Recipe for homemade jello that you can make in minutes that is actually healthy too bypassing the artificially flavored and colored GMO concoctions at the supermarket.

Servings 6 cups
Author Sarah Pope MGA



  1. Juice enough fresh organic fruit to make 6 cups fresh juice. Alternatively, purchase unpasteurized fruit juice of choice from the healthfood store.  Do not use pasteurized juice if you can possibly help it even if it is organic as this is just sugar water with little nutritional value. Most of the vitamins and all of the enzymes have been destroyed in pasteurized fruit juice from the factory processing.

  2. Pour fresh juice into a glass bowl. 

  3. Mix gelatin with a few ounces of boiling water stirring vigorously. Pour water with dissolved gelatin into the bowl of fresh fruit juice stirring until thoroughly mixed. 

  4. Refrigerate overnight. Serve chilled by itself or with homemade ice cream.

Recipe Notes

Do not use collagen peptides instead of gelatin as it will fail to gel the juice.

To make a probiotic jello, try making this recipe with homemade orangina, root beer, or ginger ale!

For a medicinal type of jello treat to serve when your child is ill or has a cough, make this recipe using elderberry syrup.
