Lemon Lime Kefir-ello: Water Kefir Gelatin

by lydia on September 9, 2012

Growing up in the 70’s and 80’s we were served a lot of jello in my home. Albeit, jello from those cheap packages at the grocery store, loaded with food dies and sugar <eh hem>. Nowadays, I relish the days of eating jello as a treat after dinner. I remember all the holidays mint green plastic molds of jello were served, despite the fact they were not the ‘healthiest’ treats, I still think back on my jello eating days with fondness. Now that I am older, and wiser, I’ve learned that jello can be enjoyed in a healthy fashion. How exciting is that?!

Recently a follower of mine, who has now become a friend, posted her dinner on facebook. She mentioned she had made gelatin with water kefir in it. A stroke of genius might I note! Anyway, I just had to have the recipe. I wrote to her and she was perfectly happy to share her recipe for Divine Health. So, thank you Sherry for your exciting gelatin recipe!

Lemon Lime Kefir-ello: Water Kefir Gelatin


  • 1/3 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice + 3T fresh lime juice
  • 2 Tbsp. Great Lakes gelatin
  • 1 2/3 cup lemon lime water kefir (2nd ferment was 2 oz fresh lemon juice with a splash of lime to 14 oz of water kefir, in a sealed bottle for fizz)


  1. Stir gelatin into lemon/lime juice to soften, and warm on stove on low just long enough to completely dissolve. It should never get hot, just body temp.
  2. Gently pour lemon lime water kefir into bowl then stir in gelatin mixture.
  3. Pour into molds and chill a couple of hours.
  4. Mix and match your favorite flavors of this as well! Pair with some lightly sweetened whipped cream or coconut cream.

Wow, kefir jello what a great idea.

Hi Lydia

This is a recipe I’ve been doing for a while. I do it a slightly bit differently. The reason is that I was using up all my kefir grains that were proliferating. I blended up a cup or two of spare grains and added the kefir water Nd gelatin. It’s delicious and probably contains a load of probiotics

I am making this right now. I did try Shelley’s idea, but didn’t blend the grains. Just put them in as mix-ins. I used lemon juice and added a little concentrated grape juice. Looks yummy!

Brilliant! Can’t wait to try it!

My daughter (6) told me the other day, after eating her lemonade jello, that I should make kefir jello. I googled it and your recipe came up first. Can’t wait to try it.
