1 small box gelatin or sugar free (any flavor)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups boiling water
1/2 cup cold water ice cubes
1 to 1 1/2 cups mashed or pureed fresh fruit
Dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Add sugar and stir until dissolved.
Combine water and ice cubes to make one cup. Add to gelatin and stir until ice is melted. Stir in fruit and pour into a 9 x 13-inch pan. Freeze until crystals form around edges of pan, about 1-inch. Spoon mixture into a chilled blender or processor and blend at high speed until smooth but not melted, about 30 seconds. Pour into a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan and freeze until firm.
Suggested flavor combinations: strawberry gelatin and strawberries; peach gelatin and peaches or nectarines; lemon gelatin and bananas; lemon gelatin and honeydew; peach gelatin and cantaloupe.
Makes 5 1/2 cups or 10 servings.
