Pucker up and enjoy this sweet and sour after-school treat. For a sweeter snack or dessert, use fresh orange pieces. For those who like it sour try more grapefruit or lime segments.

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Bring 2 cups limeade to a boil in a small saucepan over high heat.
  2. Meanwhile, pour water into a large heatproof bowl. Sprinkle gelatin over the water; let stand for 3 minutes. Add the dissolved spirulina to the remaining 1 cup limeade and stir to completely dissolve the gelatin, 2 to 3 minutes. Add sugar and stir for 1 minute to dissolve.
  3. Refrigerate until the mixture is the consistency of thin pudding and is just starting to set around the edges, 1 to 1 3/4 hours. The time will vary depending on the size of your bowl and how cold your refrigerator is. After 1 hour, start checking every 5 to 10 minutes because it thickens quickly after that.
  4. Gently but thoroughly whisk the mixture until it’s uniform. Stir in diced citrus. Pour into a 9-by-13-inch pan. Cover the pan with plastic wrap, without touching the jello.
  5. Refrigerate until very firm, about 3 hours. To test if it’s ready, touch it with your finger. If your finger does not stick, it’s done.
  6. Run a small, sharp knife around the edge of the pan. Cut into 16 squares then gently pry the squares out with a butter knife.
