How To Make Jello Ice Cubes


Mix different flavors of Jell-O in different bowls. Put them in the refrigerator until they are firm. Fill half of the slots in an ice-cube tray with water or fruit juice, and put the tray in the freezer.

Once both have solidified, take out the Jell-O and cut it into cubes small enough to fit into compartments in the tray.

Take out the ice-cube trays, and place a Jell-O cube into each compartment. Fill each cube with more water or more juice as needed.

Place the trays back into the freezer until the upper layer freezes.


  • Let the jello and ice solidify completely before moving on

  • Don't be afraid to experiment with different flavors
