Fresh Strawberry & Berry Jelly Recipe (refined sugar free)

Jelly is a childhood favourite, and this fresh fruit jelly, made from scratch, is a refreshing treat that can be enjoyed by all ages. It's super easy to make, and you can serve it as-is, or use in a slice, trifle or other desserts!

This recipe uses frozen fruit - but you could use fresh if available - and Vital Proteins Beef Gelatin available from Emporio Organico, which is 100% natural and brilliant for gut health!

Homemade Strawberry or Mixed Berry Jelly

You will need:

600ml jelly mould 
OR half a dozen small glasses and bowls to set

  • 325ml of water
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons of Vital Proteins Beef Gelatin
  • 1/2 cup of organic rapadura sugar
  • 500g frozen strawberries or mixed berries
  • Juice of one lemon


Before beginning, set some of the fruit aside for decorating the set jellies. 
If using a jelly mould, lightly grease it with a flavourless oil. 
I set mine in a half dozen various sized glasses and bowls, in which case, you won't need to grease them - and they not only look pretty but they are ready to serve! 

You can also set the jelly in a glass storage container and scoop out with a spoon to serve.


Place 1/2 cup of water in a bowl or jug, sprinkle with gelatin, and mix thoroughly to ensure there are no lumps. Set aside.

Pour 200ml of water into a saucepan, and add the sugar. 
Heat gently over a medium heat, stirring occasionally until the sugar has dissolved, then add the fruit.
Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer, stirring occasionally for 5-10mins, until the fruit has completely softened. Break up any remaining pieces of fruit with the back of a spoon, and cook for a few more minutes.

Pour the fruit mixture through a sieve into a heat-proof jug.
Add the lemon juice and stir. 
Add the gelatin mixture, stirring well, then pour into the moulds.

Leave in the refrigerator to set for 2-3 hours, then top with reserved fruit & mint leaves and serve.
