I have been making jello, healthy gummies, and gelatin desserts for a long time. First I started with the boxes filled with colors and chemical flavorings, but once I had kids I cleaned up my act. Making them from scratch allows for so many nutritional bonuses to be added to them. I have finally perfected the best recipe filled with vitamins, minerals and probiotics. Healthy homemade jello cups, there’s always room for more…


  • 1 cup fresh juice (juice the fruits and vegetables of your choice, in this recipe we used carrot and apples)
  • ½ cup kombucha (here is my recipe) — this adds the probiotics
  • 1/3 cup cold water
  • 1/3 cup hot water
  • 1 Tbsp gelatin — we use this kind
  • Fresh fruit



  • Juice your fruits and/or vegetables
