Easy Homemade Almond Jello

5 from 6 reviews

Forget the store-bought packets of almond jello powder. Make your own homemade almond jello, with just 4 pure ingredients! It’s too easy to pass up. This homemade version is sweet, almond infused, and firm enough a finger jello. If you like your jello a bit softer, add a bit more milk.

  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Total Time: 10 mins

Yield: 4


  • 1 2/3 cup boiling water
  • 2 envelopes (.25 oz each) plain gelatin (I use Knox)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 tsp pure almond extract
  • 1/2 cup cold whole milk
  • Optional: Lycheese, mandarin oranges, mangoes, or your favorite tropical fruits


  1. Pour boiling water into a bowl and whisk in the gelatin to fully dissolve. Add sugar and gently hand-whisk to dissolve. Add almond extract and whisk. Add milk and whisk.
  2. Pour into an 8×8 or similar sized dish. Chill 2-3 hours or longer.
  3. When completely set, cut into squares and serve with your favorite fruit. We love lychees, ripe mangoes, or mandarin oranges.
