Raspberry-Banana Gelatin Dessert: Pink Ribbon Recipe

Raspberry-Banana Gelatin Dessert: Pink Ribbon Recipe

Hi everybody :) 

The mixing of ice cream with jello, is what caught my attention in this recipe. I wondered how it would taste, so I had to try it out.  

This recipe may be a good choice for cancer patients because it's great for nausea, mouth sores, and diarrhea, three of the most common side effects of cancer treatments.  During times of nausea, gelatin can help settle the stomach. Eating crackers and dry toast can help combat nausea in the morning and drinking plenty of fluids can be a big help also.


Raspberry-Banana Gelatin Dessert  adapted Betty Crocker Living with Cancer Cookbook

Prep Time: 10 Minutes   |   Start to Finish: 3 Hours 40 Minutes     8 servings

1 box 8-serving size) raspberry-flavored gelatin (I used 2 {4-serving size boxes} 3 oz. each)
2 cups boiling water
1 pint (2 cups) vanilla ice cream
1 can (20 oz) crushed pineapple in juice, drained (I use 1 15 1/4 oz. can)
2 medium bananas, thinly sliced

1. Place gelatin in medium bowl. Add boiling water, stir until gelatin is dissolved. Stir in ice cream. 

Refrigerate about 30 minutes or until partially set.
Spray 2-quart mold with cooking spray. Stir pineapple and bananas into gelatin. 

Spoon into mold. Cover; refrigerate at least 3 hours until firm. 

Unmold gelatin onto serving plate.

What I Did and/or Think:
I followed the recipe as stated. I divided the jello into 2 mini trifle dishes and a small heart-shape mold because I didn't have a  2 quart mold. 

The ice cream gave the jello a creamy texture.

The Taste: I LOVE IT! I can't wait to try it out with different flavors of jellos ice creams, or  fruits! This is another Great REPEAT!


ENJOY! Come again...
