Tropical Jello Salad


We have this every holiday,and I don't know where the recipe actually came from. Basically it's a fruit salad with a twist. We have this every holiday,and I don't know where the recipe actually came from. Basically it's a fruit salad with a twist.
Number of Servings: 4


    1 can tropical fruit cocktail, drained
    1 package of sugar free jello (orange is best for this recipe, as it gives it a creamsicle taste)
    1 container of lite cool whip
    2 c. fat free cottage cheese (you can mush it up if you'd like a smoother texture, but either way it's fine)


Drain the tropical fruit and put it in a bowl. Add the whipped cream, unmade jello mix, and the cream cheese. For a smoother texture, you can slightly blend the cottage cheese. Refrigerate for about and hour, the mixture will solidify. Enjoy!

You can also do this with regular fruit cocktail and any flavor of sugar free jello.

  • There's no cream cheese among the ingredients but it's in the directions. Do we add cream cheese at all? Or do you mean cottage cheese? - 11/14/14

  • ICanHearNow:
    Mix dry jello with coolwhip, then the cottage cheese, and last the fruit. I use less coolwhip and small curd cottage cheese, but that's my personal preference. My mom uses large curd and 3/4 container coolwhip
