This is super simple to make and tastes AMAZING! I did not have any trouble with it setting up, just followed the directions and have made it many times.

The gelatin did not set for mine for quite a while, maybe an hour and a half. Other than that, nice light treat for spring/summer!

I put it in the freezer after 45 minutes and it partially set up 15 minutes later.

Help! The white grape juice and gelatin doesn't partially set, even after an hour in the refrigerator. Is 1-3/4 cup of juice too much? Thanks!
