8-10 limes, cored and halved
2 cups fresh watermelon juice
1 tsp Suncore Foods® Red Beet Supercolor Powder
Optional: 1-2 oz vodka
Optional: granulated sugar (adjust to watermelon sweetness)
1 tsp agar agar powder
Sprinkle of Suncore Foods® Black Chia Seeds
1. Wash and cut limes in half. Remove the core, leaving only the lime shells. Place the lime shells in shot glasses or an egg tray, ensuring they’re steady and won’t tumble when the juice is poured in.
2. In a saucepan combine watermelon juice, Red Beet Supercolor Powder, vodka (if using), sugar (if using) and agar agar powder. Once the agar agar powder has dissolved, bring the mixture to boil. Boil for 30 seconds and reduce heat to medium-low. Continue to cook for 2-3 minutes.
3. Immediately pour the mixture into the empty lime shells and refrigerate for 10 minutes. Pour any left-over mixture into shot glasses.
4. Sprinkle some chia seeds onto the semi-solid jello and refrigerate again for 40 minutes or until the jello has properly set.
5. Cut each jell-O lime shell into half before serving.
