Jello salads may be considered old fashioned but you can't beat a creamy strawberry or raspberry jello salad at a potluck or barbecue!  A fluffy side with fresh berries and whipped cream is always a crowd pleaser!


Units Scale
  • 1 (3 oz) pkg. Strawberry or Raspberry Jello
  • 1 (3 oz) pkg. Cook and Serve Vanilla Pudding
  • 2 cups Water
  • 1 (8 oz) container Cool Whip
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped Strawberries (or 2 cups Raspberries) (*see note at end)


  1. Combine the jello and pudding mixes in a pot with the water.
  2. Whisk together and bring to a boil over med-high heat. Boil for 1 minute.
  3. Remove from heat and pour into a glass bowl. Cover with plastic wrap or a lid and refrigerate until cool (about an hour).
  4. To speed the cooling you can place the bowl over a container of ice.
  5. Dump the now chilled jello into a mixing bowl and beat until it is smooth and there are not any lumps.
  6. Beat in the cool whip.
  7. Fold in the berries.
  8. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until ready to serve.


  • Strawberries or raspberries may be fresh or frozen. If using frozen berries thaw and drain before using.
  • 2 Cups Fresh Whipped Cream may be substituted for the cool whip.
  • Do not substitute instant pudding for the cook and serve pudding mix.
