If you think it’s a bit much with the whipped cream, you can leave it off.  We all enjoyed it without the whipped cream layer, however we liked it more with the whipped cream layer.

It adds a creaminess to the jello that makes your lips smile with happiness.

And before someone leaves a comment in regards to you can’t mix pineapple and jello together as it wont set, I am here to tell you, you are wrong.  

Wrong. Just Wrong.

Maybe jello and pineapple don’t set for you, but I have a handful of Jello dishes with pineapple that turn out perfect EVERY time.

For those of you who have NO IDEA what I’m talking about, there was a “study” done on why Jello wont set when combined with Pineapple.  

It was something to the effect of Jello wont set because of a reaction to the pineapple.  if you google it, you’ll find the study pretty quickly.

I however, have made this Lemon Jello Salad with Pineapple and Bananas MANY times and it has set perfectly every time.  

This Lemon Jello Salad is sweet yet subtle.  It’s a fantastic side dish or a tasty dessert.
