    Sometimes we need a recipe that isn't devoid of calories or part of a totally perfect diet--some of the reviewers forgot that with this plan, we can eat what we want as long as we plan for it, do it in moderation, practice portion control etc...I like the idea of a fruit based dessert=thanks! - 1/16/10

    I deleted the milk altogether, but you could use evap instead of sweetened condensed. I added walnuts, coconut, mandarin oranges. I've had it with canned apricots, diced, and it's also good that way. If you're going to eat it right away you can add banana; otherwise they become dark. Yummo!!!! - 1/16/10

    substitute lo-cal jello for the milk and low fat cool whip. To that, any combination of fruit will work. - 1/16/10

    I have made this before and it is delicious. It is definitely a dessert, and the addition of nuts is a wonderful idea. I love it frozen for parties. Why not use lower fat or lower sugar versions of whipped topping and/or condensed milk? - 8/1/08

    I am diabetic and can see MANY ways to tweak this recipe to make it fit inot my diet! I am shocked to see so many rude comments about this recipe! We're not al going to agree but let's disagree in a more respectful way. After all, if a recipe isn't your cup of tea don't make it! Simple. - 3/16/11

    Used less than 1/4c. condensed milk (low fat condensed). Will not use next time to save calories. Prefer to substitute calories with 1/3c chop walnuts Added mandarin oranges in juice. As someone else said everything can be found in low fat and/or less sugar versions. Remember 8 servings. Delicious! - 12/23/08

    I halve the sweetened condensed milk as it was too sweet for my taste. (wonder how it would taste with chocolate Cool Whip.) Goes well with homemade sponge cake. This recipe freezes GREAT! - 3/7/07

    I think every diet that is strickly about health all of the time would get old quick. Also we can all benefit from the ideas given to make this less fattening and better healthwise. This is very tasty in most of the ways given. Please let's not be rude to one another. Don't be healthy and mean. - 3/16/11

    I've been making this recipe, only with Strawberry Pie Filling since the 1980's. It is very high in calories but, oooohhhh, so good! Never tried it with Cherry pie filling and since I like cherries better than strawberries, I bet it would be much better! - 1/16/10

    A favorite "pot lucK" dish from the past we called "Dad's Cherry Salad". We add drained mandarin oranges. Now, when we do make it, we use fat-free condensed milk, lite cherry pie filling and lite whipped topping. I seldom use "non-food", empty calorie items like "whipped topping" but did today. - 12/5/10
