Gatorade Jello Squares...perfect for half-time snacks at kids sporting events!

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.

  1. This is a perfect idea for a soccer half-time snack! Can’t wait to try it! Just one question, how did you package them for easy distribution?

  2. Thank you for this great idea! I have made lime, orange, strawberry, and fruit punch. The softball team enjoyed them very much!!!

  3. 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??

    1. I just cut them into squares and put them all in a zip flat tupperware. I let the kids grab out. But if you’re opposed to that with all the germs floating around these days you could easily put them in portioned out ziptop bags!

      1. Thanks Shelly! I’m going to put them in individual plastic tumblers. But the larger question I have is that the gatorade to jello ratio seems off. I have 2 large jello packages (which is like 4 small ones). Each package normally calls for 4 cups (or 8 cups for both packages) of water, so I’m worried that 2.5 cups of Gatorade is not enough for the whole recipe. What am I not seeing here? (hoping to do these for our championship game tomorrow!)

        Thanks so much!

    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!

  5. 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.
