I made some awesome healthy fruit jigglers, and let me tell you… They are so much fun! They jiggle hard-core and my kids think they are great! This is a great healthy recipe and I actually got it right off the Knox Gelatine box. I can’t believe I haven’t tried it until recently. I have done a couple different varieties: 100% grapefruit juice and this time 100% orange juice. Fairly plain for now while I am figuring it out, but I think it will be fun to mix up juices and add chopped fruit to it as well. There are a lot of fun possibilities.
Homemade Fruit Jigglers
4 c. fruit juice (100% juice) – separated
4 packets of gelatin
1/8 c. sugar or honey (optional)
1/4 c. chopped fruit (optional)
Put 1c. cold juice in bowl, pour gelatin on top. Let it sit.
Heat the remaining juice (3 cups) to a simmer… then, mix the two together until all the gelatin has dissolved.
You may want to add a little bit of sugar or honey to it at this point I tried it with just juice before and the final product was a little bitter.
Put your mixture in a 9×13 pan (or a cookie sheet, if you want thin jigglers, but I haven’t tried that yet)
Like I said, my kids couldn’t keep their hands off them (literally). I was having a hard time getting pictures of them. haha! Enjoy. And let me know if you try any fun variations.
