Happy Independence Day Jello Recipe!

One of my best friends, Rachel, made a rainbow jello mold for my bridal shower and ever since then I have wanted to make one! I tried to make one for my nephew's birthday party - it ended up pretty cute, but tasted even better!!! So for this Fourth of July I would like to share the recipe with you for a simple yet fun and pretty Jello Mold! (this is the jello mold I made for my nephew's first birthday party)

You'll need:1 bundt pan (nice and smooth inside is best) 5 different colors of gelatin and 1 8-ounce container of lowfat vanilla yogurt
How to make your rainbow gelatin mold:

Step 1: Start with the color you want to appear on your bundt's "top." Pour 1-1/4 cups of hot water into the Jell-O powder to thoroughly dissolve. Pour half of the liquid into your bundt pan and refrigerate for 15 minutes.

Step 2: Meanwhile, chill the other half of the Jell-O liquid for 5 minutes. Then, add 3 tablespoons of vanilla yogurt to the reserved Jell-O. Stir until the yogurt is completely mixed in (no white bumps).

Step 3: When the first half of the Jello has chilled for 15 minutes, add the Jell-O/yogurt mixture on top in the bundt pan. (It is just barely "set," so do not pour too vigorously; it may be easiest to gently spoon the yogurty Jell-O on top.) Chill for 15-20 minutes. Now you have a "clear" layer and a "cloudy" layer of the first flavor/color. While the above is chilling, prepare your next color.

Repeat steps 1-3 until you've completed all of the jello layers (5 colors, 10 layers in total!). Chill the gelatin layers all together in the bundt mold for at least 2 hours, and until you're ready to serve.
To unmold:Fill the sink with a few inches of hot water. Dip the outside of the bundt pan in the water for a couple of seconds. This will melt the outside of the jello's bundt pan just enough so that it can slide out of the mold. Put a plate over the top, and then invert the jelly mold onto the plate. Enjoy your groovy rainbow treat!
