MYO Jell-O with Kool-Aid

Print Friendly

OK I know a lot of people make their own Jell-O using fruit juice. We don’t always have a lot of extra juice and it is to expensive to buy just to make Jell-O out of, so I use Kool-Aid as I have mentioned before I buy a lot of Kool-Aid when it on sale. If you use Kool-Aid to make Jell-O with then you can have a large variety of flavors. I buy my gelatin in bulk (At bulkfoods.com) so it is a lot cheaper than in the grocery store.

Jell-O with Kool-Aid
2 Tablespoons gelatin
1 cup sugar
1 pack Kool-Aid
4 cups water
Start with the Kool-Aid of choice, sugar, and gelatin.

Add 1 cup of sugar, 2 Tablespoons of gelatin and 1 pack of Kool-Aid in a medium size bowl.

Mix together well.

Add 2 cups of boiling water and stir well until everything is dissolved.

Add two cups cold water, I put ice in my water to help the Jell-O set up faster, put ice in measuring cup and add water to equal 2 cups.

Stir until the ice is all melted.

Put in the fridge to set up, takes about 2 hours.

If you want to make your own Jell-O cups just pour into small reusable containers with lids then put into the fridge to set up.

And you have yummy Jell-O.

If you want a little softer Jell-O just don’t add as much gelatin.

If you are going to use fruit juice just remember 4 cups liquid to 2 Tablespoons of gelatin.

    That’s a great idea! We are empty nesters now so I rarely make jello. My husband isn’t that crazy about just eating jello. But I might have to try it sometime just to see. I also buy kool aid on sale. I like having the lemonade flavor for cleaning purposes. I get tropical punch flavor to make red punch for showers and special occasions like Christmas open house. I just mix a half gallon of koolaid (made up with a cup of sugar), a large can of pineapple juice and a 2 liter of ginger ale. Stir it together in a punch bowl and top with scoops if pineapple sherbet. Everybody loves it.
