Sparkling Jello

New Year is just 3 days away !  My daughter said I have to make something festive to celebrate. Last week, I came across a champagne and vodka jello recipe on Pinterest. Well…. I don’t drink and I can’t make something alcoholic for my kids, so I used Sprite instead and added some frozen berries to make it more colourful.  You can use any kind of clear carbonated drink you like.  Have a Happy New Year !

Makes about 12-16 mini jello cups, about 50 mL each

  • 2 envelopes or tablespoons unflavoured gelatin powder
  • 2 cups carbonated drink of choice (cold)
  • 200 mL water
  • 1-2 tablespoons granulated sugar if needed to adjust sweetness
  • Frozen berries, mangoes, or other fruits for decoration
  1. Sprinkle 2 envelopes of gelatin over 100 mL of water, let sit for a few minutes
  2. Add sugar to remaining water and heat until just boiled
  3. Pour hot water into gelatin mixture, stir until all dissolved
  4. Add carbonated drink, stir to mix, then pour into jello cups or bowls
  5. Add a few small pieces of frozen fruits to decorate
  6. Wrap and refrigerate until set, about 3 hours or overnight

 

 

 

Fruit Juice Jello

I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like jello, even my dad likes them !  You can enjoy them without adding any artificial colours or flavours.

  • 4 cups pure fruit juice (mango, grape, apple, etc)
  • 4 envelopes or tablespoons of unflavoured gelatin powder
  • Honey or sugar to sweeten if needed
  1. In a large bowl, sprinkle gelatin powder over 1 cup of fruit juice, let sit for a few minutes
  2. Heat the other 3 cups of juice over medium heat until boil
  3. Pour boiled juice into gelatin mixture and stir until gelatin completely dissolved
  4. Add honey or sugar according to your taste if needed
  5. Pour into molds or small cups and put in fridge until set, overnight or about 3 hours, enjoy!

Try to use sweeter juices like mango or pear, so you don’t even need to add sugar.  Dip bottom of molds in warm water for a few seconds for easy removal.
