Well, yesterday was my daughter's first birthday! Because she hasn't had any type of grain or flour, I had to come up with a creative, tasty way to provide her a candle to blow out. That was how the Jell-O Cupcake was born. I ended up freezing it to give her a cool treat on a 90 degree plus day, and followed it with a layered popsicle.


Agar Jell-O set in cupcake molds, go here to see how
1/2 a ripe banana
4 - 6 raspberries [or berry of choice]

Make jell-o and allow to set in refrigerator until firm. Mash banana and berries, using a fork, until smooth. Place in freezer until cool and a little more firm [20 - 30 minutes, this step is optional but makes for easier "frosting"]. Place banana-berry mixture in a cake decorator tool or just use a knife and "frost" your "cupcake". Serve immediately or lightly freeze for a cool treat.


[all organic]
1/4 c. pureed raspberries
1/4 c. pureed blueberries
1/4 c. pureed strawberries
1/4 c. pureed peaches
1/4 c. pureed apples
Set of popsicle molds

In mold, place first layer of fruit and freeze until just set. Repeat with next layer[s] u
ntil you have reached the point where the popsicle stick will touch the fruit. At this point, add the next layer but only freeze until really cold, not frozen, so that the stick can slide through the
layers. Repeat with until all the layers are completed and the freeze well.

To serve, remove from freezer and then thaw 5 - 10 minutes or run under warm water until popsicles can be removed from mold.
