It is time for picnics and BBQ's with the family! Memorial Day and 4th of July are coming up and it is time to start thinking about all the red, white and blue. Food, celebration and a time of remembrance helps make summertime full of memories.
This Red White and Blue Jello salad has three ingredients and is so easy to make. You can make a large bowl of this salad or put it in individual cups. After we eat all the delicious food such as Best Baked Beans and all of the patriotic foods such as this Jello salad, the celebrations will begin!
- Red Jello - any flavor will work. For this one, I used cherry. The cherry flavor will have a darker red color to it.
- Whipped cream - I used Cool Whip
- Blueberries - Fresh or frozen
How to make Red White and Blue Jello Salad
First, simply mix up the Jello according to the package directions. Typically, it is 2 cups of boiling water, stir until the Jello has dissolved. Then stir in the 2 cups of cold water.
The key is let the Jello set up completely before you mix in the other ingredients, so for that reason you will need to plan ahead a little. Not much, but 6 hours up to overnight would be good.
After the Jello has hardened, now it is time to mix in the whipped cream.
Simply add in the whipped cream to the Jello and on low (or with a whisk) start blending. The Jello and whipped cream will blend together so it will be a combination of red and white.
Hand mixer verses by hand
A hand mixer isn't completely necessary, but it really mixes the Jello and whipped cream together the best.
If you stir it by hand, make sure to use a whisk. You will want to break the Jello up into little pieces as well as incorporate the whipped cream in well.
Adding in the blueberries
The blueberries can be added into the Jello/whipped cream mixture or placed on top of the Jello for more of a decoration.
Traveling with the Jello
If you want to take these Jello cups with you to a picnic or gathering, you can cover the Jello salad and place it in a cooler. The Jello won't go bad being left out for a time, but it will get runny and unappealing.
It is best to keep it cool.
Keep the leftovers wrapped in the refrigerator.
This super easy and delicious Red, White and Blue Jello Salad is the perfect addition to your patriotic menu. The kids will love it and so will the adults. Only takes a few minutes of your time to put together too!
