Fat Free Cool Whip Dessert

If you're looking for an amazingly easy, delicious, healthy and versatile dessert, you've hit the jack pot! The possibilities are endless with this yummy stuff. Who knew a tub of cool whip and box of jello or pudding could be so great?!? I personally liked this better with the instant pudding (I tried cheesecake pudding), but it's also very good with the jello (that's cherry flavored jello pictured). If you're wanting a thick, creamy, mousse like dessert you should try it with instant pudding, but if your in the mood for a fruity, foamy dessert the jello's for you... and if you can't decide, make both! Carrie's Cooking and Recipes came through with this one. Thanks Carrie :)

FAT FREE COOL WHIP DESSERT
1 (3.9 ounce) package of sugar-free Jello gelatin or pudding (flavor of choice)
1 (8 ounce) tub of the lowest fat free cool whip (or sugar free if you can't have sugar)

Empty the jello powder directly into the tub of whipped cream and stir well. Put the whipped cream tub back in the fridge for a few hours or overnight to allow the jello crystals to be absorbed.

Your version is easier than mine, I'll have to try it! I make the jello according to package directions, then after only an hour in the fridge (so the jello isn't totally set) I whisk in the cool whip, then let it hang out in the fridge another few hours before eating.

Oh my gosh, isn't this dessert the best?!! We have gone through a tub of Cool Whip a week for the past couple months. Our favorite is the sugar-free White Chocolate Pudding. It's delicious! I love this low-calorie dessert so much, I am glad you liked it too :-)
