I like this but in the nutrition information it shows 0 grams of sugar. Yet the recipe calls for 1/2 cup of sugar.

I used strawberry flavored gelatin and added fresh strawberries. I also used splenda instead of sugar.j2toes

This is so easy to change to a sugar-free dessert. I changed the lime jell-o to strawberry and exchanged the lemon with some strawberry puree and topped it with a fresh strawberry. Thanks from all our many diabetic friends. Mary Foreman [email protected]
