Cherry Gelatin Fruit Salad!

Cherry Gelatin Fruit Salad Sooooo good ...low cal, low sugar!

2 small pkgs cherry gelatin (use sugar-free)
2 cups boiling water
1 can tart pitted cherries
1 20 oz can pineapple in natural juice
4 small bananas (or 3 medium)

Completely dissolve gelatin with the boiling water. Drain cherries into a 2-cup measure, then add cold water to equal 1 1/3 cups of liquid. Add the cold water/juice mixture to gelatin and stir. Then, add the drained cherries, the entire can of pineapple - juice and all. Mix well. Then slice the bananas and add to the mixture and stir. Refrigerate and chill for at least 4 hours or until firm. Serves about 9-10

ALTERNATIVE for if you cannot get Cherry Gelatin
Serves: 4-6
1½ cups of unsweetened cherry juice
¼ cup cool water
¼ cup hot (almost boiling) water
1 tablespoon of Kosher Gelatin Powder
1 cup sliced bananas (about 2)
1 8 oz. can of Pineapple tidbits
1/2 can tart pitted cherries drained

Please note the recipe can be doubled.
Pour the cool water in a large mixing cup and add the gelatin powder.
Stir briskly until mixed- it will start to thicken a lot.
Add the ¼ cup of really hot water and stir to mix- it should be thinner now.
Combine this with the juice and mix well.
Put the fruit into the container that you are going to make the jello in. 8×8 baking dishes work well.
Pour the jello mixture over the fruit and stir lightly to make sure it has coated the fruit too.
Put in the fridge, covered, for at least 2-3 hours or overnight and serve.
