This was too sweet as is and only a 3 star recipe. After tasting, I mixed in 1/4 cup plain non-fat yogurt and 1/4 cup fat free sour cream. Topped with mini marshmallows and coconut upon serving.

I had this at a babyshower last week and everyone there requested the recipe. I made a batch this weekend and served it with angel food cake (to reduce the fat) My daughter raved about how good...

Mom made this all the time when I was growing up...always served it over angel food or pound cake. I still make it and everyone always loves it!
