3 Tier Fruit Jello

Today I want to share one of my all time favorite Jello recipes! The recipe is my sister's creation - I may be bias when I say this - but it is absolutely delicious!

One recipe of this jello is best to make in a trifle bowl such as this.

This delicious recipe consists of 3 layers of Jello;

Layer One (Bottom)
4-serving ounce (small box) Strawberry Jello
1 cup Boiling Water
Frozen Sliced Strawberry or Pomegranate

Layer Two (Middle)
4-serving ounce (small box) Orange Jello
1 cup Boiling Water
8oz Cream Cheese room temp
2 cans (11oz) Mandarin Orange

Layer Three (Top)
4-serving ounce (small box) Island Pineapple Jello
1 cup Boiling Water
1 can Crushed Pineapple


  1. For the first layer add boiling water to gelatin mix and stir until dissolved.
  2. Then add the sliced strawberry or pomegranate to the mixture and stir.
  3. Slowly pour the mixture in the trifle bowl. I generally use a ladle to transfer the mixture. 
  4. Place the jello in the fridge and refrigerate until firm. [I generally allow an hour for each layer to refrigerate before starting the next layer.] 
  5. For the second layer add boiling water to gelatin mix and stir until dissolved. 
  6. Add cream cheese to mixture and use a whisk to dissolve the cream cheese completely. Once dissolved add the mandarin oranges.
  7. Transfer the second layer mixture, using a ladle, to the trifle bowl and refrigerate until firm.
  8. For the third layer add boiling water to gelatin mix and stir until dissolved.
  9. Add the crushed pineapples to the mixture and stir.  
  10. Transfer the final layer to the trifle bowl. Let the jello refrigerate for 2-3 hours or until completely firm.
  11. Garnish with Reddi-Whip and blackberries. 

You can double the recipe and will be able to make it in a dessert stand lid of this size:

This recipe is super easy to make and is always a hit at parties! Enjoy!
