Fruit and Yogurt Jello Cups
These Fruit and Yogurt Jello Cups are so fun and easy to make, and they’re only 65 calories or 2 Weight Watchers SmartPoints on myWW Green, Blue and Purple!

I made a peaches & cream version this time because I’m on a peach kick, but you can make these with whatever fruit flavor you’re feeling at the moment: strawberry, raspberry, cherry, orange – whatever you like! This recipe is only 4 ingredients and can be prepped in under 10 minutes, so it’s a great one to make with kids. The gelatin will firm up in the fridge giving these a yogurt/mousse/jello smooth texture and I love the bites of fruit throughout. I think these would be equally great for dessert, breakfast, a snack, or all three!

Fruit and Yogurt Jello Cups
- 3 (5.3 oz) containers of nonfat vanilla Greek yogurt , (or another flavor…I used Dannon Light & Fit)
- 1 (0.3 oz) package dry mix of sugar free Jell-O gelatin , (I used Peach flavor)
- 1/3 cup chopped fruit, I used Peaches
- 12 tablespoons light whipped topping, such as Reddi Wip
- *Optional: additional fruit for topping
- In a microwavable mixing bowl, stir together the yogurt and Jell-O mix until thoroughly mixed. Place in the microwave and heat on high for 2-3 minutes, removing to stir after each minute, until the Jell-O powder is dissolved into the yogurt. Stir in the chopped fruit.
- Place paper liners into 6 cups of a standard muffin tin. Evenly divide the yogurt mixture into the paper liners and place the muffin tin in your refrigerator. Chill for at least one hour. When ready to serve, remove the paper liners and top each cup with two tablespoons of whipped topping.

These look so awesome! Thank you!
These look delicious, could you use Cool Whip instead of Red Whip?
Wonderful summer idea! We grow peaches, apricots, oranges, lemons, limes,pomagranates, figs, avocados, etc. on our property and give to the food bank and friends!
I think 3 minutes curdled the yogurt:( Will try another batch for only 2 min. How do I know how long is enough?
Oh no! How weird. Mine was good after 2 minutes, but recipe I adapted it from on the Jello site microwaved it longer. You just want the powder to dissolve into the yogurt, so once it’s not speckled you’re good to go.
I just made with plain Greek non fat & raspberry jello. Delicious! I microwaved for 2 minutes. Thanks for a great recipe!
These look fantastic! I am off to the grocery store a.s.a.p to pick up some jello! I am always looking for tasty low-cal desserts. It looks like I’ve found what I was looking for.
Do you think this would work with non Greek yogurt made from soy or almond milk? I can’t eat dairy at all including regular yogurt. Thanks and keeping my fingers crossed that it works.
Made these today, delicious. I’m going to try strawberry next. Thanks you!
I can’t figure out how these are only 1 smart point.
Debbie Walter, I just put it through the Recipe Builder, and it’s definitely 1 SP per serving.
If you microwave the yogurt you are destroying the active yogurt cultures. I would dissolve the jello in a small amount of boiling water, then let it cool a bit be fore whisking it with the yogurt.
I just put these in the fridge and can’t wait to try them tonight. Especially after licking the bowl clean 🙂 I only needed 1 minute to microwave (30 sec., stir, 30 sec.) for a smooth texture. Also got 8 almost full cupcake liners. Thanks for the idea!
Just to make you aware this recipe is in your vegetarian section but is not vegetarian! Gelatin is not a vegetarian product.
I didn’t even microwave it. Just whipped the jello into the plain Greek yogurt.
Microwave not required. Place yogurt and jello in food processor and process for 10 second or so and jello will dissolve into the yogurt
Thanks Emily and fellow Commenters.
I used Oikos vanilla Triple zero yogurt ( cut costs and used a portion of a larger container)
with sf raspberry jello and frozen blueberries. It is yummy.
On advice of others, skipped the microwave step. It dissolved in less than a minute.
So many wonderful combinations.
Any suggestions for someone who doesn’t own a microwave?
I just tried this today and it was delicious! I used sugar free diced peaches (snack cups) and put in 2 containers minus the juice. I plan to experiment with more flavors in the future.
Update – I tried this using strawberry sugar free jello and diced frozen strawberries. I mixed the Cool Whip into the yogurt mixture (because I didn’t read the directions). This was my favorite flavor so far.
Would the mixture work in small silicone molds for fancier shaped individual servings?
