Juicy Mango Wigglers
3.2/5 rating (25 votes)

  • 1½ cups 100 percent tropical mango juice blend, divided (you can also use mango juice or orange juice)
  • 1 cup frozen mango
  • 2 envelopes unflavored gelatin
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • Directions

    1. In a blender, blend together 1 cup of juice and the frozen fruit until smooth.  Pour into a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Stir occasionally to break up any frothy bubbles.
    2. Meanwhile, place the remaining 1/2 cup juice in a large bowl. Sprinkle the gelatin over the juice and let stand 1 minute. Add the hot juice mixture and stir, or gently whisk, until the gelatin completely dissolves, about 5 minutes. Stir in the sugar.
    3. Pour the mixture into an 8 x 8-inch pan or dish. Refrigerate until firm, about 3 hours. Cut into 24, 2 x 1 1/3-inch rectangles (use an off-set spatula to remove them from the pan).
