Fruity Juice Jello! Yummy and Fresh and Fun and……….
wait for it………….
This is such a great little recipe to make with your kids, or for them. Children love jello and they will love the fruit you add to this if they help make this dessert.
And the best part about this is that you can make it using any fruit juice or fruit that you love, that your kids love, that’s lying around your house or that’s in season!
Let the sweet adventure begin!
Pour 1 cup apple juice into a small saucepan.
Sprinkle 2 envelopes (1/4 oz each) unflavored gelatin
over the apple juice in the pan.
Let sit till gelatin plumps up, about 2 minutes.
Set saucepan over medium-low heat and stir until the gelatin is dissolved and the liquid is completely clear, about 5 minutes.
Remove saucepan from heat and pour liquid into a large mixing bowl.
Add remaining 3 cups of apple juice and stir until well blended.
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, leaving the spoon in it, and set in refrigerator. Chill, stirring whenever you remember to, for about 1 hour. ( Don’t stress out about stirring. Completely forgot one time and it came out fine.)
Cut up about 3/4 cup green grapes in half, and toss them into a small bowl,
add about 1/2 cup of blueberries,
and 3/4 cup chopped strawberries.
After an hour test to see if the gelatin mixture is ready to take out of the fridge by dropping one piece of “lighter” fruit into it. If it “floats”, it’s ready!
Add the mixed fruit,
and gently stir it in. The fruit will be suspended in the gelatin (Looks super-cool! Tastes even better!)
Pour the mixture into an 8 inch baking dish,
cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm, about 5 hours or overnight.
Spoon into serving dishes or cut into 9 squares and serve.
Get your kids invested in the dessert and excited about eating it by having them give you a hand. They’ll be thrilled!
Bon Appétit, Ma Chérie!
