Total cooking time: 2h 30min
Tipsy wine-based banana jelly isn’t the kind which comes to the mind first when talking about jelly desserts. It has unusual taste and as you can guess includes some alcohol, which makes it not suitable for children.
Any white wine will work for this recipe. Taste of the dessert will vary based on the taste of the used wine, adjust amount of sugar to your liking to get the best results.
Using silicone molds will give you more festive shaped jelly portions, however be aware that getting jelly out of the molds in one piece isn’t that easy (especially if the molds you use are such small ones like mine).
- 2 cups of white wine
- 2 tbsp of unflavored gelatin (1/4 oz)
- 1/3 – 1/2 cups of sugar
- 2 bananas
- 1-2 tablespoons of lemon juice (optional)
How to prepare, step-by-step:
- Prepare ingredients:

Can you make a alcohol free jelly
Of course! Just use a fruit juice or kompote instead.
