My really runny version in a pretty bowl at Easter.
1pkg. (8oz.) cool whip*
1pkg. (3oz.) strawberry powdered gelatin mix
1 small 12-16oz. tub cottage cheese**
1c. fresh strawberries diced (optional)
Simply mix all ingredients together really well and serve cold, eat it with a spoon. It's that easy. Serves: A Lot! You can freeze it too for an ice-cream like treat.
*I usually like to use whipping cream to make my own whipped cream, and it works for this but it's much runnier. CoolWhip actually does work better.
**If you or your children don't like the texture of cottage cheese, simply throw it in the blender for a few seconds until it's well blended. It becomes really creamy and you'd never know what it was.
Make sure you get all the gelatin mixed in really well or you have powdery swirls when you scrape the bottom to pour it into your serving bowl like this;
