Easy Dessert Recipe For Everyday
Since this such an easy dessert to make, you can use it for everyday meals as well. On those occasions, you just don't need to put into fancy dishes.
Actually that is how I first tried it. My sister served this to us for dessert when she cooked a meal for us in her new home. It is light, fluffy, and really delicious.
Cherry works well for Valentine's Day because it fits into the color scheme for the day, Any other time you serve it you can use whichever one is your favorite flavor. Changing the flavor gives you a little variety, so you can serve it everyday, without getting bored of it.
Low Calorie Dessert
I needed to ask her for the recipe when I ended up buying sugar free Jello by mistake. I knew if I added the Cool whip it would sweeten it up.
However if you want to make it a completely low calorie dessert you can get both the Jello and the Cool Whip in the sugar free variety.
This will give some more ideas for what else you can do with Jello.
