Pear Lime Gelatin
Total TimePrep: 20 min. + chilling
This is yummy! If it seems to rich use sugar free Jello and lower fat cream cheese. With the leftover cream cheese you can always add chopped onions or garlic to make a yummy dip, get out the crackers or chips and enjoy! We also like to pour some pepper jelly over it. Never waste cream cheese as there are so many other good things to make with it. It doesn't freeze well, however.
This is reminiscent of a salad my aunt always brought to reunions. The lime and pear are a tasty combination. The cream cheese and whipping cream add to the richness. It's light and flavorful.
Since childhood, I have always loved the combination of lime and pears. I love this recipe and have made it half a dozen times. Even a novice at cooking can make it! I wish they still sold cream cheese in 3oz. packages like they did years ago--I can only find the 8-oz. packages and have to cut them up, leaving the rest to go bad in the fridge!
Just noticed ~~ this is also diabetic friendly, something I can have, without the guilt. LOL
This salad looks beautiful. You can sure bet this will win positive compliments at our house. Thank you for sharing. Joscy
Good! I followed the recipe exactly, except I pureed the pears instead of mashing them... I figured my family would've been less likely to eat them with the smooth & chunky texture, so I made it all smooth. They called it green mousse :-) It's not a recipe I would make often, pretty rich, but definitely one to keep on hand for the holidays! Mine turned out a tad runny, but I think it's because I didn't let it set up long enough... but supper was ready and I needed to get it on the table! Next time I make this, I'll give it more time in the fridge... still yummy though! If you want something to compare the flavor to, I thought it tasted very similar to key lime whipped yogurt!
This is so easy, creamy and delicious! A friend tried it using lemon jello and it was equally good.
I always double this because we like it so much. I boil 2 c. juice/water in microwave,then put it in the blender with the jello until dissolved (careful, it's hot). Then I add 8oz. cream cheese a piece at a time while blending. Then put in your pears, and pulse until they are coarse. Pour into a bowl with the last cup of water, and add the topping when it's partially set. It makes this so easy!
One of my favourites to make. So creamy & pure deliciousness!!
I really enjoy this recipe cause it's fast and it's scrumptious and goes well with any menu. Thanks for yet another favorite
