Homemade Strawberry Jello Recipe
If you love jello but not the congealed red #40 & artificial flavorings found in boxed versions, you’re going to love this healthy strawberry jello recipe.
Servings 15 squares
- 2 cups fresh strawberries (previously frozen will also work as long as the strawberries are partially thawed)
- ¾ cup room temperature water
- 5 tbsp raw honey
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 4½ tsp grass-fed gelatin
- a few drops of natural red food coloring (optional - I like this brand)
Place the strawberries, water, honey, and lemon juice in a blender and puree until smooth.
Scoop out 1/4 cup of the puree and place it in a small bowl. Sprinkle the gelatin over the bowl and mix it with the puree until well-combined.
While the gelatin is blooming, place the remaining puree in a small pot and heat over medium high heat. When the puree is hot but not yet boiling, remove it from heat.
Immediately add the bloomed gelatin and whisk until thoroughly combined.
Divide the jello mixture between 3-4 small glass jars. I use either 4 ounce mason jars or 7 ounce tulip jars.
Refrigerate for 2-3 hours, or until the strawberry jello has set.
