RASPBERRY VANILLA JELLO SALAD

Raspberry Vanilla Jello Salad is one of the easiest recipes you will ever make and it is perfect as a side dish or even dessert. This recipe only requires 4 ingredients and 5 minutes to make and then it is immediately ready to serve!

Raspberry Vanilla Jello Salad is simply amazing! I just recently found this recipe and LOVE it!  It only has 4 ingredients and it literally takes just 2 minutes to make. Not only that, but it can be eaten immediately after preparing (or saved for later!)…and it’s delicious too! As a matter of fact, the recipe tastes wonderful minutes after making it, but I actually prefer to eat this the next day because the raspberry flavor gets to be a bit stronger and mixed in with the rest of the salad better.

What berries can you use in our JELLO SALAD?

My family loves raspberries the best in this recipe, but I have also tried it with mixed berries, blackberries, blueberries – one reader even said they tried it with peaches! I usually use frozen fruit because I keep quite a bit of it on hand, but you can definitely use fresh fruit as well. Another variation you can try is with the pudding. I usually use vanilla, but you can use cheesecake pudding and it is absolutely delicious too!

Where do you serve Jello Salad?

Raspberry Vanilla Jello Salad makes for a great side dish to take to a potluck, but is sweet enough that it could work as a dessert also. I have used this recipe on multiple occasions when I needed to whip something up quickly to take somewhere, and it has always been a HUGE hit with adults and kids alike. I love that this recipe is cool and refreshing in the summer, but also is a family favorite at Thanksgiving, Christmas and even Valentine’s Day – it works for pretty much any holiday! You’ll love having this convenient and mouthwatering recipe in your collection!

Raspberry Vanilla Jello Salad

  • 1 box (5.1 oz) instant vanilla pudding
  • 32 oz. container vanilla yogurt
  • 8 oz. container Cool Whip (thawed)
  • 1 pkg. frozen raspberries
  1. In a large bowl, combine the pudding mix and the vanilla yogurt, stirring until well mixed.
  2. Fold Cool Whip into the mixture. (You can use a spatula or a whisk!)
  3. Lastly, fold in the raspberries.  I had set mine out for about 10 minutes before making the salad, but you can put them in frozen and they will thaw very quickly so you can serve the salad right after mixing.
  4. If you don’t serve the salad immediately, the raspberries will thaw more and the juices will add a raspberry flavor to the entire mixture – I like it both ways!

    • Jani, I make as a dessert and serve it over pound cake or angel’s food! Tonight I made it with frozen peaches for a side. It’s so versatile!

  1. We made this and it was delicious! I used lite cool whip and lowfat yogurt. It makes a good size amount, would be great to bring to a potluck. This is better I think after it sits and the berries thaw out.

    • There isn't regular Jello (gelatin), but a lot of "Jello" recipes are ones that include pudding, probably since Jello is the brand that makes most instant pudding mixes?

  2. I have a recipe that uses cheesecake flavored pudding and also mixed berries instead of just raspberries…<br /> You can also use flavored jello instead of the pudding &amp; makes in whatever fruit matches your flavor jello (ie: orange jello / mandarin oranges)…

  3. Ooooh this is so good. I think I&#39;d like to try raspberries with Lemon pudding and lemon yogurt, bet that would be wonderful too! Can&#39;t wait to try it with flavored jello as Dana suggested. Yummm! I&#39;m taking it on a camping trip next week for sure!

  4. I doubled the recipe and took this to a potluck recently. I was expecting there to be some left over, but it was completely devoured. I am now getting ready for a camping trip and all four of my children begged me to get back online to get this recipe. Thank you so much for taking the time to share this fabulous recipe!

  5. I substituted sugar free cool whip and sugar free vanilla pudding with blueberries and a coconut-flour crust. It is delicious.

    • It would likely very drastically change both the flavor and the consistency. If you want to have the recipe serve more, I suggest doubling it.

  6. How many do you think this would feed? I’m having a dinner party with 6 adults and 9 children. Would doubling it be enough?

    • Depending on how many other dishes you have, I think you might not even need to double it! But yes, to be safe, I think doubling it will be plenty.

  7. I found this recipe when I searched dessert in a mold. Do you believe this has the consistency to be molded? Maybe if I froze for a short time? Thoughts please

    • I think the consistency of this is too soft to work in a mold. I have never tried to freeze it, so that might work, but I think it would have to be pretty frozen to hold any kind of shape. Let me know if you try it!

    • Absolutely! In fact, I almost like it better the next day because the raspberry flavor gets a little more intense and mixes in more with the yogurt/pudding mixture. It should last at least 2-3 days in the fridge and still taste wonderful!

  8. We absolutely love this jello salad at our house – we make it all the time now and we get rave reviews every time we take it anywhere!

  9. My boyfriend’s mom made this at Thanksgiving, and I LOVED it! I call it ‘Jello, not Jello’ since there’s no jello in it. Gives it a fun name.
    I think blueberries in it would also be fantastic.
    I plan to make this for my Christmas work pot luck. It looks very festive too.

    • Yeah, it’s more Jello Pudding salad, but that title was super long, ha! I’m so glad you liked it! Yes, variations are a great idea!

  10. How many does this serve I am
    Needing to feed 26 people with this as a side dish so trying to decide how much I will need.

    • I would guess that if you doubled this recipe, you would have the perfect amount! If you have tons of other food and everyone will just be getting a small scoop, you might be able to get away with not doubling, but I usually tend to err on the side of having a bit too much rather than not enough! Even if you have leftovers, this salad stores in the fridge for several days afterwards so you can enjoy the leftovers!

  11. I think I see your berry amount in the Q&A segment , but would be helpful if you would specify the amount of berries in the actual recipe as I buy frozen berries in bulk from Amish stores.
