Watermelon has been all over the places lately and for good reason, it’s ultra-hydrating and the perfect base for my homemade gelatin. Not only that but a great way for me to walk down memory lane.

Growing up my momma bear would make these gelatin cups with fresh fruit and fresh fruit juice. The best part is she would drizzle condensed milk on top.

It was like the perfect bite.

I could literally polish off two or three cups in one sitting.

They were so good and these watermelon gelatin cups taste even better and are so good for you.

I like using beef gelatin as a base cause it gives us that wiggle action and also cause it improves gut health, our digestion and lowers join pain.

ALSO, cause you know this girl here is all about maintaining a great mood, beef gelatin also helps on this front. OH and improves our sleep quality.

Who knew, that watermelon gelatin could be so good for you…! ..?


I love making these on Sunday for meal prep so I can enjoy them throughout the week. Happy, happy girl.

Oh and then sometimes when I’m feeling the need for condensed milk, I add some coconut yogurt with a little bit of watermelon juice mixed in.

I love using my little weck jars to make these in.

There you have it babes, a simple and delicious snack or dessert made with good for you ingredients.

3 cups of watermelon juice, see notes

1 cup of vanilla nut milk, I used Ripple Dairy Free Plant Based Milk

3 tablespoons of lime juice

3 tablespoons of Beef Gelatin, I used Vital Proteins

I/2 cup of  sparkling lemon water, I used Spindrift Lemon Sparkling Water

Cubed watermelon to top

Coconut yogurt, I like using The Coconut Cult 


In a large saucepan add all of the ingredients but the sparkling water.

Stir and let sit for about five minutes to let the gelatin bloom.

Then turn on the heat to medium-low heat, stir for about 5-8 minutes.

Let cool and stir in the sparkling water, then pour into your little jars and place in the fridge for 4 hours or overnight.

When ready to eat, add the watermelon and a dollop of coconut yogurt.



You can make your own watermelon juice, by blending up 4-5 cups of cubed watermelon and then pass through a fine sieve. Or you can buy cold pressed watermelon juice if you like. I buy mine when I am feeling lazy at my local Whole Foods or at any local juice place.

Hi! I'm Andrea. A girl who loves her chocolate as much as her greens.

  1. Love these so much! And I was pleasantly surprised to read about the benefits of beef gelatine, I use it interchangeably with a vegetarian alternative as I don’t eat pork. Good to know, thank you!

  2. Oh these sound just perfect! My kids have never had jelly because I refuse to buy the packet stuff and haven’t tried out making my own yet. I am so excited to whip these up for them, they will just love them!!

    1. oh i do hope you are able to make these for them. my mom would buy powered gelatin and make it herself but this is not only so MUCH better but also good for you.
