How to Make A Cottage Cheese and Jell-O Salad


This easy side dish is a good way to get kids to eat cottage cheese. The flavors and fruits can be adjusted to suit your preferences, and you can keep it healthy by using low-calorie ingredients. The instructions are for orange, but you could combine lime Jell-O with pineapple, strawberry or banana Jell-O with fresh strawberries, or cherry Jell-O with Bing cherries.

Things You'll Need

  • 1 small package of Jell-O, any flavor
  • 9 ounces whipped topping
  • 1 container small curd cottage cheese
  • 1 small can mandarin oranges, drained
  • Empty the container of cottage cheese into a bowl. Add the flavored gelatin powder into the bowl of cottage cheese. Using an electric mixer, combine the cottage cheese and gelatin on low to medium speed. This gives a creamier consistency.

  • Add the entire container of whipped topping into the cottage cheese mixture and stir together. Add the mandarin oranges and combine.

  • Transfer the mixture into an 8-by-8 pan and smooth it out. Place the dish in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 hours. Once it has set, cut it into squares and serve. You could also spoon it into parfait glasses and layer with additional whipped topping to make it more of a dessert.

Tips & Warnings

  • You can change up the flavors and fruit combinations examples below.
  • Lime jello with pineapple
  • Strawberry / Banana jello with fresh strawberries
  • Cherry jello with bing cherries when they are in season or canned cherries(not cherry pie filling).
  • If you are watching your calories you can use light cottage cheese or light cool whip as well.
