Blueberry Jello Dessert – A no-bake dessert that’s practical and super easy to make. You can even suit the jello dessert flavor to your taste and make it just before your Sunday lunch. It’s easily a family favorite!
A few weeks a go I got throat sick. Therefore the only thing I was able to swallow was jelly! Not even water!
It felt smooth and fresh, which relieved the pain. So, it got me thinking… What about that old dessert I used to do with Jello? I should share it on the blog. And, here we are.
This dessert is perfect for a kids party or when you need a no stress dessert and you’re out of ideas. Also, it only takes 3 ingredients plus water and you can feed a crowd. 😎
First of all, this jello dessert is very customizable. Change jello flavor, add fruit, combine two flavors, make your own homemade gelatin, add aroma to your cream and so on. As you see, you can make it very personalized. I think this dessert goes best with acidic fruits. But honestly, we love it either way. Also, you can make this one with store bought jelly.
Have you seen my last recipe Chocolate & Coconut Moist Cake? It is an old recipe of mine too, but equally delicious and fresh! Yes, even being a cake. =D
- 400 ml (1 + ¼ cup) cream
- 1 can (395 g) condensed milk
- 5 sheets (14 g sheets/ 1 tbsp powder) gelatin
- 700 ml blueberry gelatin
- 125 g blueberries (optional)
- coconut shredded q.b. (optional)
- Make blueberry gelatin according to the instructions in the package and allow it to cool to room temperature, for approximately 1 hour.
- Fill a small bowl with water and add some ice cubes then submerge the gelatin sheets for 15 minutes. If using powder gelatin, you should hydrate it with 5 tablespoons of lukewarm water (just before adding it).
- Whip up the cream to soft peaks, then add condensed milk and beat at low speed.
- Drain gelatin sheets and melt in microwave for 10 seconds or in a double boiler. Add to the condensed milk cream and beat it at low power.
- In a glass baking tray with 16x25x6 cm (6x10x2^1/4 inches) pour half of condensed milk cream and refrigerate until set. I did 5 minutes in fridge and 10 in the freezer.
- Take it out, carefully pour gelatin over the cream. I used a small plate upside down to help. Refrigerate until set or 10 minutes + 10 minutes in the freezer.
- Stir a little bit the condensed milk cream to bring it again to a creamy texture and pour the remaining over jelly. Sprinkle with shredded coconut (optional).
- Refrigerate until set or at least for one hour.
