To make this quicker, you can use 1 tablespoon blueberry (or other fruit) jam in place of the mashed berries. Omit the maple syrup or honey if using jam. 3 packets of gelatin will create firm gummies. To make them softer (they will almost dissolve in their mouths) for younger eaters, reduce it to 2 packets. You may want to taste the mixture before adding it to the pan to make sure it's sweet enough. If you use jam, the sweetness can vary considerably (the homemade kind we use is very sweet). Add more jam or maple syrup as needed.
1. Place the berries into a small saucepan and heat on low until the juices just start to run. Remove from heat and mash with a fork or a potato masher and strain out the skins, reserving the liquid. Set aside. (You can save the skins to add to your next smoothie!)
2. Place 1/2 cup milk into an 9x13-inch baking pan or a 9-inch pie plate (you want something with a large surface area). Sprinkle the gelatin over top evenly to dissolve. Let sit for about 3 minutes. Whisk to combine.
3. Warm the remaining 1/2 cup milk in a heat-safe container, such as a glass measuring cup, in the microwave until just about to boil, about 30-45 seconds. Stay close to avoid it boiling over. Whisk the warm milk into the cold milk/gelatin mixture for 1-2 minutes or until very smooth. Add the yogurt, vanilla, maple syrup or honey, and blueberry juice and whisk well to combine.
4. Pour into an 8x8-inch baking pan and refrigerate for at least 1 hour and up to overnight. Cut into squares or into shapes with your favorite cutter. Store in the fridge for 3-5 days in an airtight container.
Switch out the blueberries for strawberries or raspberries. Or simply use 1 tablespoon jam instead of fruit.
Use a mini silicone mold to make little shapes.
Cut into larger squares and serve like the jigglers you probably grew up eating.
