Make Jello Blocks Made From Fruit Juice

facebookpinterestmail


Made only from fruit juice and gelatin, these are a dye free, corn syrup free, GMO free, much better alternative to jello from a box. Not amazingly healthy, but these are a fun treat.

Easy directions:
Boil 3 cups of fruit juice (I don’t know if pulpy juice like orange would work- I used purple grape Welch’s 100% Juice)
In a bowl, sprinkle 4 packets of unflavored gelatin over 1 cup of cold (or room temp) fruit juice.
When the gelatin has gotten jelloish, stir the boiled juice in with a fork.

A little honey (2 tablespoons or so) can be added if your kids are used to sweeter jello.

I put this in an 8×8 pyrex, leave out on the counter until it’s cooled a bit, then stick it in the fridge over night.

More information: Commercial gelatin is said to have MSG in it from the processing and isn’t preferable. Your health food store should have beef gelatin that’s less processed and contains much less (if any) MSG. The MSG isn’t added, it’s created during the processing, so it’s not going to show up on the label.

Alternatives to other unhealthy foods marketed to children:

Sweet Potato Fries

GFCF Chicken Nuggets (can be made with regular flour as well, either way they’re a much better alternative to fast food)

  1. Another user liked the fact that by simply rotating the spout dial that you could leave some of the pulp in the juice to add extra fiber.

    Raw beets cause some people to break out in hives, so it is better to
    start with less and add more.
