Serving Size:
One 2-1/2” x 2-1/2” square

    Diet Types:
  • Diabetes
  • Dialysis


  • 30 graham cracker squares
  • 15 ounces canned crushed pineapple in juice
  • 8 packets Splenda® No Calorie Sweetener 
  • 1-1/2 cups Procel® protein powder
  • 1 cup Reddi-Wip® dairy whipped topping
  • 1 packet Knox® unflavored gelatin


  1. Line a 13” x 9-1/2” baking pan with plastic wrap allowing at least 10” to hang on both sides of pan.
  2. Arrange 15 graham cracker squares in the pan and set aside.
  3. Drain pineapple and reserve 1/2 cup of pineapple juice.
  4.  In a large mixing bowl, mix crushed pineapple, Splenda® and Procel®, until there are no lumps.
  5. Fold in whipped topping then set aside. (The folding motion keeps whipped topping airy and light.)
  6. In a small saucepan, boil 1/2-cup pineapple juice. Add 1 packet of unflavored Knox® gelatin. Mix until dissolved then remove from heat.
  7. Lightly fold in gelatin mixture with the whipped topping mixture.
  8. Pour mixture evenly over the graham crackers.
  9. Top mixture with remaining 15 graham cracker squares.
  10. Put plastic wrap from the sides of the pan over the graham crackers. Cover with aluminum foil and seal well. Freeze overnight or at least 6 hours.
  11. After freezing, cut into fifteen 2-1/2” x 2-1/2” pieces and serve.

Helpful hints
