Strawberry Banana Delight

In North Platte, Nebraska, Mary Blackledge relies on a classic pairing of flavors for her whipped gelatin. "It's an attractive low-sugar recipe my diet-restricted husband and I enjoy," she says.

    Already made this dessert twice and neighbor asked for recipe. Husband is on low carb diet this dessert satisfies his sweet tooth. We added some strawberries to the second batch along with the bananas. That got rave reviews.

    It separated - became watery, after refrigeration; the top had a different texture than the texture below.

    Loved it. However after a couple hours after setting the water started separating a bit. Don't know why. But very delicious.

    Family loved this healthy and diabetic friendly recipe. We use the canned topping to avoid the trans fats/hydrogenated oils. A definite keeper!
