I'm on low-fodmap so basically no honey for me. I've made Coconut Water,Dextrose and Gelatin jigglers. I'm waiting on a batch of Chamomile,Green tea and Gelatin Jigglers right now. Hope it turns out.

I've seen people say to puree berries add them to water with gelatin then add the hot water to make like a jelly or something? Any ideas, I just want a protein source thats easy to digest in between meals.

I didn't add any sweetener to the tea jello. But I'm still waiting to see how it turned out. I'll try it in the morning. The grape and dextrose jello I made earlier today turned out well. 2c grape juice 2c water with Dextrose and some stevia. Which I probably shouldn't add the stevia. I plan on eating the grape jello after meals to help with the fructose absorption also. I have elevated liver enzymes so I probably shouldn't even be taking in any fructose to begin with, but whatever.

I use 2 tablespoons gelatin to 2 cups hot water and 2 cups cold liquid.

I do jellos in the summer with herbal teas, sometimes lemon, cranberry or lime juice (unsweetened), but my favorite is to use homemade bone broth and make bone jello. Very tasty!

I also discovered a trove of savory gelatin/jello recipes (search old cookbooks, or Google "aspics"). My best creation last summer was baked minced turkey thigh meat and hard boiled eggs in a bone broth based aspic. I find I've come to prefer the savory jello inventions over the dessert varieties whether they're sweet or not.

Hibiscus! Totally yummy. Pairs great with cranberry. Lavender and rose are also quite tasty. (I love floral flavors, if you can't tell!)
