Homemade Jello with Cold-Pressed Juice

Homemade jello is super easy and healthy!
Course: Dessert
Author: The Chalkboard Magazine


  • 2 cups cold-pressed or 100% fruit juice divided
  • 2 tablespoons  grass-fed gelatin use more for a firmer result, less if you want it softer
  • A sprinkle of cane sugar for garnish (optional)


  • Start by blooming the gelatin. Place ½ cup of the juice in a heat-proof bowl. Sprinkle the juice with the gelatin and whisk to combine.
  • Meanwhile, bring the remaining juice to a boil. Once it’s boiling, remove from heat and pour into the bowl with the gelatin. Stir until the gelatin is dissolved.
  • Pour the mixture into an 8×8 baking dish or any cute molds you may have.
  • Place in the fridge to set for 3-4 hours. Cut into squares and dust with sugar, if desired.


Pineapple contains an enzyme that naturally battles the effects of gelatin, so you may need to use 4 1/2 tablespoons of gelatin if you choose a juice with pineapple in it.
