Kombucha Jello

Kombucha Jello
  • Sumo

I’ve been brewing my own kombucha (recipe here) for well over a year now and I drink it pretty much every day. The other thing I’ve been trying to add to my diet every day is gelatin. Sometimes, I have enough bone broth on hand that I drink a cup and get my gelatin that way. If not, I add some to hot water and drink that. It gets the job done, but it’s not very enjoyable. Since It’s not very nice to drink, I sort of forget half the time. This is the gelatin I use. It comes from 100% grass fed cows. You can order from iherb.com because they deliver to just about anyplace for really great shipping prices.

Enter the idea of jello. I love jello and it feels like eating dessert (and I love dessert). I could mix the gelatin with my kombucha and make it into jello. I will have no problem remembering to eat my gelatin if it comes in jello form 🙂

You could make so many different flavors…the possibilities are endless. I used plain kombucha, but fruit flavored would work. I also brew my own, but you could use your favorite brand. I added fresh blueberries into half of my jello. I didn’t add any sweetener, but you could add honey.

Kombucha Jello


  • 2 cups of kombucha (500 ml)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 teaspoons of gelatin
  • Optional: chopped or diced fruit of choice
  • Optional: a teaspoon or two of honey


  1. Pour the water into a sauce pan and stir in the gelatin.
  2. Heat and stir continuously until the gelatin is dissolved.
  3. Add honey if you want and remove from heat.
  4. Let it cool just a bit and then stir in the kombucha.
  5. Pour into individual serving dishes (or one big size bowl if you want to eat it all. By yourself 😉 )
  6. If you are adding in fruit, just put it in the serving dish before pouring the kombucha gelatin mixture over it.
  7. Cool in the fridge until set.

  1. So good to see more healthy jelly recipes out there! We love kombucha and have been telling people to make kombucha jelly or lollies with the Great Lakes gelatin and it’s awesome to now have a recipe we can forward onto them, so thanks 🙂

    • Hi Aimee and Clint,
      Yes, it’s two great things in one…kombucha and gelatin! It’s so easy that you almost don’t even need a recipe and you can make all sorts of flavors 🙂

  2. Hey there!

    That looks pretty yum – like all your recipes 🙂
    I do have a question, though: What are the health benefits of gelatin? Since you are trying to integrate it into your daily diet, it must have some pretty beneficial effects..?

    thanks and regards

    • Hi Nina,
      Gelatin is great for your joints (my main reason), your hair, skin and nails, it’s good for your gut etc…..have a read about it here

      Hope that helps 🙂

  3. Thanks Lisa for the awesome share! I absolutely LOVE seeing different ways to use Kombucha. I think this is a perfect way to introduce new people to Kombucha.
