I love summer!  It’s just a great season for many reasons. 

But in Indiana, it gets hot.  And it gets really humid during the summer here too.

So I have some favorite summertime treats that are a cool and refreshing indulgence.

I am sharing with you another refreshing dessert that is great to eat in the heat of the summer.  And it’s a no-brainer when it comes to putting this recipe together.  Simple ingredients.  Simple preparation.

Applesauce Refresher

24 oz. unsweetened applesauce

1 pkg. sugar-free Jell-o mix in a box, flavor of your choice

1 cup boiling water

Place 1 cup water in microwave safe bowl and heat till boiling.  Add Jell-o mix and stir until dissolved.  Let sit for 30 min. or until cool.  Then stir in applesauce until mixed and place in refrigerator until cool.  Then spoon in to dish, serve, eat and feel refreshed!

I used raspberry flavored gelatin, but you could use any flavor of gelatin.  Strawberry would be good too.

You can call this a dessert, a treat or a meal.  I could eat it for any of those and all of those.  Plus it’s fat free so I feel no shame in gulping this down.
