Strawberry Cloud Jello Salad Recipe

This easy Strawberry Jello Salad Recipe is perfect for summer barbeques and parties! It is a light and refreshing summer dessert with a delicious strawberry flavor.

strawberry cloud jello salad recipeI was asked by a friend to bring a Strawberry Jello Salad to her house last Saturday night.  She gave me the recipe (which I wrote on the back of a some random piece of paper in my purse, outside the post office) over the phone and I promptly lost it!  So, at the grocery store I called and got the ingredients from her again, thinking I had just left the recipe at home.  So, this is what I came up with and I think it was pretty close to what I was supposed to make.

Cut up a 16 oz package of fresh or frozen strawberries and set them aside.

Put into a pan:
6 oz package Strawberry Jello
6 oz package Cook ‘n Serve Vanilla Pudding
2 1/2 cups water

Mix together.  At this point the mixture is opaque.

Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly and boil for 2-3 minutes until mixture becomes more translucent.

Pour into a heat proof bowl.  Stir to allow mixture to cool a bit and add the cut up strawberries.  Continue to stir until the mixture thickens and cools more.

Add a 16 oz container of Cool Whip.

Put the jello salad into the fridge to chill and thicken.

To serve, put the Strawberry Cloud Jello Salad into cups and top with additional Cool Whip and a strawberry slice.

    I have tried this strawberry cloud salad recipe; it is delicious. I have also tried changing the ingredients two different times for a variety.

    One time is used orange jello with crushed pineapple.
    Another time I used pineapple jello with mandarin oranges.
    Good refreshing summer time treats!
    All VERY Good. :)

    I’d like to make this for monthly bunco but don’t know how many this recipe makes. Anyone got an answer?

      Hi Peggy,
      Thanks for stopping by! Since it is a salad, it really depends on your serving size. It will make 16 – 4 oz (1/2 cup) servings. I hope your bunco group enjoys it!

    Can this be lightened up with sugar free jello, fat free pudding & light cool whip? Also, could different berries be used? This sounds yummy!

    This looks and sounds delicious and so refreshing. I would make a couple of changes using sugar free jello and instead of using cool whip, using plain yogurt and some splenda if needed. I’m a diabetic and often have plain yogurt with sugar free jelly or sugar free jello and it’s delicious. I will be making this with those few changes. Thanks for the recipe.
