Are you looking to add a festive, fun, treat to your 4th of July picnic? These kid-friendly, blueberry gelatin cups are sure to be a favorite, and the kids will be asking for seconds before they’re done with their first cup (we experienced this in our taste testing group).
These gelatin cups are made with real, whole fruit; gluten-free, bone-building gelatin, and raw, unprocessed honey. No boxed gelatin needed.
The sweetness of these gelatin cups may vary due to size and ripeness of fruit. Do a quick taste test once your gelatin has reached room temperature. If gelatin is not sweet enough for your liking, just reheat and add additional honey. For more delicious gelatin recipes, check out our book, Eating Pure in a Processed Foods World®.
Place 4 cups blueberries and 2 cups water in a medium saucepan. Cover. Low boil for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. While cooking blueberries, sprinkle gelatin over remaining 1 cup cold water in a small bowl. Let sit 3 minutes. Pour cooked fruit mixture through a fine sieve or cheesecloth to remove seeds. Place strained juice back into saucepan. Add honey and gelatin mixture. Cook over medium-high heat 2 minutes until gelatin is dissolved. Cool to room temperature. Pour gelatin into cups and refrigerate until fully set. Top with whipped cream and fresh blueberries.
VARIATION: Replace blueberries with strawberries. When using strawberries, use very ripe fruit and quarter berries to make a full cup.
