This diabetic dessert is simple to do, refreshing, and low carb. It also looks great on the plate.
Dissolve the Jello in one cup of very hot water. Stir gently for at least 2 minutes to assure it is completely dissolved. Add the Splenda during this process. When completely dissolved add the applesauce, mix well and place in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours until it's completely set.
This can be cut in cubes, spooned out, or dished up in creative ways. I used a melon baller to make small spheres which I served with a small chunk of fresh pineapple. It also goes well with low-cal yogurt in a contrasting flavor.
Each (app 1/2 cup) serving of this (without the pineapple) contains an estimated:

I served this once with fresh pineapple (sided with a bit of blackberry brandy) and again with lo-cal raspberry yogurt. It was delicious both times.
