Pretty Christmas Jello Dessert (that's calorie friendly)

Doesn't this dessert look so festive!
Made with just three ingredients, and if your use sugar-free Jell-O and light whipped topping, it won't do any harm to your waistline.
I posted this a long time ago but sharing again because it is such a great treat when we are tempted by so many high-octane desserts at this time of year. 

JELLO STRAWBERRY PARFAIT

INGREDIENTS
1 package (3oz) Jello-O brand gelatin, any flavor
1 cup sliced fresh fruit
1 cup thawed Cool Whip whipped topping

DIRECTIONS

Prepare gelatin according to package directions. Chill until slightly thickened. Set aside 1/3 cup. Add fruit to remaining gelatin; spoon into 4 to 5 glasses. Chill glasses at an angle until jello is set.

Meanwhile, fold whipped topping into measured (1/3 cup) gelatin. Spoon topping mixture into glasses of set jello. Chill. Garnish with tiny mint leaves, if desired.

{try substituting fresh raspberries or well drained canned peaches for the strawberries and your favorite jello flavor.  Lime jello with sliced bananas sounds good too}

This is a keeper. I'm trying to eat more carefully, but sometimes fruit alone doesn't really work for me. It looks so pretty, too.
