Rainbow Jello Parfaits are so festive and fun, especially for your kids on St. Patrick's Day! You only need two basic ingredients to make these...jello and yogurt!Rainbow Jello Parfaits are something I decided to experiment with this year – I usually don’t go all out for St. Patricks Day at my house, but I do try to do something fun for my kids. These layered Jello treats are so easy, and if you pick the right colors, it looks just like a rainbow!  You do have to give yourself a day to make them just to allow all of the layers to set, but each layer only takes a few minutes to make so it’s not as hard as it may seem!

RAINBOW JELLO PARFAITS

  • 6 small boxes Jello (3 oz)  – Use whatever flavors you want as long as you have purple, blue, green, yellow, orange and red!
  • 3 cups vanilla yogurt (I used Greek yogurt just to add some more protein and feel a little bit healthier but you can use regular yogurt)
  1. [I used 5 oz parfait dishes and made 10 parfaits. The smaller the dish, the shorter the set time for each layer!]  For each layer, boil 1 cup of water (I do this in the microwave) and then add a box of Jello.
  2. Stir until the Jello is totally dissolved and then pour half of the mixture into a different dish. Add 1/2 cup of yogurt to half of the Jello mixture and stir until well combined.
  3. Pour the yogurt/Jello mixture into your dishes and then refrigerate until set.
  4. Add 3 Tbsp water to the other half of the Jello and set aside. As soon as the yogurt layer is set, you can pour the reserved Jello on top.
  5. Keep repeating until you have used up all of the Jello!

*If you are doing a rainbow, you will want to remember that you need to have room for 12 layers, so try to pour them accordingly. If you use dishes that are smaller on the bottom than the top, you may need to use less Jello on the bottom layers  – I just poured any extra Jello into an additional bowl and let my kids have it as an extra snack!
