Tried a new dessert tonight. Ran across it in the latest edition of the Kraft Food Magazine. It has Mangos in it which I love! To cut the carbs and calories I used 2% Milk, Sugar Free Jello Mix, Reduced Philly Cheese, and Cool Whip Free. this makes a tasty and refreshing Summer Dessert!  The recipe is below with the Kraft link.

What You Need
1 pkg. (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
1-1/2 cups cold milk
1 pkg. (3.4 oz.) JELL-O Vanilla Flavor Instant Pudding
1-1/2 cups thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, divided
2  mangos, peeled, seeded, chopped
Make It

BEAT cream cheese in medium bowl with mixer until creamy. Gradually beat in milk. Add dry pudding mix; mix well. Whisk in 1 cup COOL WHIP.

LAYER half each of the mangos and pudding mixture in 8 parfait glasses. Repeat layers.

TOP with remaining COOL WHIP.
