Sometimes my eyes are huge at the grocery store and I buy way too much produce. To keep it from going bad I either freeze it, make smoothies, or my favorite…jellies! The jellies are similar to my healthy gummy bear recipe. It’s just a fun way to eat fruits and vegetables. They are easy to make and perfect for kids or road trips. I like to bring mine to the movies. I’m one of those big-purse people.
You can make these in all different flavors. Just don’t use kiwi; the gelatin won’t set.
In these jellies, I used: *1 cup pineapple, *1 lemon, *1 medium orange, *1 packet Truvia, *1 tsp vanilla, *4 gelatin packets.
If you are making this for kids; sneak in some vegetables! They’ll never know!
-Blend together all ingredients except gelatin.
-After blending, poor the mix into a sauce pan.
-Bring the mix to a boil and remove from heat.
-Pour the boiled mixture back into the blender.
-Add packets of gelatin and blend on high until no chunks of the gelatin remains.
-Add to a tin or kitchen container.
-Place in the refrigerator for approximately 3-4 hours. Or until firm.
Once the jellies have set you can either cut them with a knife (saves so much time) or use a cookie cutter to form fun shapes!
Kids love making them into animals or hearts. Well not only kids, this girl, too!
