Who knew that jello could be so good for you. Read about all the amazing benefits of gelatin, you might be surprised!
- 1 tbsp grass fed gelatin (Great Lakes Gelatin is what i recommend, link to website is below this recipe)
- 1/2 cup cold filtered water
- 2 heaping cups of frozen or fresh berries
- 3/4 cup water (may vary)
- 1/4–1/3 cup rapadura (unrefined organic whole cane sugar)
- Place 1 tbsp of gelatin in a bowl with a 1/2 cup of cold water. Stir and let sit for 5 minutes, and allow the gelatin to soften.
- Over medium heat, place the berries in a small saucepan. Heat slowly and press the fruit down with a potato masher as it is cooking down. Bring to a slight simmer (but not a boil) and remove from heat.
- Strain fruit through a sieve or fine mesh sifter. Cheese cloth could also be used. You should have 3/4 cup of puree left once you are through. If you do not want to strain it then you will most likely have 1 1/2 cup fruit puree left. You want to have a total liquid of 1 1/2 cups including your sweetener. Add enough water to this mixture to make 1 1/2 cups liquid (in my case I only had 3/4 cup strained fruit so I will add 3/4 cup water to make it 1 1/2 cup total liquid).
- Return back to stove and bring back to slight simmer.
- Add sugar and stir until dissolved, about 1 minute.
- Stir in the softened gelatin and stir until dissolved and combined, about 1 minute.
- Pour into your favorite jello mold or a glass pyrex dish.
- Chill for at least 2 hours before serving.
