I love watermelon and I could eat it all day, but I also adore jiggly desserts so when I heard about watermelon gelo, I had to try it! It's easy to make and absolutely yummilicious! It's also vegan, gluten free, pretty healthy, and super refreshing... ahhhh!
*Please note it is more like a dense pudding than jello =)
Step 1: Gather Your Ingredients and Tools
About 9 cups of seedless watermelon chunks (you will need 4 cups once it is puréed)
3 tbsp sugar, maple syrup, agave nectar, or other sweetener (but please don't use the artificial stuff!)
6 tbsp cornstarch
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 tsp ground cinnamon
Blender or food processor
Large fine mesh sieve (or cheesecloth)
Rubber heatproof spatula and/or wooden spoon
Optional garnishes -- get creative!
Roughly chopped pistachios, almonds, or other nuts
Grated semisweet chocolate
Chopped up oreo cookies
