(from saymyname’s recipe box)

Serves 10 people

Categories: Halloween, Hot Beverage, Slow Cooker


  • 2 quarts apple juice
  • 2 quarts pineapple juice (or thereabouts, a can holds 1 quart, 14 ounces)
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1 (6 ounce) box lime Jell-O gelatin
  • 5 -6 whole star anise
  • orange sherbet , for serving


  1. Use a 6-quart slow cooker.

  2. Pour in the juices and add the allspice.

  3. Stir in the jello powder and float the star anise on top.

  4. Cover and cook on LOW for about 5 hours, or on HIGH for about 3 hours.

  5. Serve with a scoop of orange sherbet-it will cool the beverage down enough for small children to enjoy right away, and creates a fun foamy/slimy film on top.
