I made this with the sugar-free gelatin and the low fat whipped topping and it turned out great. I would advise that the whipped topping is completely thawed and that you stir it in with a wisk. Also I chilled it and served it in martini glasses and it came out in beautiful layers with no extra effort! Read More

This is certainly easy and affordable to make but I would never serve this to company. The finished product taste like creamy lemon jello nothing like a mousse. I also didn't like the artificial taste of the lemonade coating my throat after 4-5 bites. I made this with the kids since it was a fun easy dessert on a hot day. Overall the texture is too jello-like but I wasn't expecting much due to the simple ingredients. I was going to serve this to guests but decided against it. Fun for kids but nothing more. Read More

Wonderful tart flavor. I made it for a group of 50 people used lime instead of lemon. Piped into pastry shells and decorated with white chocolate flowers whipped topping and raspberry sauce. I made it for a womens retreat and they all just raved over its flavor and look. Definitely will make again varying the flavors for some more fun!!! Read More

This is excellent! I didn't have the lemon jello or the lemonade so I used lime jello and limeade instead. It was a big hit with my family! My hubby said it tasted like Key Lime. Yum!!! Read More

We really enjoyed this and the fact that it can be frozen is a definite plus. The texture is very much like a mousse it's light and the lemon flavor is bold with just enough sweet-tart flavor. I used sugar free jell-o and fat-free whipped topping with no sacrifice to taste. It took close to 1-1/2 hours for the lemonade mixture to thicken to the point where I could beat in the whipped topping and several hours longer in the fridge to jell so plan accordingly. For those of you on Weight Watchers I calculated the points based on 12 servings and the point value is 2. Very nice end to a spring meal. Read More

I dissolved the jello in only 2 cups boiling water then mixed it with the frozen lemonade concentrate and chilled until it began to set (40 minutes or so?). Then I beat in the cool whip (in small amounts at first so it didn't get lumpy) and put it in a 9 x 13 pan in the freezer for about 10 minutes. While it was in the freezer I pureed 3 cups fresh strawberries then poured this in lines over the lemon mixture and swirled with a knife. Returned it to the freezer until firm. It was so yummy..tastes like strawberry lemonade! Read More

Sorry we all thought this tasted like lemon flavored cool whip. I could never eat more than a bite or two of this. Maybe I should try it with a different flavor. We like lemons though and lemonade but we all thought this was not good at all. Read More
