  • ¼ cup cool water
  • 1 TBSP  pasture-raised gelatin green lid
  • ¼ cup very hot water
  • cups organic or fresh fruit juice of choice
  • 1-2 cups fresh fruit optional


  • Pour the cool water in a medium size mixing bowl and add the gelatin powder.
  • Stir briskly until mixed. It will start to thicken a lot.
  • Add the ¼ cup of really hot water and stir to mix. It should be thinner now.
  • Pour in the juice and mix well.
  • Place fresh fruit in a layer on the bottom of an 8x8 baking dish if using.
  • Pour the jello mixture over the fruit and stir slightly to make sure it has coated the fruit.
  • Put in the refrigerator, covered, for at least 2-3 hours or overnight.
  • Cut into cubes or scoop out with a melon baller to make cute shapes.
  • Enjoy.


Can double recipe. Also, do not use fresh pineapple juice alone for this recipe. The enzymes in fresh pineapple prevent the gelatin from "gelling"
