This Jello Fruit Salad is based upon one of hippie_mama's grandmother's recipes. It is very likely the only good jello-food combo that came from the 50's.. Orange Jello and Carrots anyone? Not me.

We make this Jello Fruit Salad for major holidays, family gatherings, parties of all types, and never have any to bring back home with us.

It's easy, tastes great, and people love it.

Step 1: What you need

  • 4 boxes of jello, 2 each of 1 flavor (you can use whatever flavors you want, but we normally stick with flavors that complement the fruit we are using)
  • Sour Cream
  • 1 large package of FRESH Strawberries (dont be lazy and use frozen, fresh strawberries are what makes this fruit salad the best)
  • 3-5 Bananas
  • Crushed Pineapple
  • Water

  • Pan for Boiling Water
  • Measuring Cup
  • 1-2 Bowls for Mixing the Jello and Water
  • Glass Pan or Bowl for the Jello Fruit Salad itself
<p>Do you think I could make this in a nice mold and turn it upside down onto a plate when it is all finished?</p>
In natural food stores in the US, they have Gel desserts that use something vegan. I like them and they set faster than gelatin.
I felt like it was missing something, so i added small container of blueberries ontop of the strawberries. Awesome:) Hope the Easter Bunny digs this dish! Thanx for the easy picture intructions.
im used watermelon and taste better
ewwwww i dont like fruit
I've never tried sour cream with fruits, but I certaintly will after making this! Thanks for sharing this!
It is SO awesome with the sour cream!In fact-the sour cream is a must!
Looks delicious! Great Instructable!
Nothing beats JELLO and strawberries and bananas and them all mixed together! Fantastic instructions. I will somehow have to convince my mom to buy some JELLO mix. (She is a nutritionist, what do you expect?)
Dont forget the pineapple too! heh. I wonder if there is an organic jello out there... surely there is. If nothing else, you could use gelatin with natural fruit flavorings.
there is natural jello here in Canada but im not sure if its in other places cause its made in Canada, usually just buy unflavored gelatin and make your own
