Sugar-Free Superfood Jello


J-E-L-L-O! We all remember the song and we all remember those oh so yummy jello jigglers! Well I’ve healthified this childhood favourite and made them free of artificial flavours and refined sugars. Homemade jello is super easy to make.  The only real time it takes is waiting for it to set!

This jello is also made from a high quality grass-fed gelatin. I talk about how important gelatin is and why you need to buy a grass-fed source here.  I prefer Great Lakesbeef-gelatin

I also healthified it even further by sneaking in some powdered greens, I promise no one will notice! Phresh GreensOne serving of this jello is so nutrient-rich it’s equivalent to eating a salad. You heard me!  So eat your jello – guilt-free!

Makes 4 Servings

1 1/2 lbs fresh berries
10-15 drops liquid stevia (depending on how sweet you like it)
2 Tbsp grass-fed gelatin (I used Great Lakes)
1 cup cold water
2 tsp powdered greens*

*Powdered greens are optional but a great way to sneak in some nutrients without anyone ever knowing 🙂

Add the cold water and gelatin to a small saucepan. Stir and let it sit for a minute to gel.Strawberry JelloWash and hull the berries, add them to a high-speed blender with stevia and green powder.  Blend on high.

If you are not using a high-speed blender like a Vitamix or Blendtec you will want to strain the blended berries through a mesh sieve to remove any seeds.  You may notice that not straining it will result in a creamier texture, which I prefer!Strawberry Jello2Transfer to a bowl.  Add enough water to yield 3 cups. Stir and set aside.

Place the small sauce pan with the gelatin mixture on the stove over medium heat.  Slowly heat the mixture until the gelatin has completely dissolved, be sure not to bring it to a boil.  Add this to the blended berries, stir well and immediately transfer to 4 bowls or a 9′ x 13′ baking dish if you want to cut into shapes like I did!Strawberry Jello3Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.

Remove from fridge, cut out shapes or scoop into bowls.  Top with coconut whip cream and more berries.  Enjoy!Strawberry Jello5Get creative! Play around with different flavours by juicing or blending your favourite fruit.  As long as it yields 3 cups it should substitute into this recipe no problem.

    Now I have the “jello” song in my head…”Watch it wiggle, see it jiggle, cool and fruity…” Anyways – I’m so excited to try this recipe. I eat clean and so swore off most packaged foods. This recipe looks wholesome and a nice sweet treat, too. Thanks.
