My mom let me make this as a kid. I still love it every so often, but now I make it low sugar. I've added the low sugar notes at the end. This is from an old church cookbook that lost the cover 30 years ago.

How to Make 7 up Jello Salad (w or w/out sugar)

Step-by-Step

  • 1Dissolve gelatin in boiling water,stirring until completely dissolved.

  • 3Pour into your favorite jello mold or large bowl and chill until firm.
  • 4Sugar free options - Use sugar free gelatin, pineapple in its own juice or no sugar added, omit the added sugar or use your favorite sugar substitute and use sugar-free 7-up or Sprite. I have also used cottage cheese, drained, in place of the cream cheese.
