good. I made a few recipe alterations along the way. Instead of a cup of water with ice, I used only a half a cup of cold water. I used only 3/4 of the Cool Whip container. Doing that it was the perfect amount to fit in the crust. I skipped step six completely. I did use the plastic cover that came with the crust as suggested by Nado2003. When I cut into it I discovered it had created a small solid jello layer on the bottom with a good inch of orange fluff on top of it. The crust wasn't soggy at all and it was quite tasty. I am looking forward to trying more flavors, especially Lemon and Lime. I cut it for 6 servings and it was 4 WW points a slice which was perfect for me. Thanks!
This is a great way to settle that sweet tooth without feeling to guilty. The only difference is I used an oreo cookie crust instead of a reduced fat cracker crust as I have not been able to find a reduced fat crust that does not contain trans fats. If I had my choice between a few more calories or trans fats I will choose the few more calories. I have made this several times and will most definetely make it again.
