Cubes of red jelly

The classic childhood jello, turned into an electrolyte replenisher. You’re welcome.

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon gelatin
  • 1/4 cup boiled water
  • 1 3/4 cups water mixed with 1 packet of GU hydration mix
  • Optional: 3/4 cup frozen blueberries

Directions:

  1. Sprinkle the gelatin into 1/4 cup of the GU powder mixed with water. Whisk until the mixture begins to thicken.
  2. Once this mixture has thickened, pour the 1/4 cup of hot water in and whisk.
  3. When this mixture is smooth, add the remaining portion of GU mixed with water.
  4. Pour the mixture into a loaf pan that has been greased or lined with parchment paper.
  5. Place into the fridge and let set for 2 hours. Jello is ready when the top is firm to the touch.
