Qty Measure Ingredient


2 packages (4-serving size) or 1

package (8- serving size) strawberry sugar

5 cups boiling water, divided

2/3 cup plain lowfat yogurt, divided

2 packages (4-serving size) or 1

package (8- serving size) lime sugar free gelatin

Instructions: Completely dissolve strawberry flavor gelatin in 2 1/2 cups of the boiling water. Pour 1 1/2 cups of the dissolved gelatin into 6-cup ring mold which has been lightly sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Chill until set but not firm, about 30 minutes. Meanwhile, chill remaining gelatin in bowl until slightly thickened; gradually blend in 1/3 cup of the yogurt. Spoon over gelatin in mold. Chill until set but not firm, about 15 minutes. Repeat process with lime gelatin, the remaining 2 1/2 cups boiling water and the remaining 1/3 cup yogurt. Chill 1 1/2 cups dissolved lime flavor gelatin until thoroughly cooled before pouring into mold. (Warm gelatin mixture could soften the layer beneath it and cause mixture to run together.) Chill until set, about 2 hours. Unmold. Makes 6 cups or 12 servings.

Try this mold with other flavor combinations. For more flavor and only 5 extra calories per serving, you can use vanilla lowfat yogurt in place of the plain lowfat yogurt.
