Labor Day week has been crazy at my house, but I wanted to share the awesome recipe I made to share at my family’s
get together this Labor Day. It is for Fruity Whipped Jello Salad, and it’s always a family favorite, and I never come home with left-overs.
Here's the recipe:
2 large tubs non-dairy whipped topping (such as Cool Whip)
1 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese
1 large package or 2 small package (for a total of 6 oz.) gelatin mix (such as Jello)
6 large cans canned fruit – I usually use 2-3 cans of the very cherry fruit cocktail, 1-2 cans mandarin oranges, and 1-2 cans pineapple chunks. However,
I have also used tropical canned fruit for fun, canned cubed peaches or pears.
Fresh fruit such as sliced bananas, sliced strawberries or grapes (optional)
1 bag colored mini marshmallows
Whip cream cheese into 1 tub whipped topping.
Mix well with hand mixer or stand mixture until cream cheese and whipped topping are well combined.
Add jello powder, 1 package at a time, and blend into whipped topping mixture until well combined.
Thoroughly drain all canned fruit, and chop fresh fruit if using.
Fold fruit slowly into whipped topping mixture.
Last fold in marshmallows until everything is well combined. You may serve this immediately, but it's better if chilled for at least an hour.
You can also see this recipe in my allrecipes.com personal recipe box -
here if you would like to leave a review or a picture. I love this recipe because it’s very easy, very fun and very versitle. This time I went on a whim and did a berry blue color Jello I had never tried before. Jello has so many flavors and colors you
can match this salad to any occasion, party theme, or to your desired taste. If you choose to use small packages you can mix and match flavors and do something like orange raspberry or strawberry grape. I haven’t ever tried this, and you might come out with
a zany color, but the sky’s the limit with the different combinations you could come up with. I’ve also noticed that marshmallow are coming out in flavors now – well, I’ve seen strawberry ones and berry ones, but those that I’ve seen have been a little bigger
than the mini marshmallows I usually use in this salad, but would be worth a try if you wanted to. And the fruit combinations just add more fun to the options.
If you do give this recipe a try I would love to hear about it and I hope you and your family had a really fun and memorable Labor Day!
