The prettiest jello shots you'll ever see - or taste! And they're 100% vegetarian and vegan-friendly too.
Jello shots are a classic party favorite, but they're not exactly vegetarian-friendly. Yep, that's right jello is one of those non-vegetarian foods that most people don't know about!
Luckily, we have a solution! These Jello Fruit Slice Shots are made with agar agar and fruit juice instead of traditional Jello, making them the perfect vegetarian and vegan friendly adult party treat.
Why You'll Love these Jello Shots!
These Vegan Fruit Slice Shots are not only delicious but also fun and easy to make. They are a great addition to any party, and their fruity flavor and cute presentation are sure to be a hit with your guests.
Plus, by using agar agar instead of gelatin, these shots are vegetarian-friendly, making them accessible to a wider range of dietary needs.
Recipe Tips & Variations
Use fresh fruit juice for the best flavor. I used pomegranate juice for my fruit slice shots, but you can use any fruit juice that you like. Citrus juices like orange, lemon, or lime work particularly well.
You can use any fruit that you like for the fruit slices as well, but we recommend using brightly colored fruit like oranges, lemons, or limes for a fun and festive look. You can even use a variety of different fruits for a rainbow effect!
Make jello shot ice cubes! If making the fruit slices feels like too much work, here's an alternative. Just pour the fruit juice mixture into a square or rectangular dish and let it set into a block. Cut the vegan jello shots into small cubes and serve on toothpicks for a fun and easy party snack.

- Whisk together pomegranate juice, sugar, water, and agar agar powder in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer for 2-3 minutes until powder is fully dissolved, continuing to whisk occasionally.
- Remove from heat, add vodka slowly, stirring thoroughly
- Place orange halves upright in a small plastic container or dish. You want them to fit together snugly, but not be smashed in. Pour juice mixture into orange peels, careful not to over- or under-fill. Allow orange halves to rest on the countertop until almost solidified. (Agar agar is solid at room temperature.)
- Once filling is nearly solid, move wedges to refrigerator until completely chilled (about 2 hours). Carefully remove halves from container and cut into wedges with a sharp knife.
