Excellent Teresa. Thick, rich, smooth, creamy and full of flavor. It was quick and easy to make and it tasted great. Thank you for sharing a recipe that made my hubby very happy. Made just as written and wouldn't change a thing... for Down Home Cooking.
This is full of nice creaminess...we loved the mandarin oranges that kept popping out of the pudding...I put the mixture in individual containers...this made at least 6 servings...this tasted just like the orange/vanilla ice cream you got from the ice cream truck when you were little...it brought back some nice memories...made for "Pick Me" tag game...
This is such a fun recipe. I did increase the amount of water for the pineapple jello about 1/4 cup because it didn't look like it would be enough to cover the jello cubes, and it set sup very nicely anyway. My kids loved the contrast between creamy ans sweet-tart. Thank you for sharing! Made for CQ '16.
Except for the fact that I used fresh strawberries, I made this exactly as written.
What a lovely light dessert, that turns out so pretty. I topped mine with some Persian fairy floss and it looked wonderful!
Next time I will use frozen strawberries or at least freeze some fresh ones, as I think the frozen would mix into the mixture a little better.
But with that said ...This was a beautiful and great tasting dessert, that in my opinion, could be made with any fruit matched to the same variety of jelly.
The family loved this and I will be making this again over summer. Thanks Teresa.
This was amazing! I ended up using two 3 oz. boxes of orange Jello, a 3 oz. box of lemon, and a 3 oz. box of white grape because that's how life went. I was a little worried the flavour would be too intense, but we loved it! Next time I'll put some whipped cream on top to serve, although it doesn't really need it. Definitely one I'll be making again!
Mom Florence sure knew how to please her kid's, and adult's of this house also!
I made with chocolate pudding and strawberry and blueberry jelly. We really enjoyed it and next time I am going with the original vanilla pudding with the strawberry.
All round winner here!
I've always wanted to make this type of recipe because of it's piece of nostalgia to the 50's but maybe more because of it's connection to aunt Bethany's jello mold depicted in the movie "Christmas Vacation". Only if Aunt Bethany could have made this particular recipe instead of her yucky green mold, nobody at the dinner table would have stuck up their nose! Linda, this is a sure keeper as using the juices that were drained from the fruit added to it's lovely taste. I followed the recipe to a T except that I forgot to add the green grapes, though I went to the supermarket especially to pick them up. We ate it after enjoying Easter dinner as an after-dinner treat. I will sure add this to my repertoire and can see how this will be a regular on those hot summer days that are right around the corner. Thank you Linda for sharing!
DeeeeeLicious! easy refreshing, such a wonderful refrigerator dessert, we all loved this, I can't wait to repeat it again. I know I will make this lots of times during hot summer months, thanks very much ssej1078 for sharing your wonderful dessert recipe here!
Fantastic. Made for our holiday meal. It was light and refreshing among all the heavier sides. I enjoyed it the next morning for breakfast too! I used craisins in addition to the fresh cranberries. I like the flavor the juice gives the gelatin base. I'll definitely be making again! Thanks Mike! Made for Billboard tag game Nov 2014.
Delicious and cute!
I prepared only one third of the recipe for 3 people.
I used grapes from the garden (still not frozen) which were to small to be peeled and cut in to half.
I reduced the maracuja to one maracuja and this was enough as the grapes used were very tasty.
I substituted the gelatine with agar; this has an impact with the color as the jelly got more turbid than with gelatine, but equally delicious.
This light and fruity dessert had great sucess and I know my family would love this again for sure.
