I grew up on this! A tasty, fruity Jello treat. This was always in my Nana's refrigerator, no matter what time of the year. Great for potlucks, dessert for shower or picnics or even a kid-friendly snack. Prep time does not include chilling time.; no cooking neccessary except the boiling of 1 cup water.

  1. In a bowl, combine jello crystals and boiling water.
  2. In another bowl, combine strawberries, pineapple and bananas, reserve 1/2 for topping.

Pretty good. Like John I used sugar free jello and fat free sour cream. I didn't use the full amount of sour cream either, but it was more like 3/4. One bite from the container out the of the fridge was not very promising. But when I spooned some into a bowl and it got more mush like it was pretty good. The very sweet jello is off-set by the tang of the sour cream. Thanks!

Very good. I think the Jello should be .6 oz not 6 oz the small box of jello is .3 oz. I used two small boxes of sugerless jello and no-fat sour cream. I also used some mixed fruit. The jello was a little hard it might need some more water as the jello box wants 2 cups of water per box. I only needed half the sour cream.
