V8 Jelly with Diced Strawberries

 V8 Jelly with diced strawberries
The boys got to taste all sorts of sugary goodness at their 1st birthday party, with Ethan taking a particular liking for jelly! The jelly was blue at the party and he ended up with really bright fluoro green poop the day after that (sorry TMI!!!)!! So obviously that wasn’t very good for him!! I thought I would make the boys a healthier jelly (also for the adults). I love making Nushi’s Jelly Joobies and how it uses V8 Juice (http://thermotwinning.blogspot.com.au/2015/07/healthy-snackspetite-fours.html), so I thought I would use that concept and make it into a jelly with similar ‘wobbliness’ as Aeroplane jelly.
I used diced strawberries as they are in season and really cheap at the moment, but you could use any fruit (however not pineapple, kiwifruit or paw paw as the gelatine will not set).
I used the V8 Forest Fruits flavour with this lot of V8 Jelly, I’m looking forward to try the other flavours!!

30g gelatine powder
1 tsp vanilla bean paste
45 grams agave syrup
5 strawberries

3. Add diced strawberries into 8 small cups.
Distribute diced strawberries into 8 small cups
4. Once finished, pour mixture into cups over the strawberries. I poured it into a measuring jug first as I find the Thermomix jug a bit big to pour into small cups. Place in fridge to set for at least 3 hours.

The jelly turned out amazing and the sweetness was perfect for me. The boys loved it and shared a cup of jelly for their morning tea today. This is a refreshing and healthy snack or dessert perfect for the whole family!!
