READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by faith58

I had this recipe at a shower over 20 years ago and since then has been a must have at holiday's, graduation parties and get-togethers. I use a glass 9x13-inch dish and after it's done it's really pretty to look at and even better to eat.. It is Better if You use vanilla and not vanilla bean ice cream. Thanks for trying my ice cream recipe. :)

Concentrated Jello along with Ice Cream? This is far too sweet so, it should be served in small portions. Sugar-free Jell-O is still too sweet. I will make it with the ice cream with unsweetened unflavored gelatin and Kool Aid instead. Only the ice cream has the sweetness in it. Also, you have to be extremely careful not to get any mix splashed onto the sides of the glass as it will look smudged. Spoon off any foam before transferring the mix to the glasses as it will break loose and float to the top even after it is set. However, this can be hidden with whipped cream. If you do not whip it enough, jello will separate and form a level between the layers but this could be a plus as a change in texture. If you use glasses with opaque sides, the discovery of the layers will be a plus for presentation. The picture is my first attempt so it is a bit messy. Next time, I will use a baster to move the mix into the dessert glasses.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (3 ounce) package cherry Jell-O
  • 1 (3 ounce) package lemon Jell-O gelatin
  • 1 (3 ounce) package lime Jell-O gelatin
  • 1 (3 ounce) package orange Jell-O
  • 12 gallon vanilla ice cream, sliced into fourths

Directions

  1. Add 1 cup of boiling water to package of cherry Jello and stir.
  2. Add 1/4 of the vanilla ice cream and use a whisk to whip with the Jello.
  3. Let set in a clear 9x13-inch pan for 15 minutes or as Wife2uRick suggested waiting 15-30 minutes or until set.
  4. Then Add 1 cup of boiling water to package of lemon Jello and add 1/4 of the vanilla ice cream and use a whisk to whip with the Jello.
  5. Let set on top of the cherry layer for 15 minutes or until set.
  6. Then add 1 cup to the lime Jello and add 1/4 of the vanilla ice cream and whisk to whip with the Jello.
  7. Let set on top of lemon Jello for 15 minutes or until set.
  8. Then with the last box of Jello which is orange add 1 cup of boiling water and the last 1/4 vanilla ice cream and whisk together and put on top of lime Jello and let set.
  9. I usually do other things while I am making this and you can also use your favorite jello's but these together taste really good and I always am asked to bring it.
  10. Note: I usually cut my ice-cream in fourths and leave the ice-cream in the freezer until I use each 1/4th for the Jello.
  11. Jello can be stored in refrigerator when done. :).
