I pulled this Jello strawberry parfait recipe from my file archives and wondered why it got lost for so long. It is hard to believe a dessert this good won’t cause sweet treat regret.
It takes just three ingredients to make. Jell-O, whipped topping and strawberries. They go together to create a light and elegant dessert.
I make mine with sugar-free Jell-O and light whipped topping for a low calorie, sweet-tooth satisfying, no-guilt, anytime treat.
1 package (3oz) Jello-o brand gelatin, any flavor
1 cup sliced fresh fruit plus extra for garnish
1 cup thawed Cool Whip whipped topping plus additional for topping
mint leaved (optional)
Prepare gelatin according to package directions. Chill until slightly thickened. Set aside 1/3 cup. Add fruit to remaining gelatin; spoon into 4 to 5 glasses. Chill glasses at an angle until jello is set.
Meanwhile, fold whipped topping into measured (1/3 cup) gelatin. Spoon topping mixture into glasses of set jello. Chill. Garnish with additional whipped topping a few slices, fresh strawberries and fresh mint leaves.
