Rainbow Jell-O Treat!


I love fun, cool treats in the summer time. This one takes a little time, but it tastes so good and looks great … especially with a big dollop of whipped cream on top! My kids love to help pour, mix and measure while we make this.

Rainbow Jell-O Treat

  • 1 3oz. box of Jell-O (for each flavor) … strawberry, orange, lemon, lime, blueberry & grape
  • 2 cups vanilla yogurt
    1. Dissolve grape Jell-O (or any flavor first) in 1 cup boiling water (microwave for 2-3 minutes). Mix well.
    2. Divide equally in 2 small bowls.
    3. In one bowl, add 1/3 cup yogurt. Mix well with a wire whisk.
    4. Pour into a clear, glass 9x13 dish & chill.
    5. Add 3 Tbls. water to the other bowl, stir, and let sit outside of the fridge while the other layer gets firm.
    6. When firm, add the clear layer & chill.
    7. Repeat with all other flavors.

I’m trying to decide how to do this for a 4th of July dessert

I would do a few layers of red and white and a layer of blueberry on top. But how would you do the white layers. Does Jell-O come in a plain flavor?! Or maybe I’ll just do strawberry and blueberry layers with a big scoop of whipped cream on top for the white. Hmmmm. In love I’ll have to go check out the Jell-O aisle next time I’m at the store. Let me know if you have any ideas!


  1. Lindsy, check out

  2. Katie, that is PERFECT! Thank you for the link!

  3. This is so cool looking! What fun!

  4. That looks so cool! I'll have to keep it in mind as a special treat this summer for my kids!

    I'm doing "Summer School" with my kids, I'd love it if you stopped by and even linked up!

  5. I know this is old but maybe you'll check your comments and see this:

    Jello does come in a plain flavor. It's called "gelitin" and it's usually on the top shelf in the jello section. I don't know how you can make it white per se. It's just going to make it clear and sort of yellowish.

    I just found your blog tonight and have gotten lots to pin on Pinterest. I'm gearing up for my second year of preschool with my three little ones (currently 4, 3, and 2). I blog our learning adventures-

    1. I remember my mom using regular gelatin in recipes! I will have to try that. Thank you! I hopped over to your blog and you are doing a lot with those cute kids of yours! I pinned your apple pie salt box and different "flavors". Such a great idea! Thanks!


I love your comments! Feel free to leave a link if you've done any of these activities with your kids. I'd love to visit your blog!
