Juice Jello (Paleo, AIP, GAPS)

  • Author: Eileen Laird
  • Total Time: 4 hours 5 minutes
  • Yield: 8 servings



  1. Pour 1 cup of juice into a large measuring cup or bowl, and add gelatin powder. Let sit for 1 minute to let it bloom. (It will turn into a gel that will dissolve more easily in the next steps).
  2. Pour the remaining juice into a saucepan & heat over medium heat until warm.
  3. Transfer the cold juice-bloomed gelatin mixture to the saucepan and stir until evenly blended.
  4. Pour the jello into a pyrex dish or small ramekins. Cover and refrigerate until set (usually about 4 hours).  In the photo above, I used a small cookie cutter after it was set to create the little hearts.


  1. Conventional juice contains pesticide residue, which is why I recommend organic. As for the gelatin, you can buy conventional Knox gelatin from the grocery store, but if you make jello regularly, that’s actually an expensive choice for a low quality product. Grass-fed gelatin is available in bulk online. I use the brand Great Lakes (red can).
  2. If you’re lucky enough to have a fruit tree in your back yard, and want to make jello with fresh-pressed juice, only heat 1 cup of your juice and keep the rest cold, to preserve raw juice enzymes. Storebought juice has already been pasteurized, so this isn’t a concern, and heating more of the juice makes a smoother texture of jello.
