Lively Lemon-Guava Dessert Squares

This light and flavourful low fat dessert does not require any baking and features our guava sauce. It can be frozen and then thawed in the refrigerator before serving. Be sure to note the variations at the bottom of the recipe.


Crust: 1-1/2 cups chocolate or graham cracker cookie crumbs
1/4 cup melted butter

Filling: 1- 4 serving size packaged lemon jelly powder ( light or regular)
1 cup boiling water
16 ounces evaporated milk, chilled in the fridge
1/2- 1 cup sugar or granulated sweetener (to taste)
2 cups guava sauce


Reserve 1/4 cup crumbs for topping. Combine remaining crumbs with butter and press into the bottom of a 9×13 pan.

Dissolve jelly powder in boiling water and chill in freezer until cool to touch. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whip evaporated milk until soft peaks form. Stir in sugar, guava sauce and cooled jelly mixture, mixing until thoroughly combined.

Refrigerate until set (at least 2 hours). Cut into squares to serve.


1) Omit crust and serve in dessert bowls garnished with fresh fruit
2) Use 1 cup guava sauce and 1 cup canned crushed pineapple
3) Substitute lime jelly powder for the lemon jelly powder
