“I use this during the holidays because of the color combination, but it's good anytime!” With cranberry sauce, pineapple and cream cheese, there's a wonderful variety of flavors in this recipe. Barbara Knapp - Bennington, Vermont


  • 1 package (.3 ounce) sugar-free lime gelatin
  • 3 cups boiling water, divided
  • 1 can (8 ounces) unsweetened crushed pineapple, undrained
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons unflavored gelatin

  • 2 packages (.3 ounce each) sugar-free strawberry gelatin
