I’m no chef, but I do LOVE food, so I am all about great tasting yet simple recipes! This recipe for Christmas (or any time) fruit salad is one that I learned from my mother. It is great for any occasion, but it makes a pretty dish that is perfectly YUMMY to take to Christmas gatherings. Not only that, but it is inexpensive to prepare! It calls for only 4 ingredients! What is even better is that you can make it low in calorie, and it still tastes just as wonderful!
Notice that I use lite whipped topping, sugar free Jello, and low fat cottage cheese. I am sure you could also find pineapple chunks with no added sugar. I used raspberry flavored Jello this time , but sometimes I use cherry or strawberry.
Simply mix all of these ingredients in a bowl.
I did the math, and with these ingredients, it comes to approximately 100 calories for 1/2 cup. These calories could be reduced even more if you use pineapple chunks with no sugar added and just 1/2 carton of whipped topping. I rarely use the entire carton of whipped topping because it is plenty sweet with just the Jello!
