Lemon meringue cups

This is a nice light dessert/snack that also a nice way to get some dairy in!  In this picture I made lime meringue :)

I found the original recipe here.

Lemon Meringue Cups 100% simply filling
1 package of sugar free lemon jello
1 cup of boiling water
1-2 cups of light vanilla yogurt (If you want it firmer use less yogurt. I usually use 1 1/2c of yogurt)

Add jello packet to the boiling water and stir for a while, then add the yogurt and stir for another couple of minutes. Put into small cups and place into the refrigerator until set.

Points will depend on a lot of things. How much yogurt you use and how many cups you make. I usually make 4 good size cups and since I'm doing Simply Filling they are 100% simply filling.
If you're not doing simply filling then figure our many points the amount of yogurt you are using is then divided them by the number of cups you use. If you use a light yogurt it should come out to 1-2 pts per serving depending on what yogurt you use and how much you use.

This will totally work for my plan. I will try it using Greek yogurt. Thanks! I assume this is the small, 4-serving packet of Jello, right? I don't remember if sugar free Jello comes in 2 sizes.

Yes it was the small or regular size. I've used greek yogurt and it comes out great.

This totally solves my problem of what to do with the 4 pkgs of cherry jello I have in the pantry!
Just made up a batch and I used 0% plain greek yogurt.
Thanks, Suzanne. :D

Hey, I already do this but add juice to the jello to make it a bit healthier and I also will add fruit to the jello/yogurt mix.
Like this:
Raspberry jello
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup fruit juice (anything I have)
boiled together
1 cup yogurt (I use normal kind)
1 cup fresh or frozen berries

My mother-in-law thinks jello is the worse food for you so it made me want it even more but I just made it a bit healthier.
