This is a light and fluffy dessert that was easy to prepare and taste good. I am not a huge fan of whipped topping so I do not think I will make it again.

My family always chooses this dessert when we need something light and not-too-sweet after a good Mexican meal! So tasty and easy to make!

This is such a refreshing dessert! I made it many years ago and will be bringing it to the Easter table this year. It's awesome with other flavors of Jello!

We substitute Splenda for the sugar and Sugar Free Jello for the sugar type. It comes out wonderful. My hubby makes several of these for the annual family reunion - they ALL get eaten! People put in special requests! We freeze often ours - just a few minutes to thaw(so it can be cut) and it is wonderful - like an ice cream dessert.

This recipe is really good and flexible. If you have raspberry jello and sprinkle sparkles, kids love it! It's light and enjoyable for the adults, too. Really easy to make!

Delicious with any regular flavor gelatin. Wouldn't try grape or any far out flavors.
