Ingredients

  • 4 cups cranberry or cran-raspberry juice
  • 2 packages unflavored gelatin
  • 2 cups mixed fresh raspberries and blueberries
  • 2 cups fresh strawberries, cut into ½ inch pieces
  • 1 cup blackberries, halved if large
  • 1 cup roughly chopped toasted California walnuts
  • 1 cup non-fat Greek yogurt, for serving
  • 8 sprigs of mint, for serving

Preparation

  1. Pour 1/2 cup of cranberry juice into an eight-cup bowl, sprinkle the gelatin over the surface and allow the gelatin to “bloom”, about 5 minutes. Bring the remaining juice to a boil in a small saucepan; pour over the gelatin and stir until the gelatin has dissolved. Add the berries while the juice is still hot and stir.
  2. Rinse 8, one-cup ramekins or molds with cold water and set on a tray. Ladle the jelly, berry mixture into the dishes. Sprinkle with walnuts and refrigerate until set, 4 hours or overnight.
  3. To unmold the jellies, dip the containers in warm water, invert onto a serving plate and garnish with a dollop of non-fat Greek yogurt and a sprig of mint. Serve immediately.
