A sweet and fluffy Jello salad. The rice and pineapple add interesting texture. This is a great summer salad! The recipe is adapted from a local cookbook, contributed by a New Zealand foreign exchange student. Cook time is chill time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Dissolve Jello gelatin in boiling water; add pineapple juice and refrigerate 1 hour to cool. Also chill the condensed milk for 1 hour.
  2. Beat the condensed milk till thick (I use my kitchenaid mixer on high for 5 minutes.).
  3. Beat Jello till light and fluffy (about 3 minutes with a mixer), then add condensed milk.
  4. Fold in rice and well drained pineapple. Chill at least 1 hour.

Followed recipe exactly and got a very different jello salad. Really nice and so different. Sort of a cross between rice pudding and lime jello, but with a custardy twist. I don't have small children, but I bet they would love this. Thanks for sharing.

This is very creamy and fluffy and a change from Jello's with Cool Whip. It has a custardy texture that is delightful. This is my first try at a Jello with rice and I specifically used Minute Rice, thinking it would be nice and fluffy, but my rice tasted hard in the Jello. I am wondering if a certain type (like medium grain) would be better, like used in rice pudding or maybe I messed up on the Minute Rice. Next time I will try a different rice and make sure that the rice is especially soft before adding. Roxygirl
