Reviews for Pineapple Lime Gelatin
"Just made this for a St. Pat's party. Doubled it and was able to make it stretch to feed 45 people along with cupcakes. Everyone raved about. Now have to give out the recipe to several people. Thanks for sharing. I'm not a lime person by any means and I enjoyed it. Will definitely make again soon."
"This recipe adds color and flavor to any meal. Good for a pot luck."
"Everyone loved this recipe. I make this every year for the holidays and even for desert. This desert is light, fluffy and lightly sweetened."
"I get requests to make this recipe every holiday get together. This is my husband's favorite and this is by far the best "green stuff" recipe I have found, don't skip out on the cream cheese, it is much better than the recipes that use cottage cheese."
"Pineapple lime gelatin makes a special dessert for special meals and one my family simply loves. We make it for birthdays and special days and keep the recipe private as we don't want our guests knowing how it was made."
"Love this recipe and serve often. Sometimes I substitute minimarshmallows and just mix them in. I use finely shredded cheddar instead of cream cheese. The white spots anf orange shreds add color and add a little more flavor!"
