Banana Blueberry Whipped Gelatin – Totally Fruit Sweetened
I’m a sucker for Jello. It’s got to be a texture thing. There’s practically nothing else quite like it. Remember Knox Blocks? Those super-gelatinous cubes of jello that have been so stiff you could shake them? One particular of my favorites. It is gotta’ be the kid in me.
What I do not love, though, is all the artificial sweeteners. Or the sugar. Enter unflavored gelatin….you can do so numerous fun issues with it. I use it to stabilize sugar-no cost frostings, for desserts, and it even produces a lighter texture in homemade ice cream.
Right here, I’ve produced an anti-oxidant rich whipped gelatin that’s totally fruit sweetened. And it only has 4 ingredients. This isn’t your ordinary jello – it is light, airy, and melts in your mouth.
Joe gave it the thumbs up, too. When I asked him if he liked it he looked at me attempting to hide his smile and stated, “I ate the complete bowl, didn’t I?”
Use any pasteurized no sugar added apple juice you like. I use Central Market’s Natural Apple Juice – it’s fresh pressed, not from concentrate, unfiltered and practically has a cider tang. Apples contain a substantial volume of pesticides, so I constantly purchase natural.
This recipe is from my book. (Have you purchased a copy yet? If not, you truly really should!) I don’t have the stomach for heavy-duty recipe advancement appropriate now and got a massive craving for this dessert as I was walking via the grocery shop. I decided to go ahead and share this 1 with you.
I topped my gelatin with stevia sweetened whipped cream. If you want to retain it dairy-no cost, consider my raw cashew cream. (I cannot stand cashews appropriate now…bizarre pregnancy food aversions.)

If you have a Vita-Mix or other brand of higher-powered blender, you can add the gelatin mixture and final 1/two cup of apple juice, improve the speed to high and the gelatin will whip correct in the blender. No need to have to refrigerate and whip 30 minutes later. Simple-peasy! Thank you, Kelly from The Spunky Coconut for sharing this with me!
