7 Up Raspberry Jello Salad

Tuesday, November 23, 2021
7 Up Raspberry Jello Salad is a delicious Jello Salad recipe for Thanksgiving and Christmas or just because.

Raspberry Jello is made with 7 Up, crushed pineapple, mandarine oranges, mini marshmallows and fresh raspberries. It's set in the refrigerator before being covered with a homemade pineapple mousse mixture. 

I decided to decorate the top with 3 raspberries and a mint leaf to give the feel of holly berries making it perfect for Christmas and the holidays but delicious enough for anytime.  7 Up Raspberry Jello Salad with 4 sets of  3 raspberries and a mint leaf to look like a holly berry for Christmas in a clear glass 9"x13" pan space 4 down each side.
If you're still trying to decide on a Fruit Salad or Jello Salad for Thanksgiving I have the perfect one for you! 

7 Up Raspberry Jello Salad is my twist on one of our family favorite recipes my Mother In Law taught me how to make early on in our marriage 7 Up Salad with Lemon Jello that was handed down to her from my husbands Grandmother. 

It wouldn't be the holidays without a 7 Up Salad and this one will quickly become a favorite! Between Colt and the boys they have already devoured half a pan and I will be surprised if the rest makes it through the night. 

Here's how to make 7 Up Raspberry Jello Salad:

In front a measuring cup with a strainer filled with crushed pineapple draining into measuring cup in the background there is Mandarin Oranges in a strainer over a measuring cup.

First drain separately:
  • 20 ounces Crushed Pineapple In Juice. Press out the pineapple juice and reserve 1 cup Pineapple Juice for later.
  • 11 ounces Mandarin Oranges In Light Syrup or Juice 
Raspberry Jello being poured into boiling water in a stainless steel pan.

In a large sauce pan bring 2 cups Water to a boil.

Remove pan from heat and stir in 6 ounces Raspberry Jello until Jello is dissolved.

7 Up in a measuring glass being poured into Raspberry Jello mixture in a stainless steel pot.

Stir in 2 cups 7 Up and stir well. 

Allow Raspberry Jello to cool for 10 minutes off the heat. 

Mandarine Oranges being stirred into 7 Up Raspberry Jello.

Stir into Jello:
  • Drained Crushed Pineapple
  • Drained Mandarin Oranges
  • 1 cup Mini Marshmallows 

7 Up Raspberry Jello Salad in a 9"x13" pan covered with marshmallows and a cups worth of fresh Raspberries being evenly distributed over the top.

Pour into a 9"x13" pan or 10 -12 individual parfait glasses. 

Evenly distribute 1 generous cup Fresh Raspberries and press into Jello until covered. 

Cover and refrigerate for 2-3 hours until set. 

Flour, Sugar, and Unflavored Gelatin whisked together in a stainless steel sauce pan with a whisked egg being stirred in.

To make the Pineapple Pudding Mousse in a medium sized saucepan whisk together until well combined:
  • 2 tablespoons All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Unflavored Gelatin
Stir in 1 whole Egg that has been whisked until mixture is smooth.

Pineapple Juice being stirred into the egg, flour, sugar, and unflavored gelatin mixture in a stainless steel pan.

Slowly whisk in reserved 1 cup Pineapple Juice.

Butter being stirred into Pineapple Pudding mixture to cover 7 Up Raspberry Jello Salad.

Add 3 tablespoons Butter and turn heat to medium. Bring mixture to a boil while stirring constantly. 

Boil for about 3 minutes or until thickened. Don't walk away from the mixture because it can burn easily. 

Set aside to cool for about 10 minutes. 

Beaten Whipped Cream with Pineapple Pudding being folded in.

Beat together until stiff peaks form about 1-2 minutes: 
  • 2/3 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
Fold in Pineapple Pudding mixture.

Chopped Walnuts or Sliced Almonds can be used over the top to garnish. I skipped them this time but it's delicious with a little crunch.

I used fresh Raspberries in groups of 3 with a mint leaf to give it a holiday feel but you could also just add a raspberry at each serving.

I have been thinking about this variation of 7 Up Salad for sometime and it turned out even better than I hoped for! I hope your family loves it as much as ours.
