What happens when you put Jell-O in an ice cream maker?
Once the question entered my brain, it simply wouldn't leave until I tried it. So I did. And I suggest you do too!
It's easy to make, and it tastes like a Jell-O Slushie. I say this as a good thing. It's almost like Jell-o met and had a baby with Italian ice: a thick, viscous, sweet, slushy baby.
To make it, all you need is a pack of jell-o, and an ice cream maker.

Step 1: Step 1: Prep and Make the Jell-o
First off: if your ice cream maker has a drum that requires freezing, do that. Sometimes you need to chill it for several hours. Follow the instructions per the manufacturer suggestion.
Next, make the jell-o. It can be instant or the slower cooked kind. Prepare and chill per the instructions on the box.
Step 2: Put the Jell-o in the Ice Cream Maker
Once the jell-o is set, put it in the ice cream maker. I churned for 18 minutes. It progressed from jell-o ish to having slushy bits, to a very slushy yet firm mixture, kind of with the texture of sorbet.
Step 3: Remove From the Ice Cream Maker
Remove the jell-o from the ice cream maker. Mine came out in an impressive, clean unit.
Step 4: Transfer to Serving Dishes and Enjoy
You can eat it right away, or store it in either the fridge or freezer. It will get soft in the fridge (but will retain a slight slushiness) and it will become hard, like frozen italian ice, in the freezer.
