Jello Cloud Parfait

Thanks to: BChsMamaof3

What you will need:

  • 2 packages of Berry Blue Jello
  • 2 cups of whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 cups of ice
  • parfait glasses or any clear containers that you can see through

Start by placing your whipping cream in a large bowl, beat on high speed until just starting to thicken. As you continue to whip the cream slowly pour in your sugar, continue whipping cream until it forms super stiff peaks. You want to make sure that it is good and stiff so that if will hold it’s shape later in the jello. Keep chilled in fridge until needed.

Now it’s time to get your jello ready. Pour 2 cups of boiling water into a large bowl and add both boxes of berry blue jello powder. Stir until all of the sugar has dissolved. Now you are going to add your 2 cups of ice, this is going to set up your jello nice and quick :) Stir the ice around in the bowl for about 5 minutes until the jello has thickened and remove any left over ice that didn’t melt. Your jello won’t be super thick like after it has set in the fridge but it will be jelled enough to scoop out on a spoon in a blobby form.

Now the fun begins! Start by placing a few spoonfuls of jello in the bottom of your parfait glass, then take your whipped cream from the fridge and drop in a spoonful or two and press it against the side of the glass. This is going to form your cloud in the sky. Try not to smear any of the whipped cream where you don’t want a cloud, it will show up as streaks when you put more jello in so wipe away any unwanted marks.

Continue layering the jello and whip cream alternating where you place your cream clouds so that you get a nice staggered effect.

Voila! You’ve created a little chunk of sky in a glass and guess what…. it tastes fabulous!!
Have fun making some of your own!


  1. Instead of whipping my own cream, could I just use cool whip as a shortcut? Or would that be too soft? Thanks!

  2. Although I prefer whipped cream, Cool Whip would work better for this treat as it does not collapse and lose volume the way real whipped cream does. I'd also chill the Jell-O for a bit and then mash it up before putting in the parfait glasses. Semi-liquid Jell-O would be kind of yucky.

  3. How many parfait glasses does this yield?
