Since I crave cold, slidy things...

Going to try this one later...

Applesauce Gelatin Snacks

What You Need:

4 (1/4oz.) envelopes unflavored gelatin
1 C banana, mashed
2 C 100% natural cherry fruit juice
1 C all natural applesauce

How to Make It:

Place the gelatin powder into a large mixing bowl.
Add the mashed bananas and mix together until completely combined.
Pour the juice into a saucepan and place over medium heat.
Fold in the applesauce and allow mixture to come to a rapid boil.
Stir in the banana gelatin mixture.
Continue cooking and stirring constantly for 4 minutes or until the gelatin has completely dissolved.
Pour the mixture into a large rectangle baking pan.
Cover and refrigerate 2 to 3 hours or until firm.

This is a wonderful snack to give to toddlers. Use their favorite juice just be sure it’s a 100% natural. (

P.S. Got a Neti pot... love it... but this infection is big & bad. Now I have a horrible bronchial cough on top of not being able to breathe or talk. At least the headaches are gone. Please pray for my sustenance.

** Edit: I made the gelatin snacks using grape juice, and a banana that wasn't as ripe as it could have been. My assessment is that it tastes like those fruit leather packets you can get in the health-food section. Not bad, definitely fruity, and semi-sweet. It would indeed be a PERFECT snack for a toddler, especially if you'd not let yours get a massive white-sugar-addicted sweet tooth yet. I'm going to try it with a different juice, too, and see if that makes it any different.
