  • 1 6 oz strawberry gelatin
  • 2 3 oz cook & serve vanilla pudding mix
  • 4 cups hot water
  • 8 oz. Cool Whip thawed
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh strawberries diced


  • Combine strawberry jell-o mix, vanilla pudding mixes and hot water in a large saucepan.
  • Bring mixture to a boil, stirring frequently. Continue boiling (and stirring) until mixture turns clear.
  • Pour into dish or bowl and chill until set. I usually make the night before and chill overnight.
  • Combine Cool Whip with jell-o/pudding mixture (a potato masher works well for this step).
  • Add diced strawberries immediately before serving. Stir gently to combine.
  • Refrigerate leftovers.


  • Instant pudding mix will not work with this recipe.
