Description

Got sparkling cider or champagne? Make this festive dessert. Plan ahead—you’ll need time for this to chill before serving.

Ingredients

  • 3 Tablespoons Unflavored Galatin Powder
  • 2 cups Cold Water
  • 1 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1-½ cup Cold Sparkling Apple Cider (or Champagne)
  • 1-½ cup Cold Lemon-lime Soda (or Ginger Ale)
  • ½ cups Pomegranate Arils (seeds)

Preparation

In a medium saucepan, sprinkle gelatin over cold water; rest for 2 minutes. Bring mixture to a boil and stir until gelatin is fully dissolved. Remove from heat and add sugar; stir until completely dissolved.

Stir in cider and soda. Pour mixture into a bowl and chill for 1-2 hours, until it thickens but doesn’t set completely.

Stir in pomegranate arils and stir to evenly distribute. Pour into molds or ramekins that have been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Chill until firm, at least 4 hours. Unmold to serve.

Inspired by a recipe from Hello, Jell-O! by Victoria Belanger.

Hi Eugenia – Yes, you eat the pom seeds whole (they’re so fun – they burst in your mouth). I’ve never tried other fruit, but feel free to use whatever fruit your family would like.

This looks amazing, but I’m wondering about the pomegranate seeds… Do you eat them whole? I’m guessing not everyone in my family might like that — have you ever tried using other berries or fruit?

Made this last night and it was amazing! I made it with sparkling apple cider and ginger ale, with blueberries instead of pomegranate. I loved the pop of the fruit and the jello tasted amazing. So easy to make, too!
