These take at least an hour or two to set in the fridge, so plan to make them a little in advance of when you want to serve them.


  • 1 cup pulp-free orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon raw or local honey
  • 2 packets (or about 2 tablespoons) plain gelatin


  1. Pour 1/2 cup of the juice into a medium bowl. Sprinkle the gelatin over it and let stand for 1 minute.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the remaining cup of juice in a microwave-safe glass or bowl until boiling, about 30-60 seconds.
  3. Pour into bowl with the cold juice. Add the honey and whisk until everything is dissolved, about 30 seconds.
  4. Pour into a silicone mold or an 8×8 baking dish and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or up to overnight.
  5. Cut into squares and store in the fridge in an airtight container. Serve cold.


Use pulp-free juice for the smoothest texture.

You can use store bought juice or squeeze your own. (Strain it with a fine mesh sieve if desired.)

Let the gelatin dissolve in the cold juice first before adding the hot. This helps to avoid clumps of gelatin.

Add powdered probiotics if desired.

Let chill and set in the fridge before trying to cut or remove them from the molds.

Remember that a sick child may not have their normal appetite, so focus on liquids and cuddles and always check in with your doctor.
