Strawberry Delight

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Tue, 10/05/2022 - 5:15pm in

1 envelope strawberry flavored low-calorie gelatin
1 cup canned skimmed evaporated milk
Artificial sweetener to equal 2 tablespoons sugar
1 cup fresh or frozen unsweetened strawberries, sliced
½ teaspoon vanilla

Prepare gelatin according to package directions; chill until set. Put milk, bowl and beaters in freezer for about 1 hour – milk should be icy. Add 1/2 sugar substitute to strawberries (if frozen berries are used, they should be partially thawed.) Beat milk with vanilla and remaining sugar substitute at high speed until stiff peaks form. Quickly whip gelatin and strawberries together. Fold gelatin into whipped milk and mix gently until no white streaks remain. Taste for sweetness and add more sugar substitute if desired – use caution as too much sugar substitute becomes bitter tasting.
