Holiday Ribbon Gelatin Recipe (Made with Real Food)

Put down the artificial flavors, colors, and refined sugar! Real gelatin and wholesome food are all that’s required to make this Holiday Ribbon Gelatin Recipe.

 

I love the healthy touch of spinach and tart cherries in this recipe, but most any green or red juice can be substituted in this dish. Just stay away from juices with fresh pineapple, kiwi, or other bromelain-containing fruits. As I learned the hard way, bromelain will prevent your gelatin from setting.

I’d love to see how this dish turned out for you! Tag me on Instagram @superkid__eats as you try this or any of my other recipes.

Red Layer

Instructions

Green Layer

  1. Pour two cups of the apple juice into a food processor or blender. Add the spinach and blend on high for one minute.

  2. Pour the liquid from the food processor/blender into a glass container, using a fine mesh strainer to separate out the spinach. Place the spinach in a paper towel and squeeze out any remaining juice. Set the spinach aside as it won't be needed. (Don't let it go to waste! I recommend adding it to your favorite smoothie recipe.)

  3. You should have about two cups of green apple juice. Pour approximately 1 1/2 cups of the juice into a small saucepan and place over medium high heat.

  4. Add three tablespoons gelatin to the remaining apple juice in the glass container. Stir well and allow to gel.

  5. Add the gelatin/apple juice mixture to the saucepan, bring to a boil, and stir until dissolved.

  6. Pour the hot liquid into a 11.9 x 7.7 inch glass baking dish. Let cool then place it in the refrigerator. Allow it to completely gel (approximately one hour).

White Layer

  1. Pour 1/2 cup of the coconut milk into a glass measuring cup. Add three tablespoons gelatin and stir well. Set aside to gel.

  2. Combine the remaining coconut milk, 1/4 cup maple syrup, and 1 teaspoon vanilla in a small saucepan over medium high heat.

  3. Add the coconut milk/gelatin mixture to the saucepan, bring to a boil, and stir until dissolved.

  4. Pour the contents of the saucepan back into the glass measuring cup. Allow the liquid to cool to room temperature. This will take 45 minutes to 1 hour. While the liquid is cooling, stir approximately every 10 minutes to prevent it from gelling.

  5. When the liquid is completely cooled, slowly pour it over the green layer of gelatin. Return the glass dish to the fridge and allow it to completely gel (approximately one hour).

Red Layer

  1. Combine 1/2 cup of the apple juice with 3 tablespoons gelatin. Stir to combine and allow to gel.

  2. Pour the tart cherry juice into a small saucepan over medium high heat.

  3. Add the apple juice/gelatin mixture to the saucepan, bring to a boil, and stir until dissolved.

  4. Pour the contents of the saucepan back into the glass measuring cup. Allow the liquid to cool to room temperature (45 minutes to 1 hour). Stir approximately every 10 minutes to prevent it from gelling.

  5. When the liquid is completely cooled, slowly pour it over the white layer of gelatin. Return the glass container to the fridge until the gelatin has properly set. Note: It's very important to make sure the red liquid is completely cool before pouring onto the white layer. If not, a layer of coconut milk will rise to the top.

Slice into squares and serve!
