Strawberry Jello Parfait - From Val's Kitchen

I like Jello. I’ve used it in molds to make shapes and the kids love it. Many people don’t think of it as a pretty food, but it really can be. This simple parfait requires only three things and a little extra time to turn it into a lovely dessert. Here’s how to make it.

Strawberry Jello Parfait


1 package (3oz) Strawberry Jello.

1 cup sliced fresh strawberries (optional)

1 cup thawed Cool Whip whipped topping


Prepare Jello according to package directions.

Set aside 1/3 cup.

Add fruit to remaining Jello.

Spoon into 4 to 5 dessert or wine glasses.

Chill glasses at an angle until jello is set (overnight is best)

Fold whipped topping into remaining (1/3 cup) jello.

Refrigerate until ready to use.

Spoon topping mixture into glasses of set jello.

Top with a dollop of Cool Whip


Garnish with fresh strawberries.

I’m just not into parfaits big times, perhaps because I prefer real whip cream.

Not a fan of jello or parfaits, but my kids would love this!

How pretty this is! Perfect for Valentine’s day. I’m always on the lookout for things like this. I have a Granddaughter with a allergy to dairy products. Crazy that cool whip doesn’t contain dairy, isn’t it?
