You’re just three simple ingredients and five minutes away from the best old-fashioned dessert around, so whip up this Peach Jello Salad Recipe and get ready to enjoy summer! With Libby’s® Canned Peach Halves, cream cheese, and peach gelatin, this dessert comes together so quickly you’ll wonder why you haven’t made it a staple, just like Granny used to make. Grab the blender and get ready for some deliciousness!
Why Make This Jello Salad?
Because it is super simple and super delicious, of course!
With many grocery store items still scarce, such as flour, sugar, meats, and produce, this dessert features ingredients that are easy to source, so you can still serve something delicious for the whole family without having to scour the store for hard-to-find items.
I also love this recipe because you can just dump it all into a bowl and chill and serve it that way, or go the “fanciful” route and portion out little cups! I went the cup route because the kids enjoy the single servings, and in a quarantine environment, sharing dishes is less optimal.
So How Do I Make This Recipe?
All you need is to grab is a blender, toss the ingredients inside and whiz it up!
Since there is gelatin involved, you do need one cup of boiling water, but that’s all the prep that’s necessary.
I love breaking out my electric kettle to boil water because it’s ready in about two minutes and doesn’t require me turning on the stove!
I love breaking out my Libby’s® Fruits for this fun peach dessert because they are cost-efficient, which allows me to create a delicious dish without breaking the bank, and all the prep work is done for me already – no need to wash, peel, or dice!
I use the fruit juice-packed variety of Libby’s® Peaches for this jello salad, which results in a light and fluffy texture versus heavy syrup varieties, which create a more dense salad.
This salad is so easy that you can basically do anything and not mess it up! Try the following:
- Can’t find peach gelatin? Use strawberry instead for a fun flavor profile!
- Try Libby’s® Canned Pears instead!
- Drain an extra can and chop up the fruit for added texture
