Healthy Homemade Jello

Jello is such a fun treat, that kids of all ages have loved for generations.  A lot of parents worry about the artificial colors, flavors, and other ingredients that come along with the stuff in the box.  I love making my own treats from scratch which is why I love this Healthy Homemade Jello Recipe. I make mine with fruit juice, and I don’t even need to add sugar.  It’s cool, jiggly, and totally healthy!

How to Make Healthy Jello At Home

Gelatin is the secret ingredient that transforms simple fruit juice into this jiggly treat.  It takes all of 5 minutes to throw a batch together, and I encourage you to give it a try. 

  • The first step is to pour half of your fruit juice into a large bowl. Sprinkle the gelatin over the entire surface of the juice and let it sit for about 5 minutes to soften the gelatin.
  • Heat the remaining 2 cups of juice in a small pot until it comes to a boil.
  • Pour the hot juice into the bowl with the gelatin and stir to combine. Stir until the gelatin is dissolved.
  • Pour into a 9×12 baking pan and refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm.
  • Once firm, cut into cubes and serve with whip cream on top!
