Pear Lime Gelatin
Total TimePrep: 20 min. + chilling
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
I have made this recipe many times, and each time it is a hit. Thanks for sharing. I also tried it with cherries blended thru a blender so they are nice and smooth then used wild cherry jell-o, this is an awesome change.
