Fresh Fruit Gelatin


During the hot days of summer we all like a cool, sweet treat now and then. Ice cream seems to be the obvious choice but it’s not always the healthiest choice. I wanted to come up with something cool, naturally and lightly sweet, and if at possible nourishing too. It seems like a lot to ask of a dessert but this fresh fruit gelatin is all that while being incredibly delicious and completely customizable.

Whip up a cool and naturally sweet treat with with this fresh fruit gelatin.

This is not the fruit flavored, artificially colored gelatin found on your grocery store shelves. It’s way better in taste and texture. While it’s not instant, it’s not terribly time consuming either. Refrigeration is the most time consuming part and that is obviously hands-off. We start this recipe with fresh fruit purée, use whatever is your favorite. Berries and stone fruits are going to work better than say bananas but try your favorite fruit and grab a spoon.
