Isn’t it a wonderful serendipity that jewel-toned fruits, like pomegranates and grapefruit, are most available when it is so dreary, cold and grey?
I took advantage of these winter specialties and brightened up my day with this chic honey-sweetened Grapefruit Geleé. If you haven’t noticed, I’ve started to market my recipes with fancy-shmancy sounding names like “Caramelized Onion Sardine Paté” instead of “Mashed Sardines.” Don’t you think Honey Grapefruit Geleé sounds worlds better than Grapefruit Jello?
Isn’t it pretty? The color brings back fond memories of my Grandma’s peach-colored bathroom with an intricate, gold-plated fish sculpture for the faucet. Walking into that bathroom was like stepping into 1952. It was awesome.
- 2 cups freshly squeezed grapefruit juice (3-4 large grapefruits)
- 5 tsp. grassfed gelatin
- 2 heaping tbs. raw honey
- Pomegranate seeds, if desired
- In a saucepan, whisk together the grapefruit juice and gelatin. Let sit 5 minutes. Then, turn the burner on medium and whisk until the gelatin has dissolved.
- Let the mixture cool until it is just warm to the touch. Whisk in the honey. (Cooling the mixture preserves the enzymes in the raw honey). Pour into a container and chill until firm. Cut into bite-sized pieces, garnish with pomegranate seeds and enjoy!
The Gelee sounds absolutely divine, and not only does it sound better to name it Gelee, it will taste better.
Thanks for the recipe, I hope I can try it soon. I’m just on intro, so I think I have to hold off a bit. If you know otherwise, say so because a ‘treat’ even if it’s just jello…oh hmm Gelee, would be welcome right about now.
Good luck as you get through the intro diet… that is the hardest part. Grassfed gelatin is fine on the intro diet, but I would still hold off on this because it has a lot of fruit sugars. Plus, citrus fruits can sometimes be hard to digest. Best wishes on your GAPS journey!!
It looks amazing Lauren, I know what treat I am making for my girls with the grapefruits I just picked! Thanks! 🙂

How did I not discover your website sooner?!! This is awesome and so are you. I am loving everything I am reading on here – just wanted to let you know 🙂
Awww, shucks 🙂 And what a coincidence! I just found your site though Pinterest today and I love it! Sooo gonna try that Rock Salt Roasted Chicken next week.
Just received my Great Lakes gelatin and very excited to make some of your recipes, please tell me if it tastes of the awful smell coming from it ?!!!
I know the smell is unpleasant. It has a slight but not unpleasant flavor, I don’t even taste it any more because I am used to it. There is no flavor when it is made in this recipe or my other recipes because the ingredients “hide” the faint gelatin taste.
I’ve discovered it’s hard to resist the temptation to make it into heart-shaped gelee jigglers. It’s pretty. And tasty. I want to add some POM juice next time too, or maybe some raspberries (pureed?). Thanks, Lauren!
Pomegranate juice sounds like a wonderful addition!
Just curious – why is the ration of gelatin to liquid so different for this recipe v. the Tulsi Gelee?
I honestly don’t know… I just write the recipe down as I make it and if it is delicious, then I post it 🙂 Both recipes worked even with the different amounts of gelatin.
I made this and it’s GOOD!!!! Making it again.
Wonderful recipe, looks simple and delicious! I featured it on my blog 🙂
