Mango Jello Bites Recipe — When mangoes start showing up in grocery stores that’s when I know summer has officially arrived. And this mango jello bites recipe is just right!
When watermelon and mangoes start showing up in grocery stores, that’s when I know summer has officially arrived. Though summer doesn’t really start until August here in San Francisco, we’re occasionally blasted with sweltering weekends where I’m sitting and sweating in my 4th floor apartment.
It’s times like these when I don’t want to move, eat, or do anything unless it’s cold and easy to eat. Thus, inspiration for these mango jelly bites!
It’s also riff off of one of my favorite traditional Chinese desserts — creamy mango pudding. But these jello bites are a little easier to make…
Ingredients Needed To Make Mango Jello Bites
- 1 packet unflavored gelatin
- 1 can mango nectar — I used Kern’s mango nectar. (Brings back good childhood memories!)
- Sweetened shredded coconut
How To Make Mango Jello Bites
In a shallow container, pour our 2/3rds of the mango nectar.
And then, sprinkle the unflavored gelatin on top. Let sit for a minute.
Meanwhile, bring the rest of the mango nectar to a boil in a small saucepan.
Next, add the boiled juice to the cold juice and whisk, making sure all the powder is dissolved.
Refrigerate for about 4 hours, or until the jello is solid.
Cut into little cubes and top with coconut.
