Pomegranate Jello Recipe

013The perfect treat for a hot summer morning and a sneaky way to get gelatin into you (+ kids). I created this jello while on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D) to heal a chronic case of yeast overgrowth. My kids did this gut healing protocol too, so I had to get creative in the food department 🙂

The B.E.D. protocol avoids all fruit because most fruit contains too much natural sugars, which feeds yeast, bacterial, and viral overgrowth. The only exceptions to this rule are the acidic fruits like lemons, limes, acai, sour green apples, black currants, cranberries, and pomegranates …. hence this recipe.

Pomegranate Jello Recipe

Makes (1) 8″ x 8″ square pan


2 cups pure water

1/2 cup unsweetened pomegranate concentrate

1/2 granny smith apple, chopped

1/2 cup soaked sunflower seeds (optional)

2 Tbs. unflavored gelatin or agar agar flakes (see below)

1 to 1 1/2 tsp. green stevia powder

Pinch of sea salt


Spread apples and seeds in bottom of 8″ x 8″ Pyrex glass dish

Heat pomegranate concentrate, water, and sea salt in a pan on medium heat

Cook until steaming

Pour this liquid over apple and seeds

Slice into squares and serve

Tips & Tricks

  • Make gummier jello by adding 4 Tbs. gelatin – a.k.a. ‘finger jello’
  • For a vegan option, substitute 2 Tbs. agar-agar flakes (or 2 tsp. agar-agar powder) for the gelatin. Agar needs to be brought to a gentle simmer for 3 minutes to dissolve properly.
  • Use cranberry concentrate, or other unsweetened juice, instead of the pomegranate.
  • Top with cultured cream and soaked seeds for a delicious breakfast.
  • On stage 2 of BED? Add in blueberries, blackberries, or other slightly acid fruits.
