Easy Healthy Homemade Jello Recipe

natural healthy nontoxic jello

My daughter absolutely loves Jello, but I wasn’t a fan of some of the questionable ingredients so I looked for a healthier alterative that was still full of yummy, jiggly fun!

Unlike conventional jello, this recipe contains zero artificial dyes, zero artificial flavors, zero refined sugars, and zero yucky chemicals! It’s simply naturally nutritious and delicious.



  1. Combine 3/4 cup of juice and sprinkle with 2 Tbsp of gelatin powder.
  2. Whisk the juice/gelatin mixture and allow to sit for about 5 minutes. It will appear very thick like applesauce when ready.
  3. Pour the remaining 3 1/2 cups of juice into saucepan. Heat over medium heat until almost boiling.
  4. Remove from heat.
  5. Stir in the juice/gelatin mixture and honey (optional).
  6. Pour into a 9×13″ glass baking dish, glass jars, or the dish size you prefer.
  7. Refrigerate approximately 2-4 hours or overnight (we let ours sit overnight for the best results).

Optional: Top it off with fruit and organic cream (or this dairy-free version made with coconut oil that we love).
