- 1 3/4 cups freshly squeezed juice – I have used orange here but you can use any you like including veggie juices 🙂
- 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
- Prepare your juice, either squeeze by hand or use a juicer to extract your chosen blend.
- Firstly, you need to “bloom” the gelatine in a bit of your room temperature fruit juice, this ensures a smooth and even end result. In a medium mixing bowl, sprinkle the tablespoon of gelatine over ¼ cup of the fruit juice and whisk well until the mixture starts to thicken.
- Once the mixture is nice and thick, pour the ¼ 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 1½ cups of fruit juice, beating well to combine.
- 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. Pop into the fridge to firm up for 2-3 hours depending on whether you’ve done individual servings or a large communal dish.
- Dive in and enjoy this beautifully sweet, refreshing treat!
