Dear Readers of the Greater Rochester area,
Thirty two years ago, Jeannette bought a house on the County Line in Webster. That is where she met her neighbor Rita. Her family was so close to Rita that her children actually called Rita, Gramma Rita. Rita was known for the wonderful desserts that she used to make. One dessert in particular caught Jeannette’s fancy, so she asked Rita how to make this dessert. This dessert is very easy to make. It is so luscious and delicious, you will think it’s full of calories and hard to make. It is a Jell-O fruit whip. As a matter of fact, Jeannette brought two different types of this Jell-O fruit whip to her daughter’s bridal shower last Sunday. So today Jeannette would like to share this dessert with you. Now if you’re ready, let’s get started.
For supplies you will need:
A large mixing bowl
2 9×13 disposable aluminum pans
Aluminum foil to cover your pans
For ingredients you will need:
4 16 oz. low fat tubs of cool whip thawed
1 large can of sliced peaches drained and cut into bit size pieces
2 large cans of mandarin oranges drained
4 sugar free packages of orange Jell-O
4 sugar free packages of peach Jell-O
These two tins will serve a party of 50 people comfortably.
For the first fruit whip take two tubs of cool whip and put them in the large mixing bowl. When that is done, take the 4 packages of peach Jell-O and sprinkle it onto the cool whip. Now take your spatula and gently fold the Jell-O into the cool whip. When that is done, gently fold in your peaches. After everything is gently folded in and mixed thoroughly, place your fruit whip in the pan and cover with some aluminum foil. Now refrigerate for at least 4 hours. When the whip is set, it can be served.
Next wash your bowl and spatula. Dry them, then repeat the process with the rest of the ingredients. After everything is done and set up, you will have a very luscious peach fruit whip and a very refreshing orange fruit whip. Jeannette’s favorite is the peach whip and Jeannette’s children’s favorite is the orange whip. This is the type of dessert where you can think outside of the box. Just match your fruits to the same flavor of Jell-O, and bingo, you have a new and interesting dessert.
Rita was mostly known for her strawberry fruit whip. Sadly, Rita passed away 23 years ago due to Breast Cancer. Now every time Jeannette makes this dessert, she thinks of Rita with warm memories and all the things she taught her in the kitchen.
