for everyone

This recipe comes from Whole Foods Market, but I used to make mine this way all the time too, but without the sugar. There is plenty of sugar in the fruit juices already
Homemade Jello

Serves 4

This treat is great with many of your favorite juices or fruit nectars (avoid pineapple, kiwi and papaya juice though). Vary the fresh fruit according to season; we like raspberries, sliced grapes and blueberries.


2 cups berry juice
1 tablespoon unflavored gelatin
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 cup fresh fruit


Pour 1 cup of the juice into a medium heatproof bowl. Sprinkle gelatin over juice and dissolve; set aside.

Combine remaining 1 cup juice and sugar in a small saucepan. Bring just to a boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Remove from the heat.

Pour hot juice mixture into gelatin mixture and stir to combine. Transfer to 4 ramekins, small ceramic bowls or 1 medium bowl. Add fruit and chill for 4 hours or until firm.

I stopped making jello this way when Larry was diagnosed with diabetes; as I am still thinking although much healthier, is still too much sugar.

However, yeh!! I think I found what we were looking for. My friend Sandy wants to make healthy jigglers for her grandkids  [knox+blox.jpg]
