This is the perfect light dessert!
It’s always a hit at summer parties as it’s cold and refreshing with the perfect amount of sweetness.
The best thing is it’s not that bad for you!!!
And you can make this MANY different ways and flavors!
Here is how I make ours:
8 oz tub Cool Whip (you can use light and even Fat Free if you choose)
8 oz container of cottage cheese (you can add more or less if you like)
1 package jello any flavor (I used raspberry tonight)
1 can fruit cocktail (or fruit of your choice)
1 cup miniature marshmallows
Mix all together in a bowl and chill.
It’s that simple!
NOTES: You can make this with mandarin oranges and orange jello, pineapple pieces with pineapple jello, raspberry with blue raspberry jello etc. You can add shredded coconut as well! Experiment!
Also you can make this with a package of pudding and the coolwhip and add a cup of chocolate chips and the minature marshmallows. Mix all and chill.
This is a win win dessert that can be made many ways!
Oh memories! We used to have (one variation or another, usually green, of) this often in my childhood.
