If you recall the fun of squishing grape “eyeballs” at Halloween, you’ll love to revisit the gross-out factor and enjoy this juicy snack along with your kids. Unfiltered apple juice gives the gelatin a creepy, swamp-like feel, but use any flavor your family likes. Clear apple juice or white grape juice are good, too.
For an icy snack, whirl up our green slushie, a mix of fruits and sweet white grape juice. Using the ripest fruit gives the sweetest flavor. For honeydew melon, this means taking the paler, juicier part near the center of the melon rather than the green flesh closer to the rind. The banana should be super-ripe.
