Ratings & Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I read through a lot of the reviews before deciding what to do with this recipe. I read through a lot of the reviews before deciding what to do with this recipe. I used a premade graham crust and substituted nonfat vanilla yogurt for the cottage cheese. I garnished with mandarin oranges. This recipe does indeed taste like a creamsicle/dreamsicle. I also made a strawberry version using sugar free strawberry gelatin, premade chocolate crust, and garnished with fresh sliced strawberries. I loved the strawberry one! I think I may use an Oreo crust with the strawberry recipe next time for more chocolate flavor. I took both to a work event and the orange one seemed to get more takers before the strawberry one ever got cut into.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very, Very Good orange creamy pie. Very, Very Good orange creamy pie. You must let it refrigerate for the 4 hours; don't try to cut it before then or is falls apart. Even my Husband loved it and could not believe it was a low fat dessert. If you are on the Weight Watchers Program---this is only 2 points a slice. The WHOLE PIE is only 16 points total; makes 8 slices. I plan to make this again using a different flavor of jello since my Husband loves strawberry. Thanks Kraft for the best recipe I have tried in weeks that not only tasted great but was low points and worked with my Weight Watcher Plan. :-) Jennifer

I made this for a family dinner I recently went to and everyone loved it - including the small children! Tasted great, not too sweet and the orange flavor was perfect. I used a pre-made low fat pie crust, and substitued light vanilla yogurt instead of the cottage cheese (which I thought worked and tasted much better) I also used light Cool whip instead of fat free Cool Whip (wasn't sure how it would be) but since it turned out so good, I will try it with the fat free next time. This was a very easy recipe and I highly recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I brought this to a dinner party and asked everyone to rate it. I brought this to a dinner party and asked everyone to rate it. As you can see, they all thought it was Superb and the women asked for the recipe. I made some changes to the original recipe. I made it with 3 cinnamon graham crackers. For a thicker crust, I suggest adding more graham crackers than that. I increased the Cool Whip to 3 cups and I doubled the rest of the ingredients. I also added 1 T milk to the cottage cheese in the blender. Because I doubled the recipe, my blender would not hold everything. So I blended the cheeses and milk in the blender until smooth. Then poured it into a large bowl mixing in the Cool Whip. I did not think it was too salty, although when buying cottage cheese, I suggest reading labels for salt content. It tasted like a pro made it and was easy to make. My kind of dessert!!!

I've been on a low cal diet for some time so to find recipes like these that are packed with flavor and practically fool-proof is great. As for the previous comment, I always put my cottage cheese in a food processor (or blender) with about a tablespoon of milk for a good amount of time for smooth consistency and even mixing. The dessert comes out creamy and uniform in texture. Anyway, I strongly recommend this recipe.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Me and my boyfriend are trying to eat healthier despite our sweet tooth. Me and my boyfriend are trying to eat healthier despite our sweet tooth. I hate cottage cheese so was a little skeptical about the recipe. I tried-in vain- to get the lumps out of the cottage cheese. Though this is true, the taste was excellent. Next time when i make the recipe i will make it a day or two in advance. As a day or two went by it seemed as if the cottage cheese lumps went away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have made this twice, with cherry and lime jello, though not yet with orange. I have made this twice, with cherry and lime jello, though not yet with orange. I find the filling a little tart, and add 4 packets of Splenda. The first time I made this I was a little short of time, so I popped it into the freezer for about half an hour before serving it. I really like the texture that way -- it's like the frozen lemon merengue or key lime pies I remember from childhood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My husband is a diabetic so finding tasty SF/FF desserts is not easy. My husband is a diabetic so finding tasty SF/FF desserts is not easy. I made this using SF orange jello, SF vanilla yogurt, SF Cool Whip and FF cream cheese. It was very good, but next time I would add more FF cream cheese and less SF yogurt. It was a little too sweet for me. Next time I want to try lemon-lime. This dessert is a keeper. My husband said it was really good. Thanks.
