Do you know those name-brand cups that have jello with fruit in them? Dole makes some but there are other brands, too. My husband really likes these for his work, but if you buy the name brand cups, it's usally $2.59 for 4 cups. That's insane. I can buy a box of jello for about $1 (if you buy the name brand it's about a $1 but the store brand is a good bit cheaper) and a can of fruit for about the same and get double the amount of cups for less than the name brand! I usually get about 8 cups when I make these.
These are SO easy to make and so refreshing. My husband likes strawberry flavored jello with diced peaches.
So all you need is a large can of fruit and one large box of jello. You will also need 8 small containers with lids. These are the Glad brand and there was 8 in a box for about $2.00. But you will be reusing them so you will save money in the long run.
First, I dice up the fruit.
Then I place a small amount in each cup. It's filled up maybe 1/4 or 1/3 of the way.
Then make the jello as directed on the box.
Then pour jello into the cups until it's as full as the lid allows.
Chill until jello is set!
Another flavor we like is raspberry jello with pears.
What combination would you try?
