These no drip jello popsicles are perfect for hot days, in this fun dessert recipe idea. The fun thing about jello is that it comes in so many fun flavors from Jolly Rancher to blue raspberry and more. You can also make this popsicle jello with fruit for a healthier version. You might even try making this fun dessert recipe with agar instead of jello and fruit for a healthier, vegan, vegetarian option. The sky's the limit to the fun popsicle desserts you can make. The jello keeps the popsicle from running down the stick, as would some agar or grass fed gelatin instead of boxed jello.

Agar, which is also known as agar-agar, is a jelly-like substance that is obtained from algae. Agar was first discovered in the late 1650s or early 1660s by Mino Tarozaemon in Japan, where it is called kanten. Agar-agar is a natural vegetable gelatin counterpart. Agar is white and semi-translucent in color, and sold in packages as washed and dried strips or in powdered form. Agar can be used to make dessert recipes from jellies, puddings, and custard recipes as an alternative to animal based gelatin. Agar is a good alternative for people following vegan or vegetarian diets.

You might not know it, but gelatin is good for your health. While gelatin is not vegan-friendly, there are good sources available that come from grass-fed animals. Some of the benefits have having gelatin in your diet is that it supports skin, hair and nail growth. Gelatin is also good for the joints and can help speed up joint recovery. It can also help tighten up loose skin after having babies. Gelatin is also known to help improve digestion since it naturally binds to water and helps move food more easily through the digestive track. It may even help to improve cellulite. Gelatin is a great source of dietary collagen, which is ironic because it is an ingredient that is too large to be absorbed through the skin, so using skin creams on your skin that contain collagen doesn't make much sense. Gelatin is a good source of protein and can help build muscle. You can make homemade Jello and customize the flavors, add some vitamins and even use water kefir or kombucha as the base for a vitamin and probiotic boost. A few tips to making homemade jello with fruit, jello salad, and the best jello recipe is to never add gelatin powder to recipes with fresh pineapple, kiwi or papaya. As these fruits will inactivate the thickening properties. You also don't want to boil gelatine, as it will lose its thickening ability.
