Healthy Dessert - Honey Lemon Jelly

As you guys might have know from my previous posts that I strongly believe in the benefit of drinking honey.  So, have been trying to get my baby girl to drink honey water the past one week as she was having a running nose and cough.  But, unlike SMALL FAN, Baby FAN doesn't seems to like to drink honey water as it is.  So I thought of making a light dessert that uses honey as the ingredient for her.  Stumble upon someone making honey and lemon gelatin, so I thought I give it a try and modify it according to my taste.  It was a hit with Baby FAN, now she will ask to eat more of the jelly thingy....Another successful, healthy snack to share with all. She now got the benefit of honey and the additional vitamin C from the lemon.  Here's the recipe:
