LAYERED DESSERT PARFAIT
Seriously…nothin’ to it! The hardest part is waiting for it to set…and then waiting for it to set…and finally waiting for it to set. That’s it!
I used berry/cherry flavors in this, but any gelatin combo is wonderful. If you can’t find fresh raspberries, do the mandarin oranges and citrus flavored gelatin. Go crazy and top with any complimentary fruit, nuts, chocolate curls, crushed candy bars – whatever.
Bring out your prettiest glasses and impress your guests.
And, yes…the name is redundant…I know a parfait IS layered…I just couldn’t think of a better name.
Three .3-ounce packages (the small ones) sugar free Jell-O, any flavor or mixed
One 8-ounce package fat-free cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
3 tablespoons Splenda
1 teaspoon vanilla
Make one package of Jell-O according to package directions and divide among 6 glasses. (You can make this as a whole dessert, also…pour into a large glass bowl or long rectangular baking dish.) Place in refrigerator and chill until completely set.
In a blender container or food processor bowl combine the second package of Jell-O with 1 cup boiling water and the softened cream cheese. Hold down the lid and blend or process until smooth. DO NOT ADD THE COLD WATER. Carefully pour the cheese mixture over the set layer of Jell-O in the glasses or large bowl. Return to refrigerator and chill until completely set.
Make the remaining package of Jell-O according to directions on the box. Carefully pour over the set cream cheese layer. Return to refrigerator and chill until completely set.
In a medium bowl combine the whipping cream, Splenda, and vanilla. Beat until soft peaks form. Spread over completely set top layer of Jell-O. Garnish with fresh berries or other fruits. Makes 6 servings.
