To start making this Strawberry Banana Mandarin Jello Mold I opened up a can of mandarin orange segments and drained off the liquid.

After draining off the liquid I used a knife to break the mandarin segments into smaller pieces.

The next step is to dump the contents of two boxes of strawberry banana flavoured jello powder into a large mixing bowl.

I then poured in 2 cups of boiling water and stirred until all the jello powder dissolved.

Next I dumped the mandarin orange pieces into the jello and stirred them up.

I then set the bowl in the fridge for about an hour and 20 minutes until it was almost set.

After removing it from the fridge I added a tub of Cool Whip to the bowl.

I used a rubber spatula to fold the Cool Whip into the jello.

I sprayed the jello mold with cooking spray before I scraped in the Cool Whip mixture.

Now I put the lid on and returned it to the fridge.  Leave it to set for a couple of hours at least.  The good thing about this mold is that it can be prepared a day ahead. 

Just before dinner was served I removed the lid.

After inverting it onto a serving plate, I removed the center piece of the mold and the jello released from the mold onto the plate.

I removed the container and set the jello mold on the dinner table for everyone to enjoy with their holiday meal!
