Method

  1. Put the leaf gelatine into a bowl and cover with cold water. Leave for a few mins until soft and floppy. Meanwhile, gently heat the smoothie in a saucepan without boiling. Take off the heat. Lift the gelatine out of the water, squeeze out the excess water, then add it to the smoothie pan. Stir well until smooth, then pour into 12 moulds, pots or glasses, or use 24 shot-glass-sized pots. Chill for at least 1 hr to set.
  2. For perfect mini scoops of ice cream, dip a tbsp measuring spoon into a cup of hot water, then shake off the excess. Scoop the ice cream, dipping the spoon in the hot water each time. Serve each smoothie jelly topped with ice cream.

I thought it looked and tasted great. Unfortunately the kids didn't. Guess they are too used to sugary muck.

It was a disaster. I got banana & strawberry Innocent smoothie but It never set. I couldn't get leaf jelly so I bought Dr Oetker powder jelly. I added more jelly powder but no, it didn't work :(

These were fantastic for my son's 1st birthday party. Will make them again.

I made these together with my 10-year old daughter - I figured it would be a perfect recipe to make with a child: easy, yummy and pretty healthy too. I was ready to post a cross comment about the recipe as the jellies didn't set, so I thought the gelatine/smoothie ratio was way off. Then I realized there was pineapple in the smoothie base I used. I can confirm that pineapple prevents jelling....
However, we will try it again. This time without pineapple or kiwi :-)

A very tasty recipe. I added some fruit to the jelly to make it that extra bit more lovely.
