When I was in high school, my best friend's mom used to make this light berry dessert...and I fell in love with it! Now I fix it for my family on special occasions. Yogurt gives it a deliciously tangy taste. -Deb Sandoval, Colorado Springs, Colorado

"I love this dessert! I am allergic to dairy so i used whipped coconut milk solids (from 1 can chilled coconut milk) instead of the whipped topping, omitted the yogurt and added a 1/2 cup of soy sour cream. I used all raspberry gelatin instead of strawberry and raspberry and replaced the strawberries with raspberries as well. It turned out fabulously!"

"Delightful dessert! There are a lot of options open to you with different jello combinations. This was also great because my son was able to help assemble these desserts which he thoroughly enjoyed."

"This recipe is great !!! It allows for so many flavor options. I used lite cherry yogurt with cherry jello. I had no frozen whipped topping, so whipped up some heavy cream. It came out beautifully. Thanks for posting ! Lakewood, Colorado"

"Very nice recipe. I used mashed frozen strawberries that I had in my freezer and added them frozen, with the cold water. I cut the cold water to only 2/3 cup. It was perfect."
