Orange and grapefruit juices give these cute dessert cups their zesty flavor. They're pretty enough to serve guests but easy enough to make for an everyday snack...or even at breakfast. "I tried out this recipe on friends, and they loved it," relates Barb Klenk of Bridgeton, New Jersey.

"I love this dessert. It is really easy to make. I would omit the pineapple next time, and add an additional 1/4 cup of grapefruit juice instead of the pineapple juice, for a creamier dessert. I liked the whipped topping mix better than cool whip. I used regular jello and found that using the grapefruit juice really reduced the sweetness, which was nice."
