"I've made this many times before and have changed it just a bit. I use sugar-free gelatin, lite cool-whip, lite yogurt, fat free cream cheese. I noticed this decreased the super sweetness from the original. We love it!"

"Very good. I doubled the cream cheese filling and only used a 6 oz. container of yogurt."

"Delicious! The only recommendation is that I would make more of the cream cheese layer, so there would be enough to cover the crust."
