MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 30, 2013

My husband is a Type 1 diabetic, & there's no way I could serve him this dish with the regular canned cranberry sauce. Way too much sugar in it. I make my own cranberry sauce with Splenda or Stevia, so I substituted my homemade cranberry sauce for this jello salad, as other reviewers also did. If you use the crushed pineapple in it's own juice, the sugar content combined with the homemade cranberry sauce, is fairly low & more suitable for a diabetic, IMO. I also poured the mixture into a pretty glass bowl instead of using a mold. A good recipe with the modification of homemade cranberry sauce with Splenda or Stevia instead of canned. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

While this sounds delicious, it's the carb equivalent of half a meal for a diabetic. To make it lower carb, make your own cranberry sauce with Splenda,. Also check the labels on the fat free sour cream and whipped topping. Most fat free or reduced fat products add sugar when they reduce the fat. I hope this is helpful.

MY REVIEW

I use whole cranberries and oranges with sugar free orange and raspberry jellos, with chopped pecans. My guys don't like celery so I drop that as well. Add a little splenda to the Jello while it is still hot if the berries are really tart. I top with a little fat free cool whip for the ones who worry about the fat and not the calories. I could eat this three times a day if it only lasted long enough. 5 stars.

I grew up on a recipe similar to this one. Instead of the cranberry sauce my mother ground up whole cranberries, put in chopped celery, walnuts and used mandarin oranges instead of an orange.
