  • 6 oz. 100% fruit juice flavor of choice
  • 1 cup water cold
  • 1 T Knox unflavored gelatin 1 packet
  • 1/4 cup water boiling
  • 1/2 cup berries fresh is best but frozen works too

  2. Pour 1/4 cup of the juice water into a small mixing bowl and whisk in the gelatin until it thickens.

  3. Once thickened, pour in the 1/4 cup of boiling water and whisk until completely dissolved. Then stir in the remainder of the juice water.

  4. Put berries in the bottom of dessert cups and pour the gelatin over the top. Place the dessert cups in the refrigerator until set, 2-3 hours. 

  5. Eat as is or top with coconut whipped cream. Enjoy!
