Fruit Juice Jello

I have one son who has severe allergies and when he was younger there was very little he could eat.  I am so thankful for all that the Lord has shown us and how He has healed my son from may of his allergies.  When he was little, I struggled to find desserts that he could eat.  We stumbled upon how to make Fruit Juice Jello and it looked like it would work.  It did!  And he liked it!  In fact, all my children really liked it.

This is so simple.  It makes a thick jello that can be eaten with your fingers.  I love that there are so few ingredients.  I love that I can pronounce all the ingredients.  But my favorite thing about this simple recipe is that my son can eat it!

Fruit Juice Jello

We have had some sick children around here lately and I knew this would be the perfect treat for scratchy throats.  

If made without the additional sweetener, it is just very lightly sweet, and my children like it just fine.  It feels cool and good on sore throats.  I don’t mind making a yummy, sugar free treat for them when I know it will make them happy and help them feel better.

Fruit Juice Jello

4 C fruit juice (we use fruit only juice), divided
4 envelopes (.25 oz each) Unflavored Gelatine
2 TB sugar or honey (optional- I don’t use when the children are sick)

Start with cold juice.  Bring 3 cups of juice to a boil.  Add the optional sweetner at this time, if using. 

In a bowl, pour 1 C of cold juice.  Sprinkle all of the gelatine over the juice.  It will start to absorb and created really cool peaks and valleys.  Allow it to stand for 1 full minute.

Carefully add the boiling juice to the gelatine mixture.  Stir for 5 minutes or until the gelatine is completely dissolved.  Don’t skip this part or your jello will be gritty and that is gross!

Pour into a 9″x13″ pan and refrigerate for 3 hours or until firm.  Cut into squares.  You can cut into cute little 1″ cubes or big squares like we did.

We have used apple juice and grape juice for this.  I haven’t experimented with other flavors, but I bet they would work too.

So, there you have it.  A lightly sweet treat for the children.  And you.  

What flavor Fruit Juice Jello would you make?
