Vegan Jello (Gelatin Free Jello)

This is a great vegan recipe for Jello! Jello is a simple easy snack that most kids love. Instead of adding gelatin, I am using Agar-Agar. It is an excellent vegetarian alternative for gelatin. It's a good snack for kids and adults alike.

Servings 4 people


  • 1 cup grape juice
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon agar-agar powder (available in Indian and Asian stores)


  • Dissolve the agar-agar in water, in saucepan combine juice, sugar, and water with agar-agar.
  • Bring it to boil over medium heat. Stir occasionally making sure agar-agar is mixed well. Let it boil for about 2 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat pour into individual cups or molds, or in a small glass tray. Refrigerate for about 3-4 hours.
  • Jello is ready to serve.


  1. Pour the juice in the dish while it is hot as Jello will start getting set as it cools.
  2. I have experimented many times to give the right texture to the Jello and this combination comes out just right. Adding more agar-agar or not adding water with the juice will make jello very firm.
  3. Store bought orange juice did not work well for this recipe, but fresh orange juice works great.

    1. Hi Vansha
      Even I tried to get it from the stores but unfortunately I couldn’t. I”m based in Delhi NCR . Last option was to buy it online. I bought it online from Gourmet Food India.


    1. Maybe try sucrolose based sweetener rather than aspartame one, as sucrolose sweeteners are recommended for higher cooking temperatures. Try first with half sugar and half sweetener.

  1. Thank You for this jello recipe with juice and the alternative ajar ajar. I was about to use unflavored gelatin and I was grossed out with the odor. I would like to ask you if you know if ajar ajar will work with a jello that has cream cheese and condensed, fruit such as mango , strawberry in the recpie .Will the ajar ajar thicken or work in this recipe ?? I will try, what is your opinion please. Have a great day Manjula
