Note to previous reviewer: This is my family's recipe and I wanted to say that I actually like the little pockets of sour cream in this jello salad! So I don't mix it to totally melt the sour cream, but of course, its all to taste!



I thought this was great! we loved the yummy strawberry flavor. I think next time I might try making it with yogurt instead of sour cream to lighten it a bit. Thanks Tan for a great recipe!



i dont know why this recipe doesnt have more reviews, people must not make a lot of jello my family LOVES jello and they LOVE this recipe i did alter it a bit, i use 1 cup of sour cream instead of 2 and i add 1 cup of cold water after the jello is added to the 2 cups boiling water and i mix the smashed banana with the sour cream. Great recipe we will use it for all major holidays along with the 7 layer jello and pretzel jello.
