7 fluid ounces
lemon-lime flavored carbonated beverage
1 (3 ounce) package
lime flavored Jell-O® mix
1 (20 ounce) can
crushed pineapple with juice
frozen whipped topping, thawed
I found out why some people say it is runny. Well if you mix in the pineapple using a mixer it makes the juice in the pieces of pineapple come out. If you just stir in the pineapple gently no problem. Hope this helps It was a hit at bunco everyone wants to recipe.
I thought this was just OK. I received a few compliments, but I think they may have been out of politeness. I thought it was way too runny, but the taste was not bad.
This was awesome! The trick is to make it the night before so it has enough time in the fridge to firm up.
Pay close attention to the amount of 7-up you use. When it is runny, most likely you added the whole can, or more than 7 oz. My sis did this, and of course, it was runny.
Just a fyi, fresh pineapple has an enzyme that prevents gelatin from setting. Only use canned pineapple in any jello recipe. You need to fold the pineapple in rather than beat it.
I followed the recipe exactly except that I put in coconut instead of the pecans. Also, after the 1st step, I did not allow the marshmallow/soda mixture to cool before adding the other ingredients. I could not figure out how the cream cheese would mix in unless it could melt in.
It turned out great and was very delicious! It was the perfect addition to our holiday meal. I made the recipe the day before so it had plenty of time to chill.
The taste was good - pineapple & lime - refeshing. It turned out slightly soupy - I exactly measured the 7 oz. of soda so it must be the juice with the crushed pineapple that varies among brand or size. After being in the refrigerator for over 24 hrs., I ended up putting it in the freezer and then lettin it thaw 30 min. prior to serving.
We really enjoyed this light & creamy dessert. I used sugar free jello and also melted my marshmallows in Fresca. I also used light cool whip & cream cheese. It still turned out wonderfully delicious. I will make this again.
