  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 2 envelopes plain gelatin
  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • 3/4 cup Malibu coconut rum


  • 1 mixing bowl
  • 1 small pot
  • 20 2-ounce jello shot cups
  • 1 cookie sheet (optional)
  • 1 measuring cup


  • Pour the coconut milk into a mixing bowl. Sprinkle the gelatine over the top. Set aside
  • Heat the pineapple juice until it is just boiling. Add it to the coconut milk gelatin mixture and mix until all of the gelatin has dissolved. I find using a whisk works best for this. Stir in the coconut rum.
  • Fill up each of the jello shot cups with the gelatin mixture. 
  • Chill for 2 to 4 hours.


  • Using jello shot cups with lids* makes transporting and storing them very easy
  • Spreading the jello shot cups out on a cookie sheet catches any spills and makes them easy to transport to the fridge.
  • Let the jelly mixture cool for a few minutes in the shot cups before putting the lids on. This will help to eliminate condensation from forming under the lids. While this isn't a problem for the taste of the jello, they look better without it.
