Note to previous reviewer: This is my family's recipe and I wanted to say that I actually like the little pockets of sour cream in this jello salad! So I don't mix it to totally melt the sour cream, but of course, its all to taste!
I was hoping for something better, I guess. Easy to make, so that is a plus.
I thought this was great! we loved the yummy strawberry flavor. I think next time I might try making it with yogurt instead of sour cream to lighten it a bit. Thanks Tan for a great recipe!
i dont know why this recipe doesnt have more reviews, people must not make a lot of jello my family LOVES jello and they LOVE this recipe i did alter it a bit, i use 1 cup of sour cream instead of 2 and i add 1 cup of cold water after the jello is added to the 2 cups boiling water and i mix the smashed banana with the sour cream. Great recipe we will use it for all major holidays along with the 7 layer jello and pretzel jello.
I've made this dish twice now and we love it! I actually mixed everything in the blender and it turned out fantastic! Thank you for sharing.
Refreshing! My 2 yr. old doesn't like the jiggly texture of jello yet, but loves this, since it is so creamy. I used plain yogurt in place of sour cream. If someone doesn't like the chunks of sour cream, all they have to do is mix it in with the banana mixture before stirring into jello mixture. We like using blackberries rather than strawberries. I've also made it with orange jello and blueberries. Yum!
Loved this salad! We ate it as soon as it jelled and it was much better the day after when the flavors had time to meld, so I would give it 6 stars if I could! After reading about the sour cream lumps, I mixed the sour cream in with the banana and the added some of the jello mixture little by little until the sour cream was runny and then dumped it all together! I want to try this again with a pretzel crust. Thanks for the recipe!
I made one change to this recipe and that was adding a half package of mini marshmallows to the salad when I folded in the sour cream. The recipe dosen't specify using low sugar or lighter products but I did use sugar free Jello and reduced fat sour cream. This was really yummy!
