Fresh fruit or gelatin des
serts have always been the
traditional fare of calorie coun
ters. A combination of these
two, when prepared with a
minimum of sweetening, maizes
for a dessert that adds new ex
citement to otherwise drab diet
menus. Using whipped New Pet
Instant Nonfat Dry Milk, which
contains less than 1 per cent
fat, tangy orange chunks and
gelatin, makes a creamy de
licious Regal Orange Dessert.

have the added touch of a
special dessert, with the addi
tion of only 122 calories a
serving, and you'll marvel at
the beauty and taste of this
unusual dessert.
