Colorful Jello Salad

Who doesn’t love jello? And when you make jello with fresh fruit juices, rich in minerals, vitamins and anti-oxidants, and then mix them together with fresh fruits, the result is doubly nutritious.

Fresh fruit juices are really tasty and healthy, and gelatin gives them a texture which makes them more filling to the stomach, and it tricks your taste buds into thinking that you are eating something really sweet and tasty (which you are not, actually) as well.


500 ml. of your favorite fruit juice

1 sachet of plain gelatin powder

200 gm. chopped fresh fruits (mix apples, strawberries, raspberries, and other flavorful combination)

Dressing (optional):

1 teaspoon honey

1 teaspoon lemon juice


Heat 2 tablespoon of water, and when it boils, sprinkle the gelatin. Stir briskly to let the gelatin dissolve thoroughly. Add this to the fruit juice of your choice, and pour it in a container. Put the container in the fridge and let the jello set.

Once the jello is set completely, remove and chop into 1 inch cubes. Chop the fruits into small, even size pieces. If you are using berries, then clean and wash them.

In a bowl, arrange the fruits and the jello cubes. You can also whisk lemon juice and honey together and use it as a dressing, but that is optional, and you can skip that step if you don’t want it.

Though it takes a bit of time to prepare this recipe, the result is so great that you would love to make it over and over again. Also, you can make this with two or more fruit juices, and mix everything together to make a colorful salad, which children love immensely.

So you can actually sneak in a lot of fruits into your and the children’s diet without them noticing it at all.
