Jello is the go-to dessert for some people. I mean…why not? It’s quick, easy, low in fat and calories and a popular alternative to those heavy, rich desserts we all love. It truly follows its slogan because its so light on your stomach and on your waistline– there’s always room for Jello!
But lately, I’ve been getting tired of eating the same plain Jello recipes over and over. Jello does have a bad rep because of its use as a hospital food, but you can actually do so much more with it. Jello can be used in pies, molds, with fruit, in preserves and in a lot of fun ways kids will love. Since Jello is so simple to make, you can make a project out of it and make it with the kids. These are low-mess and low-fuss recipes that you’ll love!
We have just put together a collection of our favorite ten Jello recipes plus some Jello history. Despite what some of you may think, it didn’t all start with Bill Cosby. Here are three of our faves…for more you’ll have to check out our page on Our Top 10 Jello Recipes and More!
