  • 5 cups chopped mixed fruits (choose a colorful variety like strawberries, kiwi, grapes, and mango)
  • 4 cups water (divided)
  • 1⅓ cups gelatin (divided into ⅓ cup and 1 tablespoon)
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 cup milk
  • Dash of vanilla extract
  • 1 packet strawberry jelly (or any flavor of your choice)


  1. Fruit Gelatin Layer: In a saucepan, combine 3 cups of water, ⅓ cup of gelatin, and sugar. Heat on medium until the gelatin and sugar dissolve completely. Remove from heat and stir in the lemon juice. In a large mold, arrange the chopped fruits and pour the gelatin mixture over them. Refrigerate until set, about 2-3 hours.
  2. Milk Layer: Heat the milk with 1 tablespoon of gelatin and a dash of vanilla, stirring until the gelatin is fully dissolved. Allow it to cool slightly, then gently pour it over the set fruit gelatin layer. Refrigerate until this layer sets, about 1 hour.
  3. Jelly Layer: Prepare the strawberry jelly with 1 cup of water following the package instructions. Once the milk layer is set, pour the jelly over it. Refrigerate until completely set, about 2 hours.
  4. To Serve: Carefully unmold the dessert onto a plate, or serve directly from the dish.

  • Fruit Selection: Use a variety of colorful fruits to enhance the visual appeal of the dessert.
  • Layer Setting: Ensure each layer is completely set before adding the next to keep the layers distinct and neat.
  • Unmolding Tip: To easily unmold the dessert, briefly dip the bottom of the mold in warm water to loosen the jelly.


  • Can I use frozen fruit? It’s best to use fresh fruit as frozen fruit can release excess water and affect the setting of the jelly.
  • How long will this dessert keep? This dessert is best enjoyed within a day or two of making it, as the fruits will remain freshest during this time.

Conclusion: Fruit Jelly Delight is a fabulous dessert that’s as fun to make as it is to eat. It combines the natural sweetness and flavors of assorted fruits with the soft texture of jelly, creating layers of deliciousness that are sure to impress. Perfect for any gathering, this dessert not only adds a pop of color to your table but also provides a light and tasty finale to your meal.
