This low-cal Pimm’s jelly is a refreshing twist on the classic Pimm’s No. 1, perfect on a hot summer’s day.


  • 165ml Pimm's No. 1
  • 510ml water
  • 4 leaves of gelatine
  • 2 tbsp sweetener
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • 45 ml orange juice
  • 20g cucumber, diced
  • 18 mint leaves
  • 2 medium oranges, peel and pith removed and cut into segments
  • 6 strawberries, sliced
  • For the garnish:
  • 6 strawberries, halved
  • 6 mint sprigs


  • Put 4 tbsp of water in a dish and allow the gelatine to soak.

  • Heat the remaining water. When hot but not boiling, add the gelatine and liquid and leave to melt. When the gelatine has dissolved, add half the sweetener and mix thoroughly.

  • Add Pimm’s, lemon and orange juice then strain into a bowl. Leave to cool at room temperature.

  • Prepare the oranges, slicing away the skin and pith. Segment the oranges and dice the flesh.

  • Just before pouring, add the remaining sweetener. Half fill 6 glasses or bowls of approximately 200ml capacity with the Pimm’s mixture. Add some of the orange pieces, diced cucumber and strawberry slices.

  • Put the glasses in the fridge for approximately 1 ½ hrs or until the jelly sets, then pour on the remaining Pimm’s mixture. Add the rest of the orange, strawberries and cucumber and 3 mint leaves to each glass. Allow to set completely in the fridge. Serve topped with a strawberry and mint sprig.
