"This is fast and elegant--everyone always thinks it must be a complicated recipe but it's shamefully simple. I don't know why, but I always confess after serving it that it only took a few minutes to make. Either pour it into one bowl or individual serving dishes, and garnish with fresh fruit, such as strawberries or mandarin slices. Try it with pineapple or lime juice in place of the grapefruit, if you like!"

This is what I expected, we have a similar recipe that we've been making for years but it uses whipping cream instead of the cool whip. I've been wondering if there was a way to make it less fat...
