2 Homemade Fresh-Fruit Jelloes: Very Berry and Peach & Nectarine

Posted by Didi Gorman on

Looks like cake, doesn’t it?

My latest fruit endeavors have resulted in the exquisite fruit jelloes you see in the pictures.

My idea was to use FRESH fruit to make a summery, light, living dessert (yes, that’s a thing), and so I came up with the ‘Very Berry’ and ‘Peach & Nectarine’ jelloes.

I chose berries, peaches, and nectarines as they impart flavor to the gelatin. For the same reason, I recommend using very ripe fruit, as it will naturally sweeten the unflavored gelatin.

Also, aesthetically speaking, I think serving in clear glass is a great idea, isn’t it?

Without further ado, here is the recipe.

Sweetened by: fruit and stevia

Special equipment: sharp knife (a cake server is optional)

Preps: 15 minutes (chill time: 3 hours)
Serves: 5-6

You will need:
For the Very Berry Jello: 1 cup fresh ripe raspberries + 1 cup fresh ripe blueberries
For the Peach & Nectarine Jello: 3 very ripe peaches pitted and diced + 2 very ripe nectarines pitted and diced

For either jello all the following:
4 sachets unflavored gelatin powder (4 tbsp.)
3 sachets stevia powder (or to taste)
1 cup room temperature water
1 cup warm water
A few squeezes fresh lemon

How to make it:
1. Pour room temperature water into a bowl. Sprinkle the gelatin powder onto the water and stir well. Gelatin will start to dissolve and thicken.
2. Add warm water and stir.
3. Add stevia powder and stir until all gelatin and stevia have dissolved.
4. Splash some lemon over the mixture. Stir.
5. Add the fruit. Stir well. Fruit should be mostly submerged under the liquid. But don’t worry if some sticks up a little.
6. Cover and put in the fridge for 3 hours.
7. Just before serving, cut the jello with a sharp knife like a slice of cake. Scoop the jello out of the bowl using a cake server, if you have one.

Time to enjoy the fruit of our labor (pun intended!), and I will take this opportunity to wish you a beautiful weekend,
