20 Min


5 Min


1 box
strawberry banana jello ( large box or two small) may be sugar free if so desired
1 can(s)
crushed pineapple (drained)
bananas mashed
1 box
frozen sliced strawberries ( do not thaw) may use fresh strawberries but the set up time will be longer
1 pt
whipped topping or more if desired
1 pt
imo imitation sour cream, or real sour cream which will be a bit more runny so i always use the imo it's firmer texture is better in this receipe
1 c
finely chopped walnuts or pecans ( optional)

Directions Step-By-Step

Heat jello water according to directions adding jello powder and disolving. DONOT add cold water to heated mixture as direction tell you to. The frozen strawberries added make up for this. Add all ingredients to jello remembering to drain pineapple. The nuts are optional but are very good in this.
DONOT add whipped topping and IMO/sour cream. Put 1/2 Jello mixture in a pretty clear bowl and put in fridge to set. Leave remaining out until the one in fridge is set up. I then mix 1/2 whipped topping with 1/2 IMO this makes a cream cheese tasting mixture that you spread on top set jello. ( for holidays I color this topping green or red) Place unset jello on top the spread on topping mixture. Then return to fridge until set. Complete by topjping off with either plain whipped topping or the remaining mixture of IMO and Topping. I then sprinkle nuts on top for a pretty look.
