"Simple recipe can whip it up in short order. So tasty and can be eaten in place of Ice Cream. I'm sending it on to my Granddaughters."
"I have not tried it yet, but here is a tip. If there is an ingredient I do not like in a recipe I just omit it and the recipe tastes just as good without than with"
"Made this the other day, did not change any of the ingredients, family loved this,will make again"
"I checked all the ingredients, everything I liked, made and tasted not perfect but very good. If I do not like what is in a recipe I don't make it, end of story."
"I just made this and can't wait for it to freeze. I cheated and tasted it before it went into the freezer and it was absolutely delicious. As someone that is trying to watch my fat and sugar intake this recipe is a dream come true!! Low fat vanilla yogurt and fat free Cool Whip will help keep me on track while still enjoying a nice summer dessert!!"
"I've been making this recipe for many years & my whole family & many friends love it. As a Type I diabetic for 43 yrs who's in very good health despite it, I appreciate the opportunity to share helpful comments with all of you. Thank you! "
"excellent cool summer treat"
"I have not made this yet but sounds perfect for a great summer time treat for my grandkids. None of us are diabetic, but I always use fat-free cool whip and low cal yogurt. Can hardly wait to try this."
"Very similar to another Taste of Home recipe......Strawberry Rhubarb Cream. (148 cal. in 1/2 cup). Very delicious for rhubarb season.The ingredients in Orange Whip are diabetic friendly. "
"great idea...my husband is diabetic and this is what I do for a nice topping or dip for fruit: 1 container sour cream plus 1 package vanilla instant pudding (sugar free if necessary)...whip with a fork and you are finished. I added the oranges drained and some orange zest...... quick dessert!"
"I've been cooking for so many years, like so many of you gals, we can read the recipe and figure out if we want to try it or not. This just in... my mom who suffers with dementia, thinks she needs to look like she did when she got married 63 years ago at 110 pounds. She refuses to eat but, has sweet tooth. I'm making this as fattening as I can to get some fat calories into her.."
"To make this really healthy, use an organic yogurt, zest an orange and add it and skip the cool whip or topping which is nothing but oils and high fructose corn syrup. Instead of canned fruit, supreme an orange or clementine and chop up the fruit. If you need to thicken it up use heavy cream and whip up a cup and use just enough to give it more form. This can still be used by diabetics and it is healthier. Look at your yogurt containers and how much sugar is in it. Use Organic plain yogurt and add the fruit yourself. Read the labels. If it doesn't say cane sugar it is beet sugar which along with the high fructose corn syrup are both 98% GMOs. We need to be more aware of what we are eating not just how easy it is and sweet it is. I am not diabetic but I have cut out all high fructose corn syrup and buy only organic and my grocery bill has dropped. Be healthy."
"Can anyone from T of H give us the nutritional info (calories per serving) for this recipe? Hopefully I'm not just "blind" and didn't miss it. I, too, agree with the people who don't appreciate those who down-rate a recipe when they haven't tried it. If you don't like the ingredients, don't make it. Also, this recipe does look like it'd be super easy to convert to sugar-free/non-fat for those of us who are watching our sugar or calorie intake."
"I started making a recipe like this with two containers (6 oz.) of strawberry yogurt and one 8 oz. whip topping for fruit dip in my catering business. My children would eat any leftovers like the Orange whip dessert. I needed a quick dessert for company so I diced some strawberries to add to the mixture and put it in a graham cracker pie shell and garnished it with additional fanned berries and has been a hit ever since. I also do this with key lime yogurt adding zest of 1 lime and the juice for a light refreshing key lime pie."
"Very good and can use the sugar free ...Mandarins in water...Sugar free yogurt..use pure juice which has natural sugars added a little zest and the 95% fat free coolwhip. Nice little low cal for those who want that but lets face it Diabetics have to watch all sugars..Moderation. I have to agree so many people rate a recipe without even trying. Most of us are looking for what people think after they try it.Modify it to suit yourself. Include those in reviews so people can see that the recipe works and help those who have food issues enjoy a nice recipe.."
"This is a very tasty dish just as written - and yes, it is diabetic friendly as it has a moderated glycemic index taken in the portions as recommended. This is a great recipe for these hot GA days, try it and enjoy!!"
"As stated it is 'diabetic friendly'. It can be modified to less sugared ingredients. Sounds yummy and refreshing. Can't wait to make it."
"It could be made with - sugar free yogurt, sugar free whipped topping ... don't know about the oranges and juice - anyway, it does sound quite delicious. I might just have to give it a try."
"This is fantastic! And versatile, it could be used a a dip or frosting or eaten alone! Love it!"
