Raspberry jello fluff just like Mom always made for Sunday dinner when I was a kid and now my kids love it too! so incredibly yummy!
Jello always makes me think of my childhood, but a lot of you may think of the hospital. I’ve been in the hospital quite a bit thanks to Hyperemesis but I’ve never seen jello on the menu. Maybe it was 20 years ago, but either way I loved it as a kid and I don’t have any issues with it at all. In fact, this raspberry jello fluff (I totally made that name up) was one of my favorites for Sunday dinner.
Mom either made regular jello, jello with cool whip, strawberry banana or raspberry fluff or occasionally jello with fruit in it. No matter the kind it ALWAYS was on our Sunday table. We ate right after church no matter what time church was, 9, 11, or 1. Oh how I loved 1 pm church as a teen. Now I prefer 9 am as a mother, but I still love my jello like a kid.
This jello is made with milk and blended fruit so it ends up all fluffy. It’s quite wonderful and you don’t have to add fresh whipped cream, but why the heck not? And next time I promise to clean up the glasses but I was teaching the girls how to make this so I wanted them to feel proud, not that it wasn’t perfect. That’s what’s important.
