Gelatin Dessert

Gelatin Dessert

So gelatin desserts get a bad rap sometimes. In Utah, the infamous green gelatin dessert with carrots lives on at potlucks. But gelatin desserts aren’t all bad and they can be quite refreshing.

Instead of getting fancy, this is just a simple dessert. No time-consuming waiting periods between layers of gelatin for this dessert. Just prep, pour, refrigerate, and serve it up!

Even though this is a sugar-free recipe, I couldn’t help myself from selecting “Sugar Foot Stomp” played by Louis Armstrong as today’s song! This gelatin dessert tastes as though it is very sweet like sugar!
