Ingredients
  • 6 leaves gelatine
  • 570ml Asda No Added Sugar Sparkling Strawberry & Vanilla Flavour Water
  • ¼ watermelon
  • ¼ cantaloupe melon
  • ¼ honeydew melon
Method
  • Soak the gelatine in cold water for 5 mins until soft.

  • Pour a quarter of the sparkling water into a pan and warm over a medium heat until it begins to steam.

  • Remove from the heat. Squeeze the excess water from the gelatine and put in the pan.

  • Stir gently until the gelatine has dissolved. Gradually add the rest of the sparkling water, stirring, until there are no lumps.

  • Pour the jelly into 8 small jars or glasses and leave in the fridge to chill while you prepare the melon balls.

  • Curl all the melon into small balls using a melon baller or teaspoon. Put on a plate lined with kitchen paper to absorb any excess juice.

  • As the jelly starts to set, gradually add melon balls to each jar a couple at a time, pushing them down through the jelly.

  • Return to the fridge and leave to set a little more, then add more melon balls until evenly dispersed through the jars. Chill in the fridge until the jelly is fully set.
