"This is a deliciously light dessert that works well for summer picnics or even between cake layers. My Peruvian mother-in-law was kind enough to give me this recipe, and I thought you might like it, as well."

  1. Bring water to a boil in a small saucepan. Stir in gelatin until completely dissolved, then place into refrigerator until cool (but not solid).
  2. Pour evaporated milk into a large bowl, and whip with a hand mixer until fluffy and doubled in volume. While continuing to beat, slowly pour in cooled gelatin. When all of the gelatin has been incorporated, pour the mixture into a mold or bowl and chill until set, about 3 hours. Once set, serve garnished with raspberries.

Interesting. Used fat free evap, don't think that made a difference. Whipped up beautifully. The texture is thick and foamy but very light on the palate, so it takes a little getting used to. You expect something more dense from the look of it, but what you get is ethereal when you take a spoonful. Give it a try. Oh, a hint, chill your bowl and beaters or whip with your evap. Will give you even more volume.

I've been making something like this for years. We call it creamed jello. I decided to try your recipe to see the difference and I prefered mine. I use only 1 cup of water versus the cup and a half. Also, I skip the cooling down and just throw it all together and mix. Mine has a thicker consistency but still soft and fluffy. With the product I ended up with, there is NO way that this could ever be put into a mold. I also use 2% evap milk to save on calories. You can use any kind of jello you like. The possiblities are endless.
