7UP Lime Jello Salad

Jello Salads. Most people love them or hate them. Me? I LOVE them. I could literally eat them all day long and not get tired of them. This lime Jello salad is made with 7UP, cream cheese, Dream Whip and pineapple. A strange, but delicious combination!

Lime Jello Salad with Cream Cheese and Pineapple

Jello salads can be all different textures, but the cream cheese that melts into the hot Jello makes this one a little creamy. It has less of a gelatin texture and is softer. Creamier.

How do you make Jello with fruit?

Sometimes making fruit salads with Jello can be tricky because the juices from the fruit cause the Jello not to firm up. This recipe uses canned pineapple that you’ll drain the juice from. It firms up beautifully. Don’t try using fresh pineapple. It won’t firm up and will end up a watery mess.

Make Ahead Salad

Jello salads are great for holidays and family gatherings. And I like them most of all because you can make them in advance and let them sit in the fridge for a day or two before serving. Be sure they are covered with plastic wrap so the top doesn’t dry out.

Christmas Jello Salad

Wouldn’t this make a pretty addition to your Christmas dessert table? The green paired with the white whipped cream and red cherries almost looks like a “Grinch” Jello salad. The kids will love it!

Sugar Free Jello Salad

Looking to lower your sugar intake? Use sugar free Jello, diet 7up soda, light cream cheese and pineapple in juice (instead of syrup). Will those changes change the texture and flavor? Maybe a little, but if you are used to eating a sugar free diet, it will still be very sweet.

The color of this is amazing so I made it and my kids loved it. We didn’t even have a special occasion. I just made it to try it and we all thought it was delicious. Next time I’ll make it for a birthday or another event. Thanks for sharing such a family friendly recipe.
