Snack Time: Juice Jelly Cubes

Even if you're wary of those red and green mystery "fruit" powders, you can still give your kids the jiggly treats they want. The trick is to use a juice with ingredients you approve of and set it in a plain gelatin. These cubes are not only healthier, but they're also just as easy to make as the boxed stuff.

 

  • 2 cups of your kid's favorite juice (we used grape and grapefruit in the photo)
  • 2 packets of unflavored gelatin
  • 1 tablespoon sugar or honey (optional)

Pour 1/2 cup of juice in a bowl and sprinkle gelatin over it. While this sits, heat the remaining juice to boil (can do this in the microwave for 2 to 3 minutes). Pour hot juice over juice and gelatin mixture and stir, adding in extra sugar if desired. Pour mixture into the bottom of a loaf pan and chill for three hours, or until firm. Cut into squares.

Kids can help: Measure, mix

Extras: Pour mixture into miniature or regular-sized muffin tins for different shapes.

Do you think your kids would like this snack?

They might.  They have to be in the right mood for jello type snacks.
