"Church" Salad Recipe (THM)

I have been following the Trim Healthy Mama way of eating since November and I am happy with how it is going.  There are some things I always enjoyed eating, but haven't thought of how they would work on this "diet".  I am slowly converting my old recipes over to Trim Healthy Mama approved recipes.  "Church" Salad is one of them.  My Mother in Law makes this jello salad with cherry jell-o and canned fruit. It is so good!  Oh! By the way, I call it "Church" Salad  because of what my friend, Colleen, said at Thanksgiving at our house years ago. She made a comment that she only sees jello salads at church pot lucks and she called it church salad. That's what we've called it since.

I can eat this salad now thanks to sugar free jello.

Church Salad
2 c cottage cheese
1 box sugar free Jell-o
2 cups whipped cream (I sweetened it with stevia)
1 c raspberries or berries
Mix the Jell-o with the cottage cheese for a few minutes to help dissolve crystals. Fold in the whipped cream. Fold in the berries. Refrigerate for a couple of hours.  Enjoy!
I would like to try this with sugar free cherry Jell-o, but our grocery store doesn't carry it. Also, I think I would like it with strawberries too.


  1. I would love to try this. But I need some clarification. Do you "whip" up the cream before folding it in or do you just pour the 35% whipping cream liquid. Sorry... culinary challenged here!

    1. Hi Tracy,
      I did whip the cream first.
      I hope you like it!
