Frozen Creamy Lime Jello

Take your Jello to a whole new level with this Frozen Creamy Lime Jello recipe! It makes the perfect cold treat on a hot day. You can also use other flavors of Jello in this recipe.

If you haven’t noticed by now, we love our Jello recipes!

Growing up, we usually had jello as a SIDE DISH for Sunday dinner – and it was my favorite! Our Strawberry Fluff Jello Salad was the dish I looked forward to the most (have you tried it?! There is a reason why it’s our most popular Jello salad)!

What is jello?

I know that there are some of you who might not know what jello is . . . in Utah, it’s something we are known for serving at parties, potlucks, and dinners. I think we are considered the Jello capital of the world . . . that’s quite the claim to fame! 😉

There was even a couple Green Jello Olympic pins made to celebrate our love of Jello here in Utah!

So the term “jello” is actually a brand name owned by Kraft foods. That term is now used broadly to market all kinds of desserts and snacks.

Most people use the word “jello” when referring to gelatin-based desserts that are bright colors with various flavors (strawberry, orange, lime, etc).

How to make frozen creamy jello

  • Bring pineapple and sugar to a boil on the stove top
  • Remove from heat and mix in box of Jello (I used lime, but orange is also delicious
  • Add whipped cream and sour cream to Jello mixture
  • Pour it into a loaf pan and stick it in the freezer overnight
  • Cut into slices and serve!

You could also pour the mixture into popsicle molds and it would make the most delicious creamy popsicles!

Side dish or dessert?

When we were growing up, my mom would always serve our Jello dish as a side dish . . . but as I grew up, I came to realize that it’s usually a dessert for most people.

I personally feel that you could serve it as either and people will be happy with either option. 🙂

Can you freeze jello to help it set?

When making jello, you just need to refrigerate it to help it set up. But if you are in a hurry, you could stick it in the freezer to make it set up even faster.

However, it’s not recommended that you freeze jello because it will change the consistency drastically. The flavor stays the same, but it’s a strange consistency. Trust me on this one!

BUT – this jello recipe is MADE for the freezer! The whipped cream added gives it such a creamy texture – it’s almost like a smooth ice cream.

    I'm loving it! Jell-O products are my favorite thing when I want to make a Sweet Dessert or as a salad side with a dinner I live here in Florida. - originally from Illinois. . Year's ago In the local news paper, someone requested a Christmas Jell-O layered Salad (3 flavored layers) I wrote back and gave them the recipe for Christmas: I also added on different Holidays -(like Easter, Halloween, Thanksgiving, 4th of July, and St. Patrick's day ) - changing the colors and flavor's for each Holiday.
