  • 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
  • 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.
