Homemade Jello Cups | Real Food RN

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

  • Pour fresh juice and kombucha into a medium bowl
  • In a mason jar add 1/3 cup cold water and 1 Tbsp gelatin, stir until combined. It will thicken

  • Add the 1/3 cup hot water to the jar and stir. This will thin it out
  • Pour contents of jar into the juice mixture
  • Stir and pour into individual gelatin cups
  • Add fresh fruit to the cups if you desire
  • Place in refrigerator for at least 1 hour before eating
  • This recipe makes approximately 6 (8oz) gelatin cups, depending if you add fruit
