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…

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!


LOL. What???? I seriously haven`t had jello in a longgg time. But, I`m totally tempted to try this out because it`ll be so cool.

hahaha!!! Your friend, “Sheryl” is a genius! 😀 LOL! But on a serious note, what you have done is just absolute genius! Gatorade jello??? Now I know I want several blobs of this!!!!!


This is awesome. Definitely going to have these out at the next pool party 🙂


Wow!! This is such a brilliant idea! I cannot wait to try it this weekend. Thanks for sharing.

How funny is this! I just made Dr. Pepper Jello squares the other day! Great minds think alike! I will definitely be trying the Gatorade too…my kids will go bonkers for all the colors!

Angelyn @ Everyday Desserts

I haven’t had jello in SO long, and this totally has me craving jello again! Yum!


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


Showing my age but long, long ago they were “knox blocks”!!:>}

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??


Will be making diabetic-friendly Powerade Zero and sugar-free Jello ones. Probably blue. Thanks!!!


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


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?
