An easy and fast edible prank that is silly, harmless, and wins everyone over with smiles in the end.
Pranks can be fun, especially for the one pulling the prank. That being said, they aren't always fun for the other person. Pranks can be especially hard when you're pulling them on kids. So why not pull a prank that ends in laughter and a mouth full of jello rather than tears? Thats where "prank juice" comes in, it's fun, will get a few laughs and everyone gets to eat jello in the end. I call that a win-win!
Step 1: Things You'll Need
You'll need the following:
Step 2: Bloom Your Gelatin
First things first, you'll need to bloom your gelatin.
Pour 1/4 Cup of your juice into a measuring cup or mixing bowl. Sprinkle in all of your powdered gelatin. Whisk until the mixture begins to thicken. Let the gelatin sit for roughly 3 minutes, allowing time for the gelatin to bloom.
Blooming your gelatin is essentially allowing it to rehydrate and swell--growing in size. Blooming also ensure a smooth texture in your finished jello product. You can only bloom gelatin in cold or room temperature liquids as boiling liquids will not always allow the gelatin to set properly. You should also avoid freshly squeezed tropical fruit juices (mango, kiwi, papaya, and pineapple) since they will all have an enzyme that eats your gelatin. If the juices have already been pasteurized, you shouldn't have a problem.
Step 3: Hot Water
Once your gelatin has bloomed and thickened, add 1/4 cup of boiling water. Mix with your whisk until your bloomed gelatin is completely and evenly dissolved.
Step 4: Finish With Juice
Add the remaining 1 1/2 cups of fruit juice. Whisk to mix evenly. At this point your jello is almost ready to set!
Step 5: Pour and Set
Choose your glass you'd like to use in this prank. Place a straw in it. You'll want to place your straw in before the jello has set so that it doesn't disturb your solid jello later.
Pour in your jello mixture. Place in your refrigerator for at least two hours, allowing your jello to set up. You'll want to make sure that your jello glass is setting up at the back of your fridge, or in a location where it won't be disturbed while it's becoming solid.
Step 6: Done!
You're done. Serve up your juice at your next meal or thirst quenching opportunity! Get ready for laughs and I hope you have a spoon in your pocket for the jello!
