Red, White & Blue Jello

This dessert uses yogurt and is easy to make, whether you want a patriotic dessert or a rainbow of colors! Recipe by Laura Bashar of Family Spice



  1. Bring to boil:
    • 2 cup water
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, pour in the hot water and stir in:
    • 6 oz jello, blue
  3. Whisk until gelatin has completely dissolved.
  4. Fill a glass measuring cup up with:
    • 1/2 cup ice , crushed
  5. Add enough water to the ice to measure out 2 cups total, approximately
    • 1 1/2 cup water
  6. Stir the ice water into the blue gelatin and whisk until all of the ice has melted.
  7. Pour half of the blue gelatin into your serving bowl and refrigerate until soft-set, approximately 90 minutes. Jello surface should be firm when touched.
  8. Reserve the remaining blue gelatin at room temperature until the 90 minutes has passed.
  9. Using a hand mixer, mix into the reserved room temperature jello until fully incorporated with no lumps:
    • 2 TBS yogurt, plain
  10. Using a half-cup measuring cup, slowly drizzle the yogurt mixture onto the soft-set layer of clear blue gelatin. You do not want to pour the whole amount all at once as it could break the top layer and mix in with the rest of the jello.
  11. Continue drizzling the remainder amount of the yogurt jello and refrigerate for 90 more minutes, until soft set.
  12. After the 90 minutes have passed, repeat steps 1-11 with
    • 6 oz jello, red
    • 3 1/2 cup water
    • 1/2 cup ice
    • 2 TBS yogurt, plain
  13. Allow jello to completely set in the refrigerator, about 4 more hours.
  14. Right before serving, spread over the top layer of jello with:
    • 3 1/2 cup whipped cream
  15. Sprinkle over and around the whipped the cream layer with:
    • 6 oz blueberries
    • 8 oz strawberries , sliced
  16. Serve immediately.
