I remember being able to buy this type of dessert mix in the supermarket years ago. I don't know if it's still available, but if not, you can now make it from scratch! It is not vegan cause gelatin is not vegan!


  1. Pour boiling water into blender.
  2. Add gelatin.
  3. Cover and blend at low speed until gelatin is completely dissolved; about 30 seconds.
  4. Combine cold water and ice cubes to make 1 1/4 cups.
  5. Add to gelatin and stir until ice is partially melted.
  6. Then add whipped topping; Blend at high speed for 30 seconds.
  7. Pour into dessert glasses.
  8. Chill about 30 minutes.
  9. Dessert layers as it chills.
  10. Garnish with additional whipped topping, fresh fruit, and mint leaves if desired.
  11. **Foran added affect, tilt glasses slightly while chilling for angled layers.

This was a blast from the past! It has been years since I had this. Thanks so much for posting it. Follow the directions as written and you can't miss. I did substitute fresh sweetened whipped cream for the non-dairy whipped topping.

Awesome recipe! Made it with strawberry daiquiri jello mix and dream whip. Also just whipped it by hand and it turned out wonderful for a light summertime dessert!!

Definitely a blast form the past! I actually had better luck with it separating into it's individual layers when I whipped it by hand. I very well could have blended it toooo long with the blender and whipped the layers right out of it *LOL* Hard to get a photo of it , but that was the best one I could come up with! Glad this recipe was posted!! I have a "new" old dessert! :)
