Here we flavor plain gelatin with 100 percent cherry juice, and stir in creamy yogurt and fresh cherries to make a special treat. Experiment with other fruit juice and fruit combinations.

Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days.


  • 2 cups unsweetened 100% black cherry juice, divided
  • 1 envelope unflavored gelatin (about 2 1/4 teaspoons)
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons superfine sugar (see Note)
  • One 6-ounce container (2/3 cup) nonfat cherry or vanilla yogurt
  • 1 cup halved or chopped pitted fresh cherries or thawed and drained frozen cherries
  • Note: Superfine sugar dissolves instantly in liquid. It is commonly available in the baking section of most supermarkets, but if you can’t find it, simply process regular granulated sugar in a food processor or clean coffee grinder until very fine.


Place 1/2 cup cherry juice in a medium bowl. Sprinkle the gelatin on top and let stand for 1 minute. Bring the remaining 1 1/2 cups cherry juice to a boil in a small saucepan. Add to the gelatin mixture along with sugar to taste and whisk until the gelatin is dissolved. Whisk in the yogurt until combined. Divide among 4 small dishes or ramekins. Stir 1/4 cup cherries into each portion. Refrigerate until set, about 4 hours.
