Dive into summer with this homemade sugar-free jello recipe that’s perfect as a light dairy-free dessert or a nutritious snack. The secret ingredient in this jello recipe leaves it free from artificial sweeteners and synthetic dyes, making it a fantastic choice for a healthy treat.



2 cups water, divided

2 packets plain gelatin

2 scoops Ultima electrolytes, any flavor (see note)


8 drops plant-based yellow food coloring (for lemon flavor)

4 tablespoons coconut whipped cream

Fresh berries

Mint leaves


  1. Combine the gelatin and electrolytes with one cup of cold water in a small glass or stainless-steel mixing bowl. Stir gently until fully dissolved to avoid introducing air bubbles (about 1 minute).
  2. Bring the remaining cup of water to a boil and then pour it over the gelatin mixture. Stir for about 30 seconds.
  3. Carefully pour the mixture into your chosen molds or dishes. For a sheet of jello, use a rectangular baking dish; for individual servings, ramekins or coupe glasses work well. Refrigerate for approximately three hours, or until the jello is firm to the touch. Then garnish as desired.


Modifications for colonoscopy prep: Follow the recipe above to make lemon jello (no red, pink and purple colors). Don’t add any coloring, it needs to be as light and clear as possible. Omit any garnishes.
