Super yummy.
Oh and for all the scoffers and this isn't natural, live the life of a diabetic with all the dietary restrictions for a month and then let's talk. Finding something that tastes great, doesn't take hours to prepare and is something you WANT to share with friends is always top notch in my book.

This recipe is unusually tasty for a diabetic dessert. I made it exactly as described, except for I just used some of those little drink packets that I already had on hand, and measured them with a measuring spoon. Something else I like about this one is that it's a very flexible recipe, in that you could use any flavor of drink mix that you preferred, although the lemonade one is delicious! BTW—to respond to a few of the comments regarding the healthiness of this recipe: diabetic health needs are unique in that you have to watch carbohydrates. So fruit, for example, is quite high in carbohydrates, and therefore they have to be eaten in moderation. To find a recipe that doesn't contain flour or other high-carb ingredients but is still decent-tasting is a real find. Also, don't criticize artificial sweeteners until you've had to live with a carbohydrate allotment of 140 for a while. I was thrilled to be able to make this for my husband so he could have a dessert for Easter dinner along with the rest of us, and his blood sugar levels still remained low.

How is this a healthy recipe? Skim milk - "whipped topping" - fat free - Crystal Light: Citric Acid, Potassium Citrate, Maltodextrin, Aspartame (Phenylketonurics: Contains Phenylalanine), Magnesium Oxide, Contains Less than 2% of Natural Flavor, Acesulfame, Potassium, Soy Lecithin, Artificial Color, Red 40. Choose "real" food, not these unhealthy ingredients. :(

Evaziem, you should probably do some research. Type 1 is NOT caused by diet. Ask a doctor. As for the tub of crystal light, you only use 1½ tsp. Use the rest for drinks.

Desserts? For diabetics or anybody? How about some plane berries?
On PBS Dr. Amen, M.D., a famous "brain doc" said: "Yes, I eat a dessert and it's berries…" He is not diabetic. Maybe that is why he is NOT!

wheres the fruit? all I see is crystal light drink. Why does it look like it has real fruit bits in it if there is no fruit.
