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!


  1. Boil 2 cups hot water.
  2. Add to all of the jello powder combined.
  3. Mix well till dissolved.
  4. Add one cup cold water.
  5. Mix well.
  6. Put in fridge until the jello is partially set.
  7. Then take it out of the fridge, add one cup of vanilla ice-cream and beat until well blended.
  8. 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.
