How to Make Homemade Jello That’s Healthy and Delicious!

Sharing is caring!

Make homemade jello that's healthy & delicious with these jello recipes. So many flavors to choose from and only healthy ingredients!!

Do you like Jell-O? If I'm being honest, I have to admit that I have never really been a fan of Jell-O.

Unless, of course, it was covered with a GIANT spoonful of whipped cream. My grandma would always make Jell-O and I would smother it in Cool Whip.

Not the healthiest, but good memories. Even though it's not my favorite, my kids love Jell-O, so today I wanted to share how to make homemade Jell-O that's healthy and delicious.

If you check out the ingredient label of your Jell-O, you will find some scary ingredients including, gelatin from unknown sources, maltodextrin, aspartame, not to mention the lovely food dyes.

Gelatin from healthy animals (I use Great Lakes brand) is great for inflammation, allergies, digestion, hair, skin, nails, teeth… The list goes on and on.

Not only can you reap the many health benefits of gelatin with your homemade Jell-O, it is super easy and quick to make. I love this how to video from Mama Natural that shows you how to make your own Jell-O in basically about two minutes.
