This Jello Gem Cream Roll recipe was shared by my sister-in-law, but I slightly changed the filling instructions. She used one flavor of jello which was not fully set yet, to sweeten and add color to her whipped cream filling. I chose to use 3 different jello flavors, let each fully set, then cut them up into small “gems” and gently fold them into the whipped cream to create the mosaic effect.
This is one of my family’s favorite jello desserts, because it can be made from regular jello, or sugar free jello, without jeopardizing its texture, or taste.
Jello desserts are great any time, but I love them that much more during the summer months.
Then again, whipping up a jello dessert mixed with cream cheese and fruit, how can you beat that?
This hot summer weather is calling for lots of quick to prepare light meals, thus lots of salads and refreshing desserts.
Jello desserts are one of my favorite desserts for the summer, because they are light, and served cold.
The abundance of fresh strawberries from my garden, and succulent rhubarb stalks from my daughter’s garden, prompted me to cook up a delicious fruity compote, and create a batch of refreshing popsicles, for my grandchildren to enjoy during this hot weather.
