Berry Jello Salad

by Katie on April 29, 2015

Well, hello! I almost have forgotten how to write a blog post. It’s been a while since I have been able to regularly post. Time is flying by and I feel like I can barely keep up. I was just looking at May and realized that things really aren’t settling down, but I’m going to will it to – or at least learn to manage it better.

I have missed being able to regularly create recipes and blog. Since everything I do is “work from home” I’ve found that I need to figure out a better way to manage my days.  I’ve got all kinds of separate things flying at me all the time and I need to attempt to create some set times to do things so I can do others things I NEED to do during the other times (ie: laundry).

I know we are all busy, so I am preaching to the choir. But if you have any great time management tips I would love to hear them!!

But today I want to share with you this Berry Jello Salad!

Jello Salad of some sort has long been a favorite in my family. We have different kinds that we have made over the years, but I introduced everyone to Orange Fluff a few years ago. It quickly became a favorite and now is made for all of our special get togethers.

Since I hate to just leave things alone, I switched up a good thing and made another good thing with this Berry Jello Salad! It’s a lot like Orange Fluff, but is great for all of your berry lovers like me.

Besides the wonderful fruit and light flavor that is has, it also makes a great presentation. It’s the most beautiful color and so, so pretty. And we all like pretty food, right?

Mother’s Day is coming up in just over a week (I can’t believe it’s almost MAY!) and this would be great to serve your Mom! If orange is more her things…well, you have to try Orange Fluff!

Haha…I’m glad you figured it out! I went and changed it to “beat the cream cheese and jell/pudding mixture”…because it was kinda confusing. Sorry about that! Hope you all liked it. :)
