Fruit Jelly Cups

A healthier and homemade alternative to the packet fruit and jelly cups! This has the texture/wobbliness of Aeroplane jelly – and you can customise it however you like with different types of canned fruit and fruit juices!

I usually have a tin of fruit in the pantry – peaches, pears, fruit salad etc as a back up for when I don’t have fresh fruit at home/the fruit has gone manky, or if I just feel like tinned fruit with yoghurt, whipped cream or icecream, since it is consistently delicious!

You can use different flavour combinations. With one of these batches I used a 825 gram can of Fruit Salad and topped up with tropical fruit juice, and another batch I used a 560 gram can of pitted Lychees and topped up with coconut water.

Flavoured jelly packets usually state not to use pineapple, kiwifruit or paw paw or the jelly will not set. Note that the canned fruit salad has a few pineapple pieces – the jelly still sets (it is slightly sloppier than without the pineapple) however you will need to leave it in the cups (it is too sloppy for moulds – if you want to use moulds use the Fruit Juice Jelly Lollies recipe).

You can pour this into individual cups, or into one big bowl and scoop out pieces.

You can use any type of canned fruit, and can also use fresh fruit instead of the canned fruit.


 
Strain the juice away from the canned fruit into a separate jug.
 
Place the fruit into cups.
 
 
Add the drained juice…
 
 
 …+ additional juice of choice (1000 grams total), honey and gelatine into bowl. 
 
 
Mix – 4 minutes/50 degrees/Speed 2.
 
 
Pour jelly mixture into cups… 
(note: the moulds don’t work – just use cups!)
 
…and set in fridge for a few hours.

Fruit Juice Jelly Lollies

These are sooooo delicious and easy to make! I can eat one batch in one sitting!! You can use any type of fruit juice and make these look really funky with different types of moulds. I find this works best with silicon moulds as they just pop out without requiring any cooking sprays.

 
Add all ingredients into bowl
 
 
 Heat 4 minutes/50 degrees/Speed 2
 
Pour into silicon moulds
 
 
 …and place in fridge for a few hours to set.
 
TIP: put the moulds on a chopping board in the fridge so it sits flat and is easier to transfer without spillage
 
 
(L) with cooking spray, (R) without cooking spray
Don’t bother with greasing the silicon moulds with cooking spray!! They come out the same, and has a much smoother finish without it!

Notes

TO STORE: Place in an airtight container. You can leave this on the bench for a few days, however these last a few weeks in the fridge. ***The jelly lollies have a crunchier/firmer texture when kept in the fridge, and a wobbly/softer texture when kept out on the bench.
