Blackberry Jello with Coconut

With all of this crazy gossip going around about Bill Cosby, it got me sad. I loved Cosby growing up just like everyone else! I even did a project on him in elementary school and brought it jello for all the class. Here’s a spruce up of a favorite childhood classic.


2 1/2 cups blackberries (will make about 2 cups juice)

1/2 lemon

1/2 cup sugar

1 packet of gelatin

Coconut flakes for dusting around the cubes

Combine Juice, sugar, and gelatin in a medium mixing bowl, and stir until gelatin is completely dissolved. Add a squirt of lemon juice, and refrigerate for 1 hour. If you aren’t adding the coconut flakes, you can refrigerate for less time, as it will be softer, but we want the cubes firm so we can roll them around in coconut! Cut them into 1″ x 1″ cubes. Sprinkle coconut onto a plate or other surface, and get each side slathered in coconut!
