SPOOKY CHIA SEED MANGO JELLO

Recipe by Eileen Delpiano, Executive Chef

This recipe uses natural fruit juice, chia seeds and gelatin. It's so much healthier than the packet Jello. It's easy to make and is a novel dessert.

Ingredients
4 cups of good quality, unsweetened fruit juice (here, we've used mango orange, but any 100% fruit juice will do)
1 and a half – 2 tablespoons gelatin – 2 tablespoons gives a firm set
1 and a half tablespoons of black or white chia seeds

Method
Put the chia seeds into 2 cups of fruit juice, stir occasionally to prevent them sticking together. Heat the remaining two cups of the juice on the stove and bring to a boil. Pour into a medium size bowl and gradually add the gelatin, stirring for one minute until the gelatin is thoroughly dissolved.



Add the rest of the juice/chia seed mix. Stir occasionally until the chia seeds stay evenly dispersed through the fruit juice. Chill until set – allow at least 1 hour. 
Here, we've added plastic spiders to the mix (some were added at the outset, then after a half hour while the jello was setting).
