Grape Gelatin with Plums


We have been obsessed with gelatin lately. We made this grape gelatin with plums (above) twice, and the second time was a double batch. Today I’m making more using lemon ginger tea! Gelatin has 9 grams of protein per tablespoon, and with no added sugar, this is a healthy treat.Do you make your own gelatin treats? What flavor do you make?

Grape Gelatin with Plums

1 cup water, just off the boil
2 tbsp gelatin
2 cups grape juice (I use Knudsen Organic Just Concord)
a squeeze of lemon juice
Optional: a few drops of stevia
fruit for garnish

  1. Pour the water (just off the boil) into a glass measuring cup with a spout.
  2. Add the gelatin and whisk until completely combined.
  3. Pour the hot liquids to a glass dish with a lid.
  4. Add grape juice, stevia (if using) and lemon juice. Gently stir to combine.
  5. Refrigerate until set.
  6. Scoop into glasses and top with sliced ripe plums.

Here is another gelatin-like treat using agar:
Pumpkin Chai Bars

    Yes! We have been making ours more like the old “Knox Blox” we had when we were kids, about four cups liquid to 3-4 tbs gelatin. We have been using herbal teas with stevia and honey. Peppermint chamomile is our favorite with roobios and Asian pear a close second. The light flabors are great in the summer. And the “blocks” are great for the little ones to carry around. We are trying your version tomorrow!

    I have your dairy free ice cream book and Im hoping to make some of the recipes now that it is getting warmer here in Florida. One question, for the gelatin can I use the Porcine? that is the one I have in the pantry. I also have the hyrdolysate in the green can but I know that won’t work as a thickener. Just wanted to confirm :) thanks!

      Thanks for buying my book! You can use any gelatin that is for thickening, like for making Jello. You’re correct, the collagen hydrolysate won’t give the same effect :-)
