I tried it. The frozen fruit said "no sugar added" but had 9 g of sugar. I used peaches and put them in the food processor. It came out pretty good. The texture is different, I can't describe it. That may be because of using a food processor. Anyway, long story short, it tastes good. Not sure about the "sugar free" part, but if you use fresh fruit, at least it'll be natural sugar. Just use it in moderation. P.S. If you don't think it's a healthy recipe, (I kinda agree) take this as a base and try to "healthy it up" instead of just pointing out what's wrong with it.

Sorry, but this is not a healthy recipe. The artificial sugars, chemicals, colors, preservatives in the diet soda and Jello have long term, accumulative effects on the body that are not good. It would be better for you to just go ahead and eat the sugar! If getting healthy is your goal, you need to know what you're putting into your body.

Can't we buy fresh strawberries all year round?

Preserves and jams were "popular" long time ago when in winter they could not buy any fresh fruit and veggies.

I eat fresh fruit.
