Orange Mango Gel-O (Paleo)
(Originally published 27 June 2016 at https://cornfreehippie.com)
This gel-o is a firm one that blends citrus and tropical flavors with gelatin to make a simple and yummy healthy snack or dessert.
I find that the juice is sweet enough to not require any sweetener, but if you like a sweet gelatin dessert, then I would recommend a sweetener that is complimentary to orange and mango flavors.
Have fun with the recipe and the kids by experimenting with cookie cutter shapes or by using fun molds.
2 oranges freshly squeezed or about 3/4 cup orange juice, freshly squeezed
1/2 cup mango, cut into bite-sized pieces
3 Tbsp. grass fed gelatin (Great Lakes, red bottle)
Heat orange juice & mango on stove until hot. Add sweetener if using followed by gelatin. Blend well so that gelatin does not clump. Pour into a loaf pan. Refrigerate 1 hour.
Remove from refrigerator, cut into squares & enjoy this healthy treat.
