    PINEAPPLE LIME TEMPTATION

    1 can (8 oz.) crushed pineapple in juice
    2 packages (4-serving size) sugar-free lime Jell-O
    2 cups boiling water
    1 1/2 cups cold liquid (water plus reserved pineapple juice)
    1/2 teaspoon ginger

    Mix dry gelatin and ginger in bowl; set aside. Drain pineapple, reserving juice. Dissolve gelatin and ginger in boiling water. Add water and juice mixture. Chill until thickened. Fold in pineapple and pour into 6-cup mold or bowl. Chill until firm, about 4 hours. Unmold. Garnish as desired. Makes about eight 1/2-cup servings.

    Per serving: 4.5g carbohydrates; 24 calories.

    Note: You can speed up the "chill until thickened" part of these recipes by putting the filled mold/bowl in the freezer for 60-90 minutes. After 60 minutes, check often as mixture will thicken quickly once it's cold. At that point, add the pineapple (and carrots, if making Orange Glow Salad) and refrigerate until firm.
