Strawberry Gelatin Dessert Recipe

"I love desserts and strawberries, so I try to combine the two whenever possible," says Virginia Myers of Altamont, Illinois. "This light fluffy gelatin treat goes over well whenever I serve it."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 40 min. + chilling YIELD:9 servings


  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 package (.3 ounce) sugar-free strawberry gelatin
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 4 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup fat-free milk
  • 1 carton (8 ounces) reduced-fat whipped topping


  • 1. In a bowl, combine cracker crumbs, sugar and butter. Press into a greased 9-in. square baking dish. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.
  • 2. Combine strawberries and sugar in a small bowl; let stand for 20 minutes. In another bowl, dissolve gelatin in water. Drain berries, reserving the juice; add enough water to juice to measure 1 cup. Stir berries and juice mixture into gelatin. Refrigerate until partially set.
  • 3. Meanwhile, combine marshmallows and milk in a saucepan. Cook and stir over low heat until blended and smooth. Cool to room temperature, about 15 minutes. Fold in whipped topping, then gelatin mixture. Pour into prepared crust. Refrigerate for 4 hours or until firm. Yield: 9 servings.

"Waaaaay too many carbohydrates. I never use real sugar in any recipe--or marshmallows. IMO, this is not diabetic."
