Raspberry Rave is the perfect name for this dessert! I love raspberries and this dessert is fantastic! It looked so good after I put it together that I simply had to taste it. To be truthful, I simply couldn't stop! I can't wait for it to chill so I can taste it cold! I couldn't get quite 2 cups of juice from the fruit, so I added 1/4 pineapple juice to make the full 2 cups. Great work, Inez! This one is definitely a keeper! Truly Scrumptious!
Individual raspberries are not all that exciting. Mash or puree them and they come alive. Add pineapple, raspberry jello and sour cream you have a flavor explosion! I used sugar free jello and topped it with light Cool Whip. You could also use light sour cream if you want to reduce the fat content. So addictive! I think next, I might try half the recipe, poured into a chocolate cookie crumb crust.
Oh boy! Was intense said? This is great! I made it with sugar free raspberry jello and low fat sour cream, and it turned out fantastic. I only made half of the recipe and even that made quite a bit. This is a wonderful light dessert. I bet it would be good with strawberries or any kind of berry. This recipe was one of my Thanksgiving recipes this year, and will be for years to come! Thanks Inez.
Made this today and it was wonderful!! I was wondering if using lowfat sour cream makes a difference in the "setting time". It took about 6 hours, but it did set. Think next time I might try it with strawberries, since we love those too. Hummmm....I wonder if blueberries would work....... Thanks for an easy, yummy dessert.
My famiy LOVES raspberries. This was sooooo incredible. You are right, the raspberry flavor is intense. Wonderful recipe and I will definitely make this again. Thanks Inez!!
Excellent! My husband who doesn't even like jello-type desserts looked at me and said "this is good," then went for his second helping!
I too lightened this one up. Sugar free jello & fat free sour cream. I couldn't find raspberries in syrup; so I thawed 2-12 ounce bags of raspberries then added 1 cup of sugar to "syrup" them. It was great. I like the graham cracker crust idea, too.
I am not a big Jell-O fan unless there is more other stuff than Jello. Even then I'm wary. I also had never had sour cream in Jell-O either. This is now my favorite Jell-O recipe. Probably because it doesn't taste like Jell-O and it's not overly sweet. It was full of fruit and I gave up on keeping the raspberries whole, I smushed them to get the juice then whisked everything together. Lots of flavor, no Jell-Oey taste and it was creamy. Light and great for a dessert with a heavier meal. Thank you.
Just made this tonight, and even if it doesn't "set", I'll slurp it up!!! It tastes sooo good! Also couldn't find raspberries in syrup, so I added suger (about a cup) and I had exactly 2 cups of juice. This one I will make again. And again. Thanks!
Inez, I kept this recipe aside to try out this summer and boy, was I glad I did. I reached into my deep freezer and pulled out Blackberries picked the summer before and was delighted with the results. Keep the recipes comming!
