Holiday Fruit Salad
~ Layered With Yogurt ~

A jellied holiday fruit salad that's easy to make and delicious.

Jello Fruit Salad
Holiday Fruit Salad


This jello fruit salad was a hit with the family.  I reduced the size of the recipe when I made it.  At least I reduced the amount of jello....  I only used 1 package of jello but didn't reduce the amount of fruit by nearly enough.  Oops!  The end result was heavy on the fruit but there were no complaints.  :)

I substituted yogurt cheese for cream cheese.  The sour cream I used was on the thin side which made it difficult to serve the slices without the layer of sour cream/yogurt mixture running.  To avoid this use a thick sour cream or Greek yogurt in the filling.

Serves 12


  • 3 packages (3 ounces or 85 grams each) strawberry flavor gelatin
  • 3 cups boiling water
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1 package frozen strawberries
  • 1 can (16 ounces or 454 grams) crushed pineapple in juice
  • 1 package (8 ounces or 227 grams) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup dairy sour cream or plain yoghurt ( I used ½ cup sour cream plus ½ cup yoghurt)
  • ¼ cup sugar (I used honey)
  • crisp lettuce leaves


In large bowl, dissolve gelatin in boiling water.  Slice bananas into gelatin mixture.  Add frozen strawberries and undrained pineapple.  Pour half the mixture into 13x9-inch (33x23-centimetres) pan.  Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm.  In mixer bowl, beat cream cheese with sour cream and sugar; spread over chilled layer.  Gently spoon remaining gelatin mixture on top.  Refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours.  Cut into squares; serve on lettuce-lined salad plates.  Garnish with additional pineapple, if desired.
