Layered Recipe Tips:

1. Refrigerate your wine/parfait glasses so that they do not liquify the jello when you are assembling them.

2. You can use different flavours (colours) for different events, such as: orange & blueberry for Halloween, cherry, blueberry for July 4, Cherry (or raspberry) for Canada Day, Lime & Cherry for Christmas, etc.

Recipe Notes:

1. Sugar-free Jello is a healthy dessert and so are fruits - to make this recipe for layered jello into a totally healthy dessert, choose a low-fat version of Cool Whip.

2. Try and choose a healthier version of canned fruits as well - such as : packed in water - not in sugared syrup or juice.

3. You can also choose to use fresh fruits for this recipe, especially when they are in season. Berries are an excellent source of many vitamins and are full of antioxidants too. These go very well with jello.
