Pomegranate Jello Salad

Taking your traditional Jell-O and amping it up by adding pineapple and raspberry pie filling to the mix! 
Prep Time: 10 mins
Cook Time: 3 hrs
Total Time: 3 hrs 10 mins
Servings: 15 servings


  • 6 oz raspberry Jell-O
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 20 oz can of crushed pineapple
  • 21 oz can of raspberry pie filling and topping - I use Duncan Hines brand
  • 1 pomegranate, seeded
  • 3-4 bananas

Whipped topping



  • In a medium bowl combine the Jell-O powder and 2 cups of boiling water. Mix until the Jell-O is dissolved (about 2-3 minutes).
  • Add the can of raspberry pie filling and topping to the Jell-O. Mix until the pie filling is dissolved (or no longer clumpy). Once dissolved, empty the can of crushed pineapple (including the juice) into the Jell-O mixture.
  • Add the pomegranate fruits to the Jell-O. Pour the Jell-O mixture into a 9x13" pan. Place in the refrigerator to set. About 3-4 hours. 
  • Once Jell-O is set, remove from the fridge. Slice bananas (about 1/4"-1/2" thick) and distribute evenly over top the Jell-O. Make the whipped topping.

Whipped Topping

  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, or using a hand mixer, add the heavy whipping cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla. Beat until stiff peaks form. 
  • Spread the whipped topping mixture over the sliced bananas. Serve immediately, or place back in the fridge to keep cold until ready to serve. 


Jell-O packages typically call for 2 cups boiling water and 2 cups cold water. Since we are adding additional liquid found in the pineapple can and the pie filling, we omit the 2 cups cold water.
Cover the bananas completely in whipped cream to avoid oxidation and the bananas color to go brown.
Make Ahead, Storing, and Freezing: Store the pomegranate jello salad in the fridge, covered, for 3-4 days. I don't recommend freezing jello since the texture will change greatly once thawed.
