Almond Ice

Rated as 4.1 out of 5 Stars

"This refreshing fruit salad recipe with a wonderful twist comes from Hawaii. It's a conversation piece as well...great for parties and potlucks. The Almond Ice will have everyone guessing why these 'ice cubes' don't melt!! Hint: Avoid citrus fruits so the gelatin remains firm."

I must be too used to fruit flavored jello, because this was not good at all. Very pretty, but I did not like it.

I'm giving this 4 stars because it has potential! I hated the cantaloupe... but my dad loved it. I really liked the strawberries and grapes with the almond gelatin. I agree that it may need more...

Pretty good stuff--light and tasty. Bit of sugar or whipped cream and it passes as a fine dessert.
