Angel Food Dessert

Sometimes in the summer you want a nice cool dessert that doesn't involve baking. This dessert fills the bill and you can also make it with very little sugar if you desire. I know some of my readers are diabetic or pre-diabetic and one dear reader has gestational diabetes. This dessert might be one that will fit into your diet plan.

Angel Food Dessert

1/2 of a prepared angel food cake
1 3 oz. package sugar free raspberry gelatin
1 cup boiling water
10 oz. frozen raspberries (reserve a few for garnishing)
8 oz. low-fat raspberry yogurt

Tear the cake into small pieces about 3/4 inch in size. Set aside. Pour boiling water on the gelatin and stir to dissolve. Add the frozen berries and stir. Sometimes this will be enough to thicken the gelatin, if not, refrigerate for a few minutes until the gelatin is slightly thickened--about the consistency of an egg white.
Place half of the cake cubes in a large bowl. Top with half of the yogurt, and then half of the gelatin mixture. Repeat the layers and then chill at least two hours before serving. Garnish with whipped topping and reserved berries.

Variations: You can also make this with strawberries, strawberry gelatin, and strawberry yogurt or peaches, etc. You could substitute vanilla or lemon yogurt or pudding or whipped topping.

    This dessert looks yummy for a light summer treat. How well does it keep? or is it the kind of thing that needs to be eaten all at once? I try to limit making desserts to the weekends only. And with my dad visiting on Sundays, there are only 4 of us to eat it. 🙂
