- With this recipe, you can either use homemade juice like my Carrot Apple Ginger Juice or you can buy store bought. Totally up to you!

- Gelatin-I like this brand HERE. You can buy it in your local health foods store or you can buy it online.
- Fruit juice-You can make your own ( I am obsessed with this carrot ginger juice HERE) or you can buy store bought. Just make sure it doesn’t have any added sugars.
- Honey-This will give these homemade jello shapes a nice sweet flavor without any processed sugars.
How To Make:
- First, add one cup of your juice of choice to a bowl with the gelatin and continuously whisk.
- Next, allow the jello mixture to sit for 3 minutes. This allows the gelatin to “blossom.”
- Now, add the remaining juice into a saucepan and bring to a boil. Remove the pan from the heat.
- Once the pan is removed from the heat, add the gelatin mixture with the optional sweetener to the saucepan and mix.
- If you are using silicone molds, spray the molds with cooking spray oil. This will prevent the jello from sticking.
- Now, add the jello mixture into the molds and store in the fridge for 4 hours to allow the jello to set.

I love the idea of making these homemade healthy Easter jello shapes for Easter brunch. They would go great with:
- Gluten Free French Toast Casserole

What Kind Of Molds Should I Use?
- I love these molds.
How Do I Prevent The Jello From Sticking?
- I love to take a paper towel that has a little bit of oil on it and rub it inside of the molds.
Is Gelatin Good For You?
- Yes! Gelatin has an array of healthy benefits, from helping strengthen bones, ligaments, skin, hair. It is also really good for the gut. I add it to smoothies in place of protein powder.
- Be sure to oil the molds prior to using. This will prevent the jello from tearing!
- If you do not want to use molds, you can use a casserole dish, but be sure to oil that as well prior to adding the jello.
