“A yummy lite parfait with a beautiful presentation. The lemon flavour isn't all that prominent, just nice and fresh. Cooking time is approximate chill time.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (10 1/4 g) package sugar-free lemon Jell-O powder
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 12 cup cold water
  • 1 cup vanilla ice cream

  3. Spoon ice cream jelly mixture evenly into 4 parfait glasses; chill in fridge.
