Every fancy dinner or potluck needs a fruity side! This is the perfect addition. Cool, creamy, and sweet with fresh berries on top! Everyone from adults to the children love this raspberry jello salad.
How to make easy delicious layered raspberry layered salad
First you will need 2 large boxes of raspberry jello. You can use sugar-free jello or regular jello! Stir for 2 minutes 3 cups of boiling water.
After you have the jello dissolved add in the orange juice and ice until the ice is dissolved. Then divide the jello evenly into two separate bowls.
What do I serve jello in?
You can do multiple ways! if you are going to a pot luck or a causual family dinner use a large bowl or a 9×13 pan to make the raspberry jello salad and people can serve them selves.
OR you can do individual servings. I love to do this for small dinner parties. If you are serving them individually you will want to immediately remove jello from one bowl into the containers.
Add some fresh fruit and place in fridge to chill for 15 minutes! you want it a little more firm so when you later the next on top it won’t fold into the first layer. (if you want to create multiple layers reserve some of this dark red jello for later)
PRO TIP: if serving the jello in individual servings keep them on a sheet cake pan while carrying them back and forth from the refrigerator,
How to create layered jello
Remember that second bowl!? Remove it from the fridge and add one cup of whipped cream or cool whip. Start by gently folding it in, then whisk until nice and smooth!
Add this creamy layer on top of the raspberry jello and fruit! if you reserved some of the dark jello you can alternate to create a layered effect!
Refrigerate until the jello is firm then top with all of your favorite berries and even a garnish of mint!
You want to serve this cold, so don’t pull it out until you are ready to eat. You can totally make this ahead and store with lid or sedan wrap on top. Add berries right before serving.
I’m telling you no one can get enough of this stuff! It’s THAT good!
