Total Time 30 mins
Servings 1 tray of moulds


  • Measuring cups and spoons, moulds or ice-cube trays, saucepan, fridge.


  • 1 Cup Juice pick something with no added sugar or sweetener grape, red grapefruit, pineapple are nice colours and sweet)
  • 2 Tablespoons of Gelatine
  • 2 Tablespoon manuka or good quality honey.


  • Mix ingredients in pan, mixing constantly until gelatine is completely dissolved.
  • Bring mixture to a boil, about 3-5 minutes.
  • Pour into moulds of choice. Hint: spray lightly with oil first to secure the shape.

Science Lesson: When you dissolve gelatin in the juice, the tiny spaghetti-like proteins within it become entwined, or tangled. As they tangle, they form a mesh of pockets that hold water, honey and other agents added for flavor. After refrigerating, the result is a jiggly solid.
