Healthy Jell-o

I can’t even remember the last time I had Jell-O, so when I found this super simple recipe I had to give it a try. Let me tell you -it's quick to make (2 minutes tops!) and tasted so good that I had to resist eating the whole pan! The best part is that it isn’t full of processed sugars, flavors or food dyes. It is great for a little treat or snack and kids lunches too!

Ingredients

4 cups Organic Juice (I used grape)

2 TBS Gelatin (We love Vital Proteins and carry it at the office!)

Mix 2 cups juice with 2 TBS gelatin. It won’t dissolve completely, but let it set while you do the rest.

Next warm up 2 cups juice on the stove till it steams. DON’T boil it- just warm it up until you see steam.

Then add that to your original juice and gelatin. Mix together until all the gelatin is dissolved.

Place in a glass pan or container and put it in the fridge for 2 to 3 hours to set.

That is it! Try different juices to see what you like best!
