Refrigerate: 5 Hours


  • 2 envelope(s) unflavored gelatin
  • 1/2 cup(s) cold water
  • 1 3-ounce package(s) ladyfingers, split
  • 1 1/2 cup(s) fat-free milk
  • 1/2 cup(s) refrigerated French vanilla nondairy creamer
  • 1 package(s) (3.4 ounces) instant lemon pudding mix
  • 1 12-ounce carton(s) frozen reduced-fat whipped topping, thawed, divided
  • 3 cup(s) mixed fresh berries
  • 2 cup(s) sliced fresh strawberries


  1. • In a small saucepan, sprinkle gelatin over cold water; let stand for 1 minute. Cook over low heat, stirring until gelatin is completely dissolved. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  2. • Cut ladyfingers in half widthwise; arrange cut side down around the sides of an ungreased 9-in. springform pan. Place remaining ladyfingers in the bottom of the pan (bottom will not be completely covered).
  3. • In a large bowl, whisk the milk, creamer and pudding mix for 2 minutes. Let stand for 2 minutes or until soft-set. Stir in gelatin mixture. Fold in 3 cups whipped topping.
  4. • Spread 2 cups of filling evenly into prepared pan; top with mixed berries. Spread with remaining filling (filling will be higher than ladyfinger border). Cover and refrigerate for 5 hours or until set. Garnish with remaining whipped topping and the strawberries.
