Strawberry Banana Gelatin with Chia Seeds

I decided to make my Strawberry Banana Gelatin with chia seeds last night and once again, the kids loved it! You can get creative with your own fun mix-ins!  I’ve always loved jello as a kid, but knowing what I know now about its ingredients, I stay away and wanted to create a healthier naturally sweetened version for my kids. This gelatin is super easy to make and seriously delish! Get creative and add in your child’s favorite fruits! With a dollop of light whipped topping, this dish is still way lower sugar than regular jello! Great way to get your kids to meet their recommended fruit intake! 😋

Ingredients:

2T (or 2-.25oz packs) of unflavored gelatin

1.5 cups organic apple juice boiled

1/2cup organic apple juice cold

1 banana sliced

6 large strawberries chopped

2T chia seeds

Directions

  1. in a large mixing bowl, pour in the cold 1/2c of apple juice.
  2. Sprinkle the gelatine over it. Let it set for a couple of minutes while you boil the other 1.5 cups of apple juice.
  3. After its boiled pour over the Apple juice gelatine mixture in the bowl.
  4. Whisk well, couple of minutes.
  5. Now take your fruits and place them in a glass baking dish, I used an 8×8 but any dish around that size will work and if it’s a larger size dish, you may just get thinner pieces.
  6. Pour the apple juice over the fruit.
  7. Add in chia seeds of using. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours. Enjoy!!
