My sister-in-law gave me this easy to make, delicious recipe for this jello/ice-cream dessert. It's almost like a sherbet...sooo delicious on a summer afternoon!
- Boil 2 cups hot water.
- Add to all of the jello powder combined.
- Mix well till dissolved.
- Add one cup cold water.
- Mix well.
- Put in fridge until the jello is partially set.
- Then take it out of the fridge, add one cup of vanilla ice-cream and beat until well blended.
- Set in fridge overnight.
What a great idea! The first time I halved the recipe, using mandarin orange jello and vanilla frozen yogurt (I only had a drop left, but wanted to try this). After loving the results, I made a batch with the same orange flavoured jello and chocolate frozen yogurt - if you like chocolate and oranges, this is heavenly. Next I think I'll layer two flavours in a loaf pan to slice and serve with fresh fruit. So many possibilities with this one. Thanks Ranikabani!
I made following your directions exactly. I would have liked to know the approximate time for partially set jello. I think mine set up too much, and the result was not as smooth as I would have liked. It does make a pretty dessert, and it is very refreshing on a hot summer day. It would be nice served with a garnish of fanned strawberries and a mint sprig.
