Real Food Jello Recipe – Healthy & Sugar-Free

5 from 1 review

Real food jello is much healthier than the store-bought version and it’s SUPER easy to make with just four ingredients, one of which is water!


  • 1 3/4 cups freshly juiced fruit juice or 100% organic juice not from concentrate, warmed (grape, apple, blueberry, orange, pineapple, and grape-apple all work well)
  • ¼ cup hot (almost boiling) water
  • 1 tablespoon of Kosher pasture-raised Gelatin Powder (buy here)
  • Optional: 1 drop each of Lemon and Orange essential oils or two drops of orange, lemon, or Citrus Fresh


  1. In a medium bowl, pour in the tablespoon of gelatin powder.
  2. Add just enough warm juice (but not all of it) to cover the gelatin and stir well. Let sit for 2-3 minutes or until it forms a thick syrup.
  3. Next, add the 1/4 cup of boiling water (I use an electric tea kettle) and stir well.
  4. Once the gelatin has fully dissolved, add the rest of the juice and drops of essential oil and stir well.
  5. Pour into a pan lined with parchment paper and let it cool in the refrigerator for 2 hours, or until the top is firm.
  6. Slice and serve!


To add in even more nutrition and also probiotics, replace half or all of the juice with my grape juice kefir. Get that recipe here on my blog.
