    Those look so easy to make and I am sure they would be great for cooling off over the summer. I love the little terra cotta pots you used to hold them in. Such a cute idea for a summer get together.

  2. Yes this is so creative and I especially am loving the Watermelon Homemade Jello – I’ll have to check it out with the sugar free type and give it a fun try at taste testing! Thank you 🙂

  3. Wow this is an easy idea. That vanilla yogurt is an awesome touch! The orange and vanilla flavors are always good together and watermelon sounds great too.
