Cool, Creamy & Colorful: Rainbow Jell-O

A festive holiday side dish. Gorgeous and colorful cool and creamy layers of jell-o. Normally I don’t think of making jell-o, but this is a fun and simple recipe to prepare recipe that lends itself well to a heavy holiday meal.

Rainbow Jell-O


1 (6-ounce) package orange jell-o
1 (6-ounce) package lemon jell-o
1 (6-ounce) package lime jell-o
1 (6-ounce) package cherry jell-o
4 cups (2-pints) sour cream
8 cups boiling water

Place orange jell-o in medium glass bowl. Add 2 cups boiling water; stir until dissolved. Reserve 1/2 of liquefied jell-o. To remaining half, add 1 cup sour cream; stir until well blended. Pour sour cream mixture into 9×13-inch glass dish; refrigerate, on a level shelf, until set. When firm, pour reserved orange jell-o over creamy layer; refrigerate until firm. Repeat with remaining colors of jell-o, starting each with a creamy layer and ending with a clear layer. Cut into squares to serve.

TIP: Keep reserved jell-o at room temperature while waiting for creamy layer to set.

NOTE: Any colors/flavors of jell-o may be used, have fun and make up your own rainbow; Pastel colors for Easter, jewel tones for Fall Holidays, all red for Valentine’s Day, greens for St. Patrick’s Day…etc. Additionally, this recipe may be prepared in a 12-cup jell-o mold, or non-stick bundt pan; unmold to reveal the layers before serving.
