this is a no fail, if you make it using the ingredients listed (don't substitute)- it is light and refreshing. Super simple to put together, does not take very long

Delicious and easy to prepare. This is a keeper exactly as written. Definitely a 5* recipe. Ignore the rating by Selkat as there were so many changes to this recipe that she or he created their own recipe and reviewed it, not the original.

I started by replacing the sour cream with light sour cream and using 1/2 C stevia in the Raw C for C.For the topping I used lite Cool Whip and used the orange peal and fruit just as you did. I haven't figured the calories saved, fat saved or sugar saved, but I know I took out all the guilt!

Delicious and easy to make. I made it 3 different times, one being Easter dessert. It was a big hit and I have requests to make it again. I heated it on the stove vs the microwave though. Great recipe!
