Strawberry and Yogurt Gelatin Confection


2 cups water
2  1.4 oz pkgs Rasberry Jello
2  1.4 oz pkgs Orange Jello
8-12 oz  lite non-dairy whipped topping (depending upon preference)            
16 oz lite nonfat vanilla flavored yogurt
16 oz strawberries, cut into small cubes
12-18 ice cubes

       In microwave, bring 2 cups water to a near boil/boil. Remove from microwave and add the jello. Stir two minutes or till completely dissolved. Add 12 ice cubes and begin stirring to melt the ice cubes and to cool & thicken the jello.Continue to stir & add as many ice cubes as necessary until mixture is almost completely set, but still chunky. Quickly remove any remaining ice cubes with a slotted spoon & place into blender or food processor. Add yogurt and mix together until fully blended. The desired consistency should not be too thin at this point. If it is, place in freezer for 30-60 seconds to thicken up just a bit. In a clear serving bowl or trifle dish, layer with 1/3 of jello/yogurt mixture, 4 oz whipped topping, and 1/3 of strawberries. Repeat process 2 more times. Refrigerate 2 hours before serving.
