    Creamy Cherry Jello

    Here we flavor plain gelatin with 100% cherry juice, and stir in creamy yogurt and fresh cherries to make a special treat. Experiment with other fruit juice and fruit combinations.


    • 2 cups unsweetened 100% black cherry juice, divided
    • 1 envelope unflavored gelatin (about 2 1/4 teaspoons)
    • 1-2 tablespoons superfine sugar
    • 1 6-ounce container nonfat cherry or vanilla yogurt (2/3 cup)
    • 1 cup pitted fresh cherries, or thawed and drained frozen cherries, halved or chopped


    Step 1
    Place 1/2 cup cherry juice in a medium bowl. Sprinkle gelatin on top and let stand for 1 minute. 
    Step 2
    Bring the remaining 1 1/2 cups cherry juice to a boil in a small saucepan. Add to the gelatin mixture along with sugar to taste and whisk until the gelatin is dissolved. 
    Step 3
    Whisk in yogurt until combined. Divide among 4 small dishes or ramekins. 
    Step 4
    Stir 1/4 cup cherries into each portion. 
    Step 5
    Refrigerate until set, about 4 hours.
