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!

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!
