This light and lovely dessert is absolutely heavenly! Marge Hubrich of St. Cloud, Minnesota suggests, "Try this with fresh strawberries, raspberries or blueberries, too, using the corresponding flavor of gelatin. It's delicious with any of them."

"Made it with raspberries. I'm waiting until Colorado peaches are in season this summer to make it that way. I think my grown kids would love this with mandarin oranges since they love mandarin orage salad with cottage cheese and whipped cream and marshmallows. I served it at a meeting at my house and had requests for seconds!! YUM!!!"

"I loved this recipe! For the fruit I used sliced strawberries and blueberries. It looked so patriotic that I'll make it again for the 4th of July. The recipe was very easy and tasted like strawberry shortcake - only better and looked fancier. I'll make it again using other fruits and jello flavors too."

"This dessert was FANTASTIC! I made it with strawberries and it was so easy. Hard to believe it's healthy. My family loved it and demanded I make it again. I recommend that you make a double batch because it will go quickly."

"Made this using raspberry jell-o & frozen raspberries - bought a round angel food cake & cut it into 9 pieces. Wonderful!!

My husband already asked me to make it again! 1/4 c is about the size of a small package of jell-o"

"this recipe is wonderful, I've made it many times, to cut back on the sugar I use splenda instead and sugar free gelatin (1/2 pkg or to taste) and sugar free cool whip. Everyone loved it."

"This looks delicious but not very healthy with all that sugar. How do you get 15 servings from a 9x13 pan????"

"Heavenly! For those wondering about a loaf shape, forget that and just use any angel food cake and cut into nine slices. Loafs can sometimes be found in the fresh cake section of the supermarket."

"Fruit flavored gelatin powder can be purchased in bulk and purchased on the web and in some specialty markets. I suspect that the terminology here was a way to avoid the brand name Jello."
