Homemade Jello Recipe with Rose Juice

If you have never tasted a jello you ACTUALLY really enjoyed, you’re not alone! But it doesn’t have to be that way anymore. Once I discovered I can make my own jello that does not come from a box and isn’t loaded with wayy too much sugar, food dyes, and preservatives, I felt like I was on cloud 9! IT IS possible, and what’s even more exciting is that the possibilities are endless!

You may wonder who gets this excited about jello, but very soon, you will! That is, if you make my rose jello recipe. πŸ™‚ I discovered the magical product of gelatin powder, and what was even more exciting, I found the healthiest kind! Gelatin powder from grass fed, pasture raised cows. (WHAT?!) I have never really gotten into collagen powder, but was always mesmerized by all the benefits it claims to have. What’s even more exciting is that gelatin powder does that same thing, only I can play around with the flavors.

So let’s recap for a second, a delicious, healthy dessert, that is good for your skin, bones, joints, hair and nails, add that with a remarkable Mediterranean exotic flavor that will have everyone who tastes it, (including kids) asking for seconds? You can count me in! My 1 year old is obsessed, and it makes this mama very pleased!

I do have to say that finding rose juice can be challenging if you don’t have any Mediterranean markets near you, but it is definitely worth the hunt if you do!

The only way to understand what I am talking about is to try it for yourself. I would lovee to hear your thoughts, and if you have an instagram account, please tag me (@cookingwithrips) so I can see all your beautiful creations! I genuinely love and enjoy seeing those posts, they make my day! πŸ™‚

You can make this jello in any mold you desire (or you can use this one), so have fun with it and enjoy!

Prep Time: 5 minutesRest (Refrigeration): 3-4 hours
Serves: 6-8Total Time: 4 hours and 5 minutes
Ingredients
2 tbsp grass fed, pasture raised, unflavored gelatin powder (I love this brand!)
4 cups rose juice divided into (3 1/2 cup and 1/2 cup)--I used a brand called Premium Fresh
2 tbsp organic sugar

Optional-1-2 tsp edible dried rose petals or rose buds (such as this one) for garnish
Optional- This jello mold
Instructions
1. In a small bowl, place gelatin powder and 1/2 cup a rose juice. Stir and let it set for 5 minutes.
2. In a medium saucepan over medium heat add 3 1/2 cups of rose juice and sugar and heat until
small bubbles just begin to form.
3. Turn heat off and add the mixture with the gelatin into the hot mixture. Stir until the
gelatin has dissolved. Let the mixture cool for about 10 minutes then pour into a jello mold, or
any desired container of choice. Refrigerate for 4-5 hours.
4. When ready to serve, if using a jello mold, add a flat large plate (like a sheet pan) with hot water
and place the top portion of the jello mold in it (without opening it) for about 2 minutes. Then,
flip the mold onto a large serving plate and gently open the lid of the jello mold. Garnish with
dried rose petals and serve.

Hello and welcome to my site! My name is Rips and I am thrilled to share my passion with you! I am just a girl who loves to bake and cook. It’s one of my favorite things to do and is rewarding in so many ways! It teaches me to be present and helps me relieve stress. I grew up watching both my parents cook the most delicious food you could possibly imagine! Cooking healthy food for each other was something we did for the ones we cared about. Shortly after, I picked up on that habit. I come from a Mediterranean background and I bring that to a lot of my recipes with lots of modern adaptations. I have been baking and cooking for over 15 years and truly find the most joy in it! I also recently wrote and self published my first recipe book called Ripsy's Recipe's on Amazon (I will link below). Ripsy's Recipes has some amazing healthy recipes with gluten free and vegan options that everyone can enjoy. I really wanted to create an easy to follow, non intimidating healthy recipe book for you to love. It truly is my go-to for quick, healthy, easy, delicious meals! The best part of making food is I get to eat it and feed my loved ones. I am very mindful of the ingredients I use in my recipes; at the same time; I still like to indulge in dessert! My dessert recipes are lower in sugar than in any recipe or store bought dessert you will ever find (and they taste amazing). As a result, my family and I get to enjoy it without the guilt. My greatest joy comes from sharing what I make with the people I care about most, and now, you will have access to that too. I hope you try my recipes and love them as much as my family and I do! Namaste Friends!
