Easy Recipe Thursday: Mom's Creamy Jell-O Salad

Sorry I've been gone for so long! I REALLY enjoyed my break and will finish posting about it soon.

Here's one of my favorite things that my mom-in-love makes. It is SO creamy and yummy. It is also delicious made sugar free. Enjoy!

Mom’s Creamy Jell-O

1 small pkg. Jell-O, any flavor (strawberry or peach is awesome!)
1 C boiling water
2 C (1 pint) vanilla ice cream (not vanilla bean)
1 C fruit, optional (do not use fresh pineapple or kiwi, or Jello will not set)
Cool Whip, optional

Stir Jell-O into boiling water until completely dissolved. Stir in ice cream until completely melted. Chill until set. (If desired, stir in fruit when partially set, about 30 minutes.) Top with Cool Whip, if desired.

This is also delicious made with sugar free Jell-O and ice cream. I use Edy’s sugar free vanilla.

Ooh, I almost forgot. If you want a zingier, tangier flavor, make it with sherbet or sorbet!
