While combing through the internet for fun St. Patrick’s Day ideas to share with everyone, I came across a fun picture of a tiered green jello, perfect for the holiday! I looked into it further and found that the recipe is actually for a green ice cream jello. I know what you’re thinking right now: “ice cream jello???” (I had the same thought)! Whatever it is, I’m already a fan!
I’m going to share with everyone an easy recipe to make green ice cream jello for St. Patrick’s Day! This recipe is inspired by a post from the Food Librarian.
- 2 packets of green jello mix
- 1 packet of unflavored gelatin mix
- 4 cups water (boiling hot)
- ice cream (~1 quart, or less if you want more layers of jello)
In a bowl, dissolve the the packets of mix in the boiling water. Once the mix is completely dissolved, stir in the ice cream until that has dissolved as well.
Pour into a glass dish or a jello mold. Refrigerate overnight or until solid.
The ice cream will float to the top during the coagulating process!
This recipe is super easy and can be prepared with minimal ingredients. It’s almost as easy as making regular jello, except with 2 extra ingredients!
