Ingredients Convert to Metric

  • 3 oz raspberry-flavored sugar-free gelatin powder *
  • 1/2 cup boiling water
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 7 1/4 oz frozen blueberries, thawed and drained (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 1 cup frozen light whipped dessert topping, thawed (about 2.4 oz)
  • 4 mint sprigs (optional, for garnish)

Directions:

In a bowl, combine gelatin with boiling water; stir until completely dissolved. Stir in cold water. Refrigerate just until gelatin starts to mound.

In a blender container, add 1/2 of the gelatin mixture and 1/2 of the blueberries; blend until smooth. Pour into a bowl. Repeat one more time with the remaining gelatin and blueberries.

Fold in whipped dessert topping. Scrape mixture into a shallow container. Chill until firm, about three hours.

Spoon about 3/4 cup of the Blueberry Whip into each of four dessert glasses. Garnish with a mint sprig, if desired.

Variations:

* If desired, replace an equal amount of sugar-free raspberry gelatin with regular gelatin.

Layered Blueberry Whip: Spoon alternate layers of the completed Blueberry Whip blueberries into dessert glasses, using approximately 3/4 cup Blueberry Whip and 1/4 cup blueberries per serving. Garnish with mint sprig. Makes 4 (1 cup) servings. (Note: This variation uses above entire recipe and adds an additional 1 cup of thawed and drained blueberries.)
