MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 25, 2016

"Delicious and easy to prepare. This is a keeper exactly as written. Definitely a 5* recipe. Ignore the rating by Selkat as there were so many changes to this recipe that she or he created their own recipe and reviewed it, not the original."

"I started by replacing the sour cream with light sour cream and using 1/2 C stevia in the Raw C for C.For the topping I used lite Cool Whip and used the orange peal and fruit just as you did. I haven't figured the calories saved, fat saved or sugar saved, but I know I took out all the guilt!"

"Delicious and easy to make. I made it 3 different times, one being Easter dessert. It was a big hit and I have requests to make it again. I heated it on the stove vs the microwave though. Great recipe!"
