Homemade Jello and Heart Banana

Valentine's Day is one of my favorite holidays. When my children were growing up; I always tried to feed them healthy foods. I limited the amount of sugar and unhealthy ingredients they ate by making jello, using fruit juices and I served homemade snacks. Now that they are grown, they still eat a healthy diet and do not drink sodas or eat a lot of junk foods. I am sure many of us have wondered if our parenting skills are paying off when our children are young and acting out.  Well, I believe they do! I have seen it more times than not. Sometimes the sweet rewards come a couple of years after they have experienced the world as an adult and before parents experience the rocking chair. 

This tutorial will show how to make Jello using fruit juice and will also show you how to make heart designs in bananas as well as using jello to fill a banana. I have seen writing on bananas and Jello filled fruit, but I have never seen a banana filled with Jello made from fruit juice or heart shapes in the bananas. These are meant to be eaten the first day for best appearance. This instructable was inspired by the Valentine's Contest. Let's get started!

Sorry, but all your recipes look delicious for me. So, if I repeat everytime "delicious", it's your fault for making delicious things everyday! :-)

Thanks MC! Homemade jello is much tastier than store bought. It is not as sweet which makes the natural fruit flavor stand out! I wished we had citrus fruit here but all we have is peach and apricot. It is too cold for citrus here. Again thanks for stopping by and I hope your day is especially bright and beautiful!
Thanks Sunshiine! The same for you! :-)
