  • 1 6-ounce package Strawberry Jello not sugar free
  • 2 cups hot water
  • 1 ¾ cups cold water
  • 1 8-ounce package whipped topping like Cool Whip, thawed
  • 1 pound frozen strawberries, sliced or fresh


  • In a large casserole dish, mix the Jello with hot water and cold water until completely dissolved
    mix strawberry jello gelatin with hot and cold water
  • Refrigerate for about 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until Jello starts to thicken. It will still be runny
    mix jello with whisk
  • Use a whisk or electric mixer to mix Jello until foamy and thick.
    whisk jello until foamy
  • Stir in whipped topping, then gently add strawberries, and refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm and ready to serve.



Make sure you are using the large 6-ounce size of regular Jello -- not sugar free, which comes in different sizes.
Use frozen berries without sauce or sugar in this recipe, or save money, and make your own frozen strawberries by slicing fresh strawberries, transferring to a large zip-top freezer bag and placing in freezer until frozen!
There is no cooking involved in this recipe, but there are refrigeration times, so it takes about 3 to 4 hours for it to be ready to eat.
Fresh strawberries can be used, but keep them refrigerated until ready to use
