Helpful hints

  • For a change in flavor, you could use blackberry flavored gelatin instead of blueberry; raspberry flavored gelatin instead of strawberry; and frozen raspberries instead of strawberries.
  • Pecans and other nuts are high in phosphorus and potassium. Each serving of this dessert contains 4 pecan halves, and remains low in phosphorus and potassium when consumed in the suggested portion. You could reduce the pecans to 1/2 cup or even omit from the recipe for a very low phosphorus, low potassium dessert. For a lower sugar version use sugar-free gelatin and sugar substitute instead of sugar.
