Strawberries & Cream Jello

Strawberries and cream are such a treat, but something better than that is having a delicious Jell-O dessert that tastes just as dreamy. It’s super simple too, the perfect spring dessert to prepare for the next party, picnic, gathering, or cookout. 

Back when I was a child, one of my great aunts would always make this recipe. I couldn’t wait until dessert time at family gatherings because I knew she would always make it. One day my mom asked for the recipe, and she gave it to her. For Latino families, this is kind of a big deal because we are known for not wanting to share our secret recipes. I’m sure she left out some major ingredient though because it doesn’t quite taste the same. However, through the years, I’ve come to find my mom’s recipe is far better than the original now. We aren’t overly secretive, so we are happy to share this family recipe with all of you.

What You’ll Need

  • Fresh strawberries 1lb or 16oz
  • Sour Cream 16 oz
  • 2 Jello-O Strawberry flavor
  • Sweetened Condensed Milk 375g
  • 2 Large jello molds
  • Blender
  • Whisk

Prepare the Jell-O by adding 4 cups of boiling water to the two gelatin mixes. Stir until it dissolves and then add 2 more cups of water and mix. Allow the mix to cool down.

Place the strawberries, condensed milk, and sour cream in a blender, blend until it is smooth.

Once the Jell-O is cooled you will incorporate and mix in the ingredients from the blender into the jello. Using a whisk, mix the ingredients until it is well combined.

Then pour the gelatin into the molds of your choice. It should be enough for two containers.

The end result is a creamy, light and sweet strawberry dessert like no other!
