RECIPE: Sugar Free Fruit Jelly

    This recipe links to the post ‘Cleaning Up The Classics Part II

    Serves 4ingre

    • 1 3/4 cups freshly squeezed juice – I have used orange here but you can use any you like including veggie juices šŸ™‚
    • 1/4 cup just boiled water
    • 1 tablespoon organic grass-fed gelatine (I got mine from Amazon)
    • chopped strawberries, raspberries, oranges or any other fruit pieces you’d like to add



    1. Prepare your juice, either squeeze by hand or use a juicer to extract your chosen blend.
    2. Firstly, youĀ needĀ to “bloom” the gelatine in a bit of your room temperatureĀ fruit juice, this ensures a smooth and even end result. In a medium mixing bowl, sprinkle the tablespoon of gelatine over Ā¼ cup of the fruit juice and whisk well until the mixture starts to thicken.
    3. Once the mixture is nice and thick, pour the Ā¼ cup of hot (just boiled) water over it, and whisk well to dissolve evenly, this can take a bit longer than you think and make sure to use the whisk to scrape the sides and base of the bowl. When the mixture is smooth, add in the remaining 1Ā½ cups of fruit juice, beatingĀ well to combine.
    4. Pour the mixture into 4 ramekins, dessert glasses or a glass serving dish and sprinkle in your fruit pieces, use the back of a spoon to gently push them below the surface so they are covered by the jelly otherwise they may oxidise and discolour.Ā Pop into the fridge to firm up for 2-3 hours depending on whether you’ve done individual servings or a large communal dish.
    5. Dive in and enjoy this beautifully sweet, refreshing treat!Ā jel
