Author: Michele
Servings: 4 boats
These homemade jello boats are so much fun – for kids AND adults! Paleo and AIP-compliant, easy to make, and great for parties.
Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 5 mins
Chilling Time 4 hrs
Total Time 4 hrs 15 mins


  • 1 Orange (each orange makes 4 boats)
  • 1 cup Juice
  • 1 tbsp Gelatin
  • 1 sheet Paper
  • 4 Toothpicks


  • Cut oranges in half.
  • Scoop out the flesh from the oranges so you just have the peels that now look like little bowls. Place the bowls in a glass baking pan.
  • Prepare the jello by putting your desired amount of juice into a saucepan. (Each orange half holds about 1/4-1/2 cup of juice, depending on size). Sprinkle 1 tbs of gelatin per 1 cup of juice over the juice and the whisk.
  • Heat the juice until it is hot to the touch and the gelatin is dissolved.
  • Pour the juice into each orange “bowl” until it reaches the top.
  • Put the oranges into the refrigerator to set, at least 4 hours, preferably overnight.
  • Once set, cut the oranges in half to make the boats. Cut out sails from paper and then push a toothpick through the sail and into the jello. Serve and enjoy!
