Not more than 30 minutes after my kids have had breakfast they’re starving. In the name of “I’m having a growth spurt,” I’ve had to keep a ready supply of healthy snacks and treats to curb their insatiable hunger. In partnership with Juicy Juice, we decided to make Mixed Fruit Yogurt Jello cups, perfect for guilt-free snacking.
I’ll admit that I’m very conservative when it comes to giving my kids juice. We only buy Juicy Juice, because the brand uses real fruit and does not include added sugar. Their 100% juice line includes a variety of kid-friendly flavors, and their boxes are easy to pack in kids’ lunches (tip: freeze them the night before to keep lunch items cool). If you prefer Organics, Juicy Juice also offers 3 different lines of organic juices
Mixed Fruit Yogurt Jello Recipe
My kids love to help me cook and bake, so I thought this Mixed Fruit Yogurt Jello recipe would be perfect for them to assist with. The recipe only uses 4 ingredients including Juicy Juice 100% juice, unflavored gelatin, plain yogurt, and heavy cream. Be sure to pick up your kids’ favorite fruits and some whipped cream to top these Mixed Fruit Yogurt Jello cups!
- 3 ounces Unflavored gelatin
- 1 cup Juicy Juice 100% Juice
- 1/2 cup Plain yogurt
- 1/2 cup Heavy whipping cream
Boil juice in a pot
Empty the contents of the gelatin into a medium bowl
Pour the boiling water over the gelatin and whisk until completely dissolved. Set aside to cool down to warm room temperature; about 30 minutes
Allow yogurt and cream to warm to room temperature
When the gelatin is at room temperature, whisk in the yogurt and cream until combined
Divide the mixture evenly into glasses and refrigerate until set, 2 to 3 hours or overnight
Garnish with fresh fruit and whipped cream, if desired
The recipe itself is simple enough to prepare and takes about 20 minutes. However, these Yogurt Jello cups have to set for 4 hours, so plan accordingly.
