Remember Jello from your school cafeteria? Hey, I’ll admit I still like the stuff and it’s a cold dessert that’s great during the TX summer. But it can be a little….boring.
A couple of years ago, I came across a post from Hungry Girl (I LOVE her site!) that turned blah Jello into a dreamsicle flavored, low calorie dessert. Wiggly, mousse-y, and very good. Strange name, yes, but really there’s nothing else to call this thing….it’s a Bowl o’ Blob 🙂
You can find her original post here. I’ve also typed up the recipe below, but can’t take credit for it in any way. So if you want a dessert that’s super low in calories for a BIG serving and tastes like a dreamsicle, give it a try!
