Jello Shots Ingredients |

Tip: helpful tool is a pumpkin carving knife (who would have thought?!)

Optional: Add 1-2 drops neon green food coloring to make the jello shots pop with color!


Step 1

Cut each lime in half. Use the pumpkin carving knife to score the inside of the limes.

Step 2

Gently peel back the lime pulp. I continued to use my hands to peel and remove the pulp, however you can use a spoon to scoop it out as well. Place the empty limes into mini cupcake tin.

Step 3

Pour 1 cup skinny margarita mix into a small saucepan. Sprinkle the unflavored gelatin into the mix. Heat the mix and gelatin on low until the gelatin completely dissolves. Remove from heat and cool.

Add the ¾ cup tequila to the margarita mix. Add the 2 tablespoons sweetened lime juice (I just added sugar to the lime juice to sweeten it).

Fill each of the lime halves with the mix. Chill for 3-4 hours or overnight until the jello shots are solid. Sprinkle coarse salt and lime zest on the shot before you serve!
