No-drip ice blocks recipe

These ice blocks are made from jelly mixture and still won’t drip even when they are melting. Jelly crystals come in a wide variety of colours and flavours and this is a really economical way to make ice blocks.



  • 1 pkt jelly crystals, any flavour
  • 250ml boiling water
  • 200ml cold water
  • Ice block moulds


In a bowl, add jelly crystals and boiling water. Stir. When the crystals are all dissolved, add the cold water. Stir.

Pour mixture into ice-block moulds and freeze.


  • Run the moulds under warm water for a few seconds to release the ice blocks from the moulds.
  • You can use only one flavour of jelly or try using a few different flavours and layering them in the moulds.
