The World Famous Luke Family Dreamsicle Jello!

2 small (1 large) orange jello package
1 cooked lemon pudding package
1 instant lemon pudding package
8 oz cool whip
1 cup milk
Cook lemon pudding according to package directions, place in fridge to cool to room temperature or cooler.  Dissolve jello in 3 cups boiling water.  Mix the lemon pudding together with the jello, place in a 9x13 pan and place in fridge until set (at least 4 hours).  When set make the topping.  Combine the cool whip, instant pudding and 1 cup milk together.  Spread on top of the jello and put in the fridge to set (about an hour).
*And yes, I labeled it as both a side dish and dessert.  We think it's a side, others drift to it as a dessert. :)


  1. I know the Luke born kids like lemon orange, but I like to mix it up. Strawberry banana, vanikka raspberry, etc. Jordan acted like I committed an enormous sin the first time I changed it up. But sometimes I don't want citrus. & I hate cooking lemon pudding.

  2. So, Jenny, if you are doing the other puddings/jell-o combos, I assume you don't substitute another cook 'n serve option? You just go instant all the way?

    Also, in the original recipe, after you dissolve the jell-o, you add the cooled lemon pudding? You don't have to cool off the jell-o first?
