One of my family’s favorite treats is really quite simple. It’s a homemade gelatin dessert that is just about the easiest sweet treat I can think of! And, with only two ingredients, you can pull together this refreshing summer dessert in just minutes!
Our favorite way to make this homemade gelatin recipe is to use RW Knudsen’s® Just Tart Cherry Juice. RW Knudsen prides themselves on being a better for you option and each 8oz serving contains 100% undiluted juice and a full serving of fruit! I make all of my gelatin desserts with their organic juices because I believe it’s a better option for myself and my family. And the best part is, I don’t have to go far to find it — RW Knudsen can be found at my local Walmart!
The calendar hanging in my kitchen shows that the school year is coming to an end and my kids are beyond ecstatic. Each day, they arrive home from school and gleefully cross off another day with a thick, black marker. I have to admit, I am very happy for them. Even though they may not believe me, I still remember how exciting the last few days of school were when I was their age.
However, every year, I’m always caught off guard with how quickly summer gets here. For some reason, I always imagine a slow, lazy transition into the summer, but in reality, it is anything but slow and lazy! Instead, the last few remaining school days are always jam-packed with school trips, recitals, and field days. These past two weeks have flown by so fast, I have barely had a second to catch my breath!
So, whenever our schedules get a bit too crazy, I try to plan super simple dinners that can be made with little to no prep work. Things like easy-to-grill chicken or fish and lots of fresh vegetables fill our dinner menus. And, if my kids are really lucky, I’ll even make them an easy little dessert, especially if I can make it quickly!
