These Gatorade Jello Squares are the perfect half-time or end of game treat for your kid’s sports team! Use any flavor Gatorade or Jello…or mix and match and create your own favorite flavor! Just Jello and Gatorade!

Hey friends! I’m popping in today with the most obvious “recipe” of all time.

Actually it’s obvious maybe to the rest of the world except me…let me start at the beginning…

I have this friend, we’ll call her “Sheryl”, just for the heck of it.

Anyhow, my friend, “Sheryl” doesn’t like to cook at all. In fact when you mention kitchen things she visibly cringes.

BUT, while she’s not a cook, she’s a fairly smart person.

We’ll say fairly smart, because we don’t want her to get too cocky…

And although she doesn’t cook so much, she happens to be my kid’s favorite “Half-time snack bringer” to soccer games.

Because she makes these Gatorade Jello Squares that the kids go nuts for.

 

So today we are going to virtually high-five “Sheryl” and tell her good call on the Gatorade Jello Squares.

Now, let me steal her idea.

Gatorade Jello Squares. The perfect refreshing half-time or end of game treat for kids!

These Jello squares are so totally easy.

My kiddo was so excited I was making these he wanted to help.

First just pick your flavor Gatorade and measure it out…

You could use any flavor you prefer with any Jello flavor you like. Totally customizable!

Anyhow, heat the Gatorade up until is just starts to boil…

And then stir it for 3 minutes to dissolve completely.

And chill it!

So easy.

Gatorade Jello Sqaures! Perfect treat for kids after their sports...use any flavor combo you like! Just Gatorade and Jello!

Your kids will for SURE love these!

And yes, before you ask, My friend, “Sheryl” told me these can totally be made with low sugar Gatorade and Sugar free jello!

What a great idea! I used to drink Gatorade all the time when I was younger, I sure would’ve loved these. :)

I haven’t had jello blocks like this in ages (jello shots yes, LOL but not like this). They’d be perfect b/c I just ran a half marathon over the weekend and am running so much lately with lots of races coming up & gatorade always hits the spot. Perfect & pinned!

Just wondering…did you spray the dish with cooking spray before you added the mixture or did they release ok without it? Thanks!! :)

Very cool site, very cool recipes. You can easily do the same thing for diabetics or gluten. Thank’s a lot.

Do you have any recipes for mint dessert? I love fancy desserts especially with mint flavor.

You know, some times people who don’t cook have the best recipes! I can totally see why the kids go nuts for these. As a food blogger, I’m wondering how hard they were to photograph! You made them look great!

Love the idea, but how do you ‘serve’ them? I am thinking for mid-game snack, these are perfect. But with so little time, how do you dole out to each child? Small plastic cups? Ideas??
