Each serving contains only 38 calories and 0 grams of fat.
Things You'll Need
- White grape juice
- Small saucepan
- 4 3-oz. packages flavored gelatin
- Mixing bowl
- 13-by-9-inch baking dish
- Cooking spray
- Flower-shaped cookie cutters
- Seedless grapes
Pour 2 ½ cups white grape juice into a small saucepan. Bring just to a boil over medium heat.
Open the packages of flavored gelatin and pour the contents into a mixing bowl. Add the heated white grape juice and stir until the gelatin is dissolved.
Coat the 13-by-9-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Pour in the gelatin/grape juice mixture. Refrigerate until the gelatin has set, about one hour.
Remove the gelatin from the refrigerator. Use the cookie cutters to cut the gelatin into flower shapes. Make different sizes and shapes, if desired.
Cut seedless grapes in half to make round semicircles. Place a grape half in the center of each gelatin flower. Serve cold.
Tips & Warnings
- Use your favorite flavors of gelatin, or try combining two or more for a more complex taste. Strawberry banana, lemon lime or even strawberry and cherry make great combinations. Add more decorations, if desired. Ice-cream sprinkles and candy work well. You could also add fruit to the gelatin mixture for more organic-looking gelatin flowers. For holidays or other celebrations, use different-shaped cookie cutters. You could make green gelatin Christmas trees or orange gelatin pumpkins for Halloween.
