We got a little festive today and revisited an old favorite of ours, Yelatin. It's what we call the combination of jell-o (gelatin) and yogurt. We first experimented with it for St. Patricks day and then had fun mixing colors in a fun mold. This year we tried some new egg molds Grandma gave us with much success!
We made two colors but here's the basic recipe...
- .3oz sugar free gelatin dessert (like jell-o) – any flavor
- 1 cup (8oz) boiling water
- 1 cup (227g) fat free plain yogurt
Dissolve the gelatin mix in the boiling water.
Whisk in the yogurt.
Spray the inside of the molds with a bit non-stick cooking spray.
Pour into the 6 egg molds. I used a turkey baster to make it a bit neater.
Refrigerate for about 2 hours until set.
The little guy was totally smitten with them and the pastel colors are just perfect for our Easter weekend. 🙂
Here's the nutritional info based on 6 eggs.

Oh, don't fear the yelatin--its so good! I make it all the time and I absolutely love it. It tastes so much worse for you than it is. And its so fun to say!
jell-o and yogurt? What's not to love?!? ;~)
i saw this pic on your main page and i had to see what the heck it was. i fear the yelatin. sorry. no love for this recipe! LOL
That's exactly what I was asking! Thank you
Julie - that is the whole box. A small box of sugar free jell-o is .3oz. If you had a large box you'd use half.
Is that what you are asking?
How much of a packet is .3 oz of jello mix? Just wondering if doubling (or whatever it would take) would use up what was left.
Thank you for all of your creative ideas!

Much healthier than jelly beans. Happy Easter.
