This twist on the familiar ice cream sundae makes a fun snack. Be sure to include the kids in the measuring and stirring.

Ingredients

1envelope (.25 ounce) unflavored gelatin
2cups cold orange juice, divided
4tablespoons sugar
2cups sliced strawberries
1 sliced banana
1/4 vanilla low-fat yogurt
fresh mint (optional)

Instructions

  1. Sprinkle gelatin over 1 cup cold orange juice in bowl; let stand 5 minutes to soften. Stir. Heat remaining juice until almost boiling; stir in 3 tablespoons sugar. Add to gelatin mixture; stir until gelatin is completely dissolved, about 5 minutes.
  2. Pour gelatin mixture into an 8-inch square baking pan. Refrigerate until firm, about 4 hours.
  3. Place strawberries in a medium bowl. Sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon sugar; toss to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until gelatin is set.
  4. Cut firm gelatin into cubes. Place a layer of cubes in each of 4 serving glasses. Add a layer of strawberries and bananas, another layer of cubes, and a final layer of strawberries and bananas. Top each glass with 1 tablespoon yogurt and garnish with mint sprigs, if desired.
