About this Recipe

By: Christina Hills

I loved Jello as a kid!  My mom use to make it for me in the 70’s all the time.  As an adult I still like Jello, but don’t want the added sugar.

So here is my recipe for home made lemonade jello.  I like to use honey instead of sugar, but if you prefer sugar or any other sweetener use what you prefer.

I bought the box of envelopes, but you can use a bigger box of Knox Gelatine and just measure it out.

salmon with tomatoes and olives
