  1. My absolute favorite and I usually double the recipe. I can use up fruit I have laying around I love using berries and mixing up the fruit. I use some Splenda to bring down the amount of sugar.
  2. Love this recipe! I've made it 3 times in the last 2 weeks or so...a great way to use up the milk you can't seem to finish!;)
  3. Very easy to make and very tasty. Paired it with some cherry preserves instead of the fruit cocktail.
  4. I made this with soy milk and topped with chopped fresh pear. Really great healthy dessert. Next time will make a dble recipe!
  5. Very light taste - did the raspberry sauce with some fresh berries - used small flower molds. Very good almond flavor!
  6. Simple recipe. Can be served at the most elegant of gatherings. Skip the fruit coctail. Use fresh diced fruit such as pear papaya and mango. This recipe is far superior to the "Almond Jelly" recipe on this website.
  7. I love this.:) Add as less gelatin as possible for a wonderful panna cotta.
  8. I like it. It's a flexible dish that can be dressed up lots of different ways. I'm also a fan of almond flavoring and I like that it's not too heavy.
  9. This is different from anything I've ever tried before so it took a bit of "getting used to." That being said this is a wonderful quick light dessert and would be perfect on a hot summer day.
