Rainbow jelly is a colourful twist on a party favourite. Adding smoothie to this beautiful rainbow jelly pots recipe not only gives them a really fruity flavour but also makes sure that this party food also has some vitamins and goodness. Our rainbow jelly pots are a good way to make sure your kids are getting one of their five a day by disguising them as a sweet treat.
- 3 x 135g packets jelly (we used pineapple, raspberry and lime)
- 3 x 180ml cartons smoothie (we used orange, mango and pineapple, apple and blackcurrant and gorgeous green apple)
- 150ml double cream, whipped or Greek yogurt
You will need
- 1 packet rainbow and unicorn decorations (we bought ours from Sainsbury’s but any supermarket should stock them)
- Break the raspberry jelly into cubes, add 300ml of boiling water, microwave for 1 min, stir to melt. Add apple and blackcurrant smoothie and 150ml cold water. Stir to combine.
- Pour into the base of 6 or 12 small glass or plastic cups. Pop in the freezer for 20 minutes or until set so that when the next layer is placed on the top they don’t mix and the colours merge.
- Break up the pineapple jelly and repeat process as above, using the mango and pineapple smoothie. Pour over the red layer, trying to make sure the layers are the same thickness. Pop in the freezer for 20 minutes.
- Repeat with lime jelly and apple smoothie. Pour over final layer and chill until set.
- To serve, dollop on cream or yogurt and top with a unicorn or rainbow decoration. If you want a pop more colour, sprinkle over some hundreds and thousands.
Top Tip for making Rainbow jelly pots
To make these even fruitier, add double the amount of smoothie and no cold water. Vary the flavours as you fancy by trying different smoothie and jelly flavours.
