Lime Simply Delicious

Lime Simply Delicious
Oh, it's been a bit warm outside!  O.K., it is July & totally expected!  Definitely the time of year to remember to drink more water than usual.  A beverage that's lemon or lime flavored also tastes so refreshing.  After drinking yet another glass of water yesterday, I remembered the package of Lime flavored gelatin in the pantry.  A half gallon of Vanilla ice cream was waiting in the freezer.  No, not to devour all at once- I only needed 1 Cup of the cold refreshing treat to whip up a batch of Lime Simply Delicious.  Literally whipping it with a whisk.

This easy to make dessert is definitely a family fave.

There are only 3 ingredients:

1 small pkg. of Lime flavored gelatin (3 ounces)
1 Cup boiling water
1 Cup Vanilla ice cream

  1.   Place 1 small pkg. Lime gelatin in mixing bowl.
  2.   Add 1 Cup boiling water. 
  3.   Whisk (or stir rapidly) to completely dissolve gelatin.
  4.   Add 1 Cup Vanilla ice cream.
  5.   Rapidly whisk (or stir) to dissolve ice cream.
  6.   Pour into 2 dishes.  (I use 2 coffee mugs.)
  7.   Refrigerate several hours.
  8.   Serve with a dollop of whipped cream.
Where are our spoons?
For our Family Get-Together in the summer, this is a yummy, quick & easy to prep dessert to include on the dessert table.  Orange flavored, Strawberry flavored & Lime flavored is enjoyed by all ages.  Pouring the liquid into plastic stackable containers works great.  Then, stacking & storing these desserts in the fridge is no problem.

Strawberry gelatin combined with Strawberry ice cream is oh so tasty!

It's quick & easy!  What flavor will you make?

That looks so good. I love anything with lemon or lime. I used to put some softened cream cheese in lime jello while it was still warm and it was rise to the top when it was set. I should get some jello! Happy summer! Hugs, Diane

Lavender Dreamer- Interesting! I find if I do not whisk it completely, I have a 2 layered dessert. Light & creamy on the top & gelatin on the bottom.

Stacey- Nice & light for a summer dessert.
