This is my Nana's recipe, and a favorite among the families. It's sooo easy and yummy! It could work as a side dish, a dessert, or a snack. You can make it in a nice jello mold or put it in a 2 quart or 3 quart dish. I made it in a 3 quart dish (9x13) dish here and used alphabet cookie cutters for my children's initials. They really liked this and wanted to pick out other letters to cut out their own jello. You can also try different fruits and jello flavors if you like. This is another good way to incorporate more fruit into your child's diet in a fun and yummy way!
1 large or 2 small boxes of instant peach jello (use sugar free if you need to)
1 large can peach slices (you can use the kind in syrup or juice. I like the juice one so I don't have added sugars)Directions
Using a glass measuring cup, at least 2 cups, drain the juice from the peaches can into it and then dump the peaches in a blender or food processor. Add enough water to the peach juice to make 2 cups of liquid. If you don't have a glass measuring cup, just measure out the liquid and put it into a microwave safe bowl. Add jello powder to the juice/water mixture. Put jello liquid into microwave for 2 minutes on high. Stir liquid to dissolve jello powder into it a little bit. Pour the jello/juice/water mixture into blender over peaches. I use a spatula to get all the jello powder into the blender. Blend in blender for a few seconds or until there are no big chunks of peaches left. Pour everything into your jello mold or 2 quart or 3 quart dish. Cover and put in fridge until set. Store any leftovers in fridge.
