When I made this last week I used “Tropical Fruit Salad” from Aldi’s – it has large diced pineapple, guava, red and yellow papaya in passion fruit juice- very pretty and only 88¢ a can. Fruit cocktail or any mixed canned fruit works just as well. You can use regular or diet gelatin. If you use regular gelatin, it is about 103 calories per serving.
