“This is a low calorie, diabetic friendly, chilled fruit dessert salad. I found this recipe in an old Rockingham County Extension Homemakers Cookbook. I needed some low fat, low cal, desserts I can have with having Diabetes. I didn't want to give up my desserts, so trying to find recipes that work or adapt them to work for me is a challenge, but this one is great! I made it this afternoon and we had it tonight and it is now my new favorite dessert! Prep time does not include the final hours of chilling.”
