yogurt jellies

They are quick and easy to make, they taste good, and they are fun to eat. They're not very filling, so they are perfect for a late afternoon snack: they won't fill anyone up before supper!

Use your favorite flavor of frozen fruit juice concentrate. (I used "mixed berry" juice concentrate for our most recent batch.) Be sure to read the label - some fruit juice concentrate is full of sugar and additives. If you're trying to avoid those, look for a concentrate that is 100% juice.

Get the kids to help. They'll enjoy watching the gelatin dissolve. Dropping in the ice cubes is fun too! Be sure to supervise carefully, though, so no one gets splashed by the hot liquid in the pan.

1/2 cup/125 mL water

2 Tbsp/30 mL (2 pouches) unflavored gelatin

1/4 cup/60 mL frozen fruit juice concentrate, undiluted and still frozen

2 ice cubes

1/2 cup/125 mL plain yogurt

In a small saucepan, combine the water and the gelatin. Cook over low heat, stirring, until the gelatin is completely dissolved.
With the pan still on the heat, add the juice concentrate and the ice cubes. Cook and stir until the ice dissolves.
Whisk in the yogurt.
Pour into a square 8 inch pan.
Freeze until set (about 30 minutes).
Cut into squares and eat with your fingers.

If you forget about them and leave them in the freezer for a longer time, they may develop a film of ice. They'll still taste good, though. Just scrape off the ice and enjoy.

You can refrigerate any leftovers for later - but we find that Yogurt Jellies taste best when eaten right away, as soon as they come out of the freezer. That's not a problem, though - we can eat the whole pan in one sitting!

These are a good snack for a hot day.
