This is a gelatin dessert that is good and a staple on our holiday table. It isn't Christmas without it! Kids and adults alike will keep coming back for more.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix 1 large box of strawberry-banana jello according to package directions. Let set in the icebox until almost set (jelled), but not quite (about 2 hours).
  2. Drain can of mixed fruit and add to your jello. Now, peel and slice your banana in your jello and mix.
  3. Add about 3/4 container of Cool Whip to your jello and fold.
  4. Return jello mixture to your icebox and let it finish setting up.
  5. If you mess up and your jello sets up all the way, just microwave for about 1 minute or leave at room temperature until it begins to soften and then add your mixed fruit, etc. You cannot mess this up!

I made this for a church function and got rave reviews. I used canned pineapple in place of the mixed fruit in one batch. I didn't use the pecans or coconut.
