Sugar-Free Jello

My go-to sugar-free gelatin dessert is simply to add a lot of fruit (mostly berries) to the package directions. Does anybody here have a more ambitious recipe using sugar free gelatin? As a kid, I remember some sort of Jello/Cool Whip/fruit concoction that was delicious. Maybe there's a healthier version of that? Ideas appreciated!

    Something like Yoplait Whips - take a 4 serving package of jello add 1 cup boiling water. Stir. Chill until it's slightly thickened. Beat in 1 cup of Greek yogurt, use a mixer if you want a light airy section on the top. Pour into desert cups and chill until thickened.

    Surprisingly - orange jello is really good with crushed pineapple and shredded carrots.

    Growing up I remember a lime jello salad with chopped celery, shredded carrots and chopped cabbage.

    You might be thinking of Weight Watchers jello pudding fluff

    There are lower calorie Cool Whip options, sugar free or low fat. You could use yogurt too.

    My favorite is called “under the sea”. Plain lime jello with chopped pears on bottom. Whipped lime jello with cream cheese,
    Cool whip, or yogurt added on top.

    I thought that pineapple was the one fruit you couldn't use in Jello?

    I am going to attempt to make the "Whips" thing this afternoon. Wish me luck! Do you ever add fruit to that?

    This was soooo goooood! I dissolved the package in 1c. boiling water, but then added ~1c halved frozen strawberries - stirred until it started to thicken and then added ~1c Greek yogurt. Gave it a good mix with an electric hand mixer and chilled. O.M.G!!!! It didn't layer - but I was hoping it wouldn't. This might be my new fave dessert.

    I think I was traumatized as a child: my mother made jello EVERYTHING, so I can't the stuff now! I think she even tried to out chunks of old jello into new jello :-)
