Tart raspberry filling is swirled into a low-fat cream filling in these beautiful bars. They're a festive treat for a summer picnic or party.

Gluten Free

I made these for some Fireman to say Thank You. I used my Vita Mix instead of a food processor and it was super easy and easy clean up. I am disabled and don't have lots of energy for clean up. I had no problem with this recipe. I will definitely make again. Even my daughter who hates most of our GF stuff loved this and wanted me to save more for us :)

Awesome and easy

Fresh, chilled, summery dessert

I'll make these again, but my husband said they weren't sweet enough for him. I'm a fan though. These are 3 points on Weight Watchers - plus, a chilled summer, fruit dessert is a welcome treat to me. I plan to try it with other fruits, too. Strawberries, blueberries, maybe peaches would work nicely and be sweeter without adding more sugar.

These are delicious and healthy. There are so many different fruits you could use. I did not find it necessary to boil the fruit, only the gelatin mixture and then add fresh or frozen fruit. Today I am making them with fresh California strawberries.

Wow, SO incredible!

Positively WONDERFUL!! I substituted Splenda for the sugar and used Agar flakes instead of gelatin, and the bars were sublime (with only 0.6 grams of sugar for 2 bars!). I made these for my diabetic father-in-law for New Year's eve dessert and he couldn't believe how heavenly they were!! I can't wait to use strawberries & blueberries for 4th of July!! Yes, the recipe is involved and uses a lot of bowls and equipment...but if you love to cook & bake and love healthy but delicious food, it is worth it!!

Delicious & Healthy

These bars are INCREDIBLE!

These bars are one of the best receipes I've ever found. Not only are they delicious and very refreshing, but they aren't expencive to make. Almost all of the ingredients are ones you have in your house and the ones you need to buy (like the raspberries and walnuts) are not expencive to buy. I would reccomend this to everyone! All of my friends love these and I tell everyone about them. A must try!

To the person complaining about the pans and bowls - yes they do use a few more pans then a normal cookie receipe, but if you don't like using a few extra bowls when you cook stick to things in the grocery store like the tubes of cookie dough. If you clean as you go it doesn't make a mess at all and the end result is very much worth it!

Refreshing, delicious, healthy, cheap
