1 envelope unflavored gelatin
2 tablespoons water
3 large egg whites
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 teaspoons grated lemon rind
1 teaspoon lemon extract
1 cup frozen whipped topping, thawed
3/4 cup lemon fat-free yogurt (such as Yoplait)
Dash of salt
Lemon rind strips (optional)


Sprinkle gelatin over water in a small microwave-safe bowl; let stand 1 minute. Microwave at high 15 seconds, stirring until gelatin dissolves; cool slightly.

Beat egg whites at high speed of a mixer until soft peaks form. Combine sugar and lemon juice in a saucepan; cook over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Increase heat to medium-high, and cook, without stirring, until candy thermometer registers 240°. Pour hot sugar syrup in a thin stream over egg whites, beating at medium speed, then at high speed until stiff peaks form (about 5 minutes). Beat in gelatin mixture, grated lemon rind, and lemon extract. Fold in whipped topping, yogurt, and salt. Spoon 3/4 cup lemon mixture into each of 8 (6-ounce) custard cups or ramekins. Cover and freeze 4 hours or up to 24 hours. Serve frozen with Blackberry-Raspberry Sauce. Garnish with lemon rind strips, if desired.
