Layered Jello

Colleen Sowa


This is a very simple desert that looks like you worked hard to make it... You can proudly serve this to anyone!

I make variations of this dessert:

By using sugar free Jell-O and low fat and low sugar Cool Whip it becomes a diet / diabetic friendly recipe.

Another Thing I sometimes do is place strawberries or other fruits in the bottom of the glass... it gives yet another pretty layer of flavor!

  • 2 pkg
    strawberry jell-0 (make according to package directions minus 1/4 cup cold water)
  • 1 large
    container cool whip (thawed)
  • 1/2 pt
    fresh strawberries (whole or sliced and fanned out)

How to Make Layered Jello


  1. Make the Jell-O according to package directions (minus... 1/4 cup of the cold water).
  2. After the Jell-O is totally disolved and cooled, put it in the blender along with 1/2 cup of Cool Whip. Blend on high for 1 minute. Pour about half of this into pretty glasses. Add more Cool Whip to blender (your judgement). Blend on high for 1 minute. Pour this into the same glasses you put the first half into.
  3. Refrigerate for 2 hours or more. Top with a spoon of Cool Whip and garnish with strawberry. Serve.
