"Really love the taste! I used sugar free jello, Stevia as sugar substitute, fresh sliced strawberries, and low fat dairy. My only complaint was that the pretzel crust was so crumbly. I did put pretzels in the blender. Any suggestions how to get a more compact crust that sticks together?"

"Great recipe. I have been making it for years. You can make it with Splenda in place of sugar and use sugar free jello. This recipe is a must for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners."
