Oh my stars!! Does anyone else remember that slogan? Please say that you do!! lol
As you might have guessed, today is Jello Day at Mrs. B's! This is my offering.
Being a 50's child, I've eaten Jello prepared in so many different ways, I can't remember all of the different recipes. And to tell you the truth, I don't fix it very much, myself.
But when I do, it is usually for a cookout, or family dinner, and everyone asks for it fixed like this:
There are two versions, one uses cream cheese (yum!), and the other, which is supposed to be a healthier version, but is also good, uses cottage cheese. And either one is SO simple!
1 Small box of Jello, your favorite flavor
1 Small container of Cool-Whip, thawed
1 Small package of Cream Cheese, OR 1 small container of cottage cheese
Your favorite fruit (yes, you can even use fruit cocktail, 2 cans, drained. Mandarin oranges are a good choice, along with some chunk pineapple)
If you are using the cream cheese version, soften it at room temperature, then pop it into your mixer, or use a hand mixer in a large bowl, and whip it until it is very soft.
Blend in the cool-whip.
Add the DRY jello powder, stirring until it is thoroughly mixed through.
Add your fruit last, folding it into the jello/cheese mixture. You can serve it immediately, but it is better to let it set up a bit in the refrigerator for a while.
If you are using the cottage cheese version, no need to get out the mixer. It is easily made by hand.
To cut calories and fat, you can use the low fat or fat free cottage cheese, and ditto for the cool-whip. It still will taste VERY good!
There's always room for Jello! (I watched entirely too much TV when I was growing up!)
