Finger Jello Made with Fruit Juice and Knox Gelatin

Sharing is caring!

Finger jello is a favorite treat of my crew, even now that the boys are bigger. It's fun food. We like to use the Knox gelatin finger jello recipe, so we can use the fruit juice of our choice. If you want to make finger jello without gelatin, try substituting agar agar. During apple season, we make apple cider gelatin, which is quite yummy.

Easy finger jello recipe based on Knox blocks. Make it with your choice of fruit juice and gelatin or gelatin substitute.

If you want to make different shapes, you can pour your gelatin into silicon molds. (Just don't use the same molds that you use for soap. Not yummy!) Another option is to cut across the pan one direction, and then make the cross cut at an angle to make diamond shapes. It's fine to use a little more gelatin powder if you want a sturdier finger jello. (For instance, using a quarter cup of gelatin instead of 3 tablespoons plus a teaspoon.)

Immune Boosting Herbs in Finger Gelatin

Ingredients:

  • 4 envelopes (1 ounce) unflavored gelatin  (That's 3 tablespoons plus one teaspoon of bulk gelatin) Knox Gelatin is readily available at most grocery stores. Great Lakes Gelatin is certified Kosher. You could also substitute agar agar.
  • 1 cup fruit juice, cold
  • 3 cups fruit juice, heated
  • 2 tablespoons honey, optional

Directions:

Prepare hot ingredients – If using juice with herbs, place juice and herbs in medium sauce pot and simmer for 10 minutes. If using tea, brew tea and let steep for 10 minutes, covered, then mix with juice in sauce pot and heat to boiling.

Sprinkle gelatin over cold juice in large bowl; let stand 1 minute. Add hot juice and stir until gelatin dissolves completely, about 5 minutes. Stir in honey if desired. Pour into 13x9x2 inch pan. (Half batches can be molded in a bread pan or 8×8 pyrex pan.)

Refrigerate until firm, about 3 hours. To serve, cut into 1 inch cubes. Makes about 9 dozen.

  1. Happy to find your site
    I had already figured out a recipe for jello with fruit juice that was low sugar with stevia and plain gelatin.! Don’t want the sugar but the gelatin is really good for my arthritis and my skin and my joints so I’m learning new ways to eat it thank you!

    1. You’re welcome, Charlotte.

      Plain gelatin is more budget friendly, but it you need/want more collagen in your diet for your health, you may want to look into collagen peptides, too. The powder dissolves in any drink (although it’s easiest to dissolve in warm drinks like coffee or tea.)

      Old fashioned homemade chicken broth is another option, and a good way to use all of the animal.

  2. These are great! I love making these for our granddaughters and cutting them into shapes using cookie cutters. I use juice with no added sugar, like V-8 strawberry banana juice (which has hidden vegetables, great for my picky little girls), orange juice, or 100% grape juice. They request these!
