This yummy 7-up jello salad recipe is a big throwback. A retro jello salad complete with shredded cheese on top. If I could share the barfing emoji, I would. Don’t worry, we omitted the shredded cheese. Is shredded cheese on jello an Idaho/Utah/Mormon thing? Or was that a worldwide phenomenon? Either way this YUMMY 7-UP jello SALAD is amazing!
So let’s talk about this 7-Up Jello Salad. It has the most incredible pineapple pudding/whipped cream topping. AMAZING! And the jello has a little fizz to it from the soda.
2 Packets of Jello– Pick your favorite flavor. I used orange.
2 C. Hot Water
2 C. 7-Up
1 20 oz. Can of Crushed Pineapple (Reserve the juice–i got 1/2 C out of mine)
3 Large Bananas
1 1/2 C. Mini Marshmallows
1/2 C. Pineapple Juice
1/2 C. Granulated Sugar
1 Tbs. Flour
1 C. Whipped Cream
7-up Salad Instructions: Dissolve jello in 2 cups of hot water in a 5 Qt. Pyrex dish. Allow it to cool. Add 2 cups of 7-up. Let it set until thick (I put mine in the fridge). Once thickened, add 2 cups of crushed pineapple, 3 sliced bananas, and 1 1/2 cups of mini marshmallows.
Topping Instructions: Add pineapple juice, sugar, flour, and egg to a saucepan. Mix well, then turn on your burner to medium high. Cook until it starts to boil, at which point it will thicken. Cool, then fold in the whipped cream. Spread on jello and refrigerate until ready to serve.
