Jelly vs Jello

The terms “jelly” and “Jello” refer to similar but slightly different food products, and the distinction between them depends on regional usage.

  • “Jelly” can refer to a fruit-flavoured dessert or spread with a smooth and firm texture. It’s commonly used in British and Australian English. And, it’s commonly used for the jiggly, wobbly gelatin-based dessert (especially here in Australia).
  • “Jello” refers to the brand name of a gelatin dessert that is common in North America but also in Australia and the UK.

In this recipe, the jelly is the jiggly, wobbly dessert made with gelatin, hot water and orange juice!

Quick and easy recipe for orange jelly (or orange jello) served in orange skin cups with sliced strawberries. Healthy, low-calorie, refreshing dessert for summer!


  • 120 ml hot water (4 fluid oz.)
  • 10 g gelatin powder (0.3 oz.)
  • 350 ml orange juice freshly squeezed, pulp-free (1.5 cups)
  • 4 large strawberries thinly sliced
  • 4 oranges cut in halves


  • In a small bowl, dissolve the gelatin powder in hot water (I used almost boiling water).
  • Add orange juice and whisk through.
  • Cut oranges in halves. Using a small knife, cut out the flesh carefully without cutting through the skin. You can use your fingers or a spoon to help. Discard the fruit flesh or use it for juicing. Slice a thin layer off the bottom of the orange halves to make them stand flat on a tray.
  • Place 3-4 slices of strawberries in the orange halves and fill with the orange jelly mix. Place the plate with oranges in the fridge, and once the jelly firms up, cover it with Gladwrap. The jelly will set in about 5 hours. Keep refrigerated for up to 3 days.


You can squeeze and strain your own orange juice or get good quality freshly squeezed orange juice from the store. Feel free to use other berries instead of strawberries to achieve a similar visual effect.
