"I made yesterday with sugar-free cherry jello and tonic water as substitutes... I love my microwave BUT to really get the jello to melt and everything else to blend well together & prevent separating ... try boiling the water and then adding that to the jello to dissolve! Then mix rest together ... Everything blended together without separating with the exception of the top which was "frothy" because of adding the additional liquid at the end which I did before pouring into container. This way also eliminates messing up a blender...."

"Husband and kiddo love this!! We had the same separation issue. I accidentally picked up a tub of spreadable cream cheese rather than a block at the grocery store one time, and it completely fixed the separation issue!"

"This was so light and airy it was like eating a cloud. However, the second time I made it, it separated and I had clear jello at the bottom. Although it tasted of the lime it did not look as appealing. What did I do wrong?"

"Mine also separated and I am SO disappointed, I was really looking forward to trying this because it sounded so yummy! I didn't see the original story, but wondered about the 'flop' - any suggestions to avoid the separation to those of you who had success with this recipe?"
