It takes just three ingredients to make. Jell-O, whipped topping and strawberries. They go together to create a light and elegant dessert.
I make mine with sugar-free Jell-O and light whipped topping for a low calorie, sweet-tooth satisfying, no-guilt, anytime treat.

you cannot go wrong with jello, I love how you made them tilted, so cute.
I have lots of jello packets in my pantry but I have to admit I almost never make it. But your photos look so beautiful that I think I am going to make this one. I love that you included ways to make it lower in calories. I need to watch that. Thank you for sharing it.
