Blueberry Lava Lamps
You have to make this one on the weekend since it takes about an hour to make and should set over night, but it stores beautifully in the fridge for several days. It’s a fruit-filled version of Jell-O that’s made with natural fruit juice instead of artificial flavors and dyes — the suspended fruits look like a cool science experiment when it’s finished.
