A Cool and Easy Low Calorie Dessert


We are having a heat wave in California and I was looking for a cool dessert, preferably low calorie. I made some orange jello and wanted to dress it up a bit. I had some applesauce, so added some to the dish along with the jello. The combination was refreshing and tasty, plus it was easy to make. I used sugar free jello and unsweetened applesauce, so it made for a healthy, low calorie dessert. Just, what I’d been looking for.
