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

  • Unflavored gelatin — One packet makes about four 1/2 cup servings.
  • Mango nectar
  • Sweetened shredded coconut — To garnish

How To Use Gelatin 

This recipe calls for unflavored gelatin packets.

However, gelatin can also be purchased by the jar or container. If you are not using packets, you’ll need 1/4 ounce of gelatin powder or 2 1/4 – 2 1/2 ounces.

How To Chill Jello Faster

When serving jello, you’ll want your jello to be solid. It takes about four hours of chill time in the refrigerator to achieve this state. Overnight is best.

However, you can get jello to set faster by chilling the container before you pour in your mixture. You can also stir the gelatin mixture constantly in a metal bowl over an ice bath until it begins to set.
