Pin It I love rainbows. I truly do!! Every time I see a rainbow, it just makes my day. And so many times in my life, when I had a hard decision to make or just needed a boost of happiness, I would see a rainbow. So one of my favorite desserts is a rainbow jell-o (obviously!!). There are lots of variations online on how to make it, using whipped cream, sour cream, sweetened condensed milk. I prefer to make it with plain yogurt ( just a little healthier). And you can use normal or sugar-free jell-o. I just made some for my friend for her Birthday last week. It is very easy to make, just time-consuming (you'll have to wait for every layer to set.)
You will need:
Transparent plastic cups ( I used the ones from Walmart, I needed 6)
1 pt. plain yogurt
1 3oz package black cherry jell-o ( I didn't use it, just didn't have it in my store)
1 3oz package blue berry jell-o
1 3oz. lime jell-o
1 3oz. lemon jell-o
1 3oz. orange jell-o
1 3 oz. strawberry jell-o ( I used cherry, what I had on hand)
Put your cups into a 9x13 form for stability and to make it easier to move around. Mine fits 6 cups.
Begin with black cherry and follow the same instructions for each flavor in order given. Dissolve black cherry jell-o in 1 cup of boiling water. Divide in half. To 1 half, add 4 TBSP (without a top) of plain yogurt.Whisk really well. Pour this mixture equally into cups and let set in a fridge. It takes about 25 min. After 25 min. are over, add 3 TBSP. of cold water to the other half and pour it over the first. Put back in a fridge for half an hour. Repeat with all 6 flavors. Be patient, let every layer set!!!
You can decorate your cups with whipped cream and sprinklers.
For a gift, I wrapped four cups ( there are 4 members in their family) with a plastic wrap, put a card in between and decorated with a bow.
You can also make your jell-o right in a 9x13 form (just spray it very lightly with cooking spray to let come out easily) or even use a bundt pan. Check out this beauty:
