"You can eat a piece of this light and airy dessert without feeling one bit guilty," notes Beverly Marshall of Orting, Washington. "I adapted this luscious treat from another recipe. It is super-easy to make."

"This is so easy to change to a sugar-free dessert. I changed the lime jell-o to strawberry and exchanged the lemon with some strawberry puree and topped it with a fresh strawberry. Thanks from all our many diabetic friends. Mary Foreman [email protected]"
