Open all three sachets of gelatin and place in a bowl and cover with enough water to dissolve, then let it sit for a few minutes so that the gelatin can ‘bloom’.

2. Prepare the Fruit

Remove all the pips from the naartjies and peaches or whatever fruit you’ve decided to use and blend together using a blender, smoothie maker or masticater. The juice should be as smooth as possible when done so you may want to sieve the liquid to remove some of the fibre and skins if blending.

3. Combine fruit and Gelatin

Place the fruit juice in a pot and heat over the stove on low or simply heat in the microwave until warm. Break up the pieces of solidified gelatin and stir into the heated juice mixture and stir continuously until all the gelatin has melted into the juice.
