Lemony Simply Delicious

Looking out my kitchen window I kept admiring these bright yellow flowers that suddenly sprung upward and blossomed.  The mere fact that they were yellow prompted me to quickly locate the Lemon flavored package of Jello Gelatin that I had purchased two days earlier.  This has to be my fave "quick make" dessert!  Simply Delicious!  It really is simple to make and is delicious.  Two servings of this tasty light creamy dessert does not need a lot of preparation.  And ... it's very easy to double the recipe, even triple if needed.  :) 

The men in my fam have always enjoyed Jello, so I've made this treat for years, doubling the recipe.  There are only 3 ingredients!  Sweet!

Lemony Simply Delicious - 2 servings 

(1) pkg. small box Lemon flavored Jello Gelatin 
(1) Cup Vanilla Ice Cream
(1) Cup boiling water

  1. Boil 1 Cup cold water.
  2. Place contents of 1 small pkg. Lemon flavored Jello Gelatin in medium sized bowl.
  3. Pour in hot water and stir well to dissolve gelatin.
  4. Add 1 Cup Vanilla Ice Cream to bowl. 
  5. Whisk or stir well until ice cream melts.
  6. Pour into 2 dessert dishes or mugs.
  7. Refrigerate several hours.
  8. Serve with whipped Cream.
Quite often if I have Strawberry ice cream, I pair it with Strawberry gelatin.  Also so light, creamy and delicious! 

Looking out my window today the purple Hyacinths are beginning to blossom. Ohhh, I'll be looking for the Black Raspberry ice cream in my freezer and Raspberry gelatin in my pantry. :)
Happy Easter!!!

Thank you for sharing you lovely flowers JG and that recipe i used to make so often when my boys were growing. Will be making this one again; I forgot all about it.

Very pretty flowers! I whip up some cream cheese and add it to the hot jello and it rises to the top. I make it with sugar free so it's really a treat I can eat and enjoy! I want to try your recipe now! ♥

Love the hyacinths, we have some in our front yard and I know it's spring the minute I see them start to show! So pretty! Dessert does sound simply delicious!

Sounds like a Jello I would love too.

Rita- Our sons all enjoyed this easy yummy dessert! :) It was a nice surprise in the fridge.

Lavender Dreamer- Sounds so good! Does your dessert look like the advertised Jell-O Temptations?

ann- It is a light dessert. Lemon flavored is my substitute for Lemon Meringue Pie and Lime flavored - Key Lime Pie. :)

Carol- It's great to look outside and see the spring flowers.

Barbara Bakes- This is one of our faves!
