There is just the two of us, and a whole bowl of jell-o was just wasteful. I knew there had to be a way to make just a single serving from the dry mix, but didn't know what the ratio would be until I found it surfing the web. So for thoes of you who would like to know - here it is. I have also added the single serving of instant pudding as well. Cooking time is chill time for gelatin, the pudding is ready in 5 minutes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. For gelatin:.
  2. Mix dry mix with boiling water until dissolved.

  6. Either shake or stir the two ingredients together.
  7. Chill until firm (about five minutes).

Laura, I'm so glad you shared this. I cook only for myself most of the time and enjoy gelatin occasionally. This is perfect for one meal. I like to drain a fruit cup and add to the slightly thickened gelatin, also. Haven't yet tried the pudding, but plan to soon. Thank you.

I loved this, but mine seemed overly thick. I think I'll add more milk next time or decrease the tablespoons to 1 1/2 T of dry mix. Thanks for putting this up here! :)
