Gelatine and milk HELP!

I'm making "Green elephant snot" dessert. I heated up some milk to dissolve some lime jello with aspartame and the milk began to separate. Ick! If I manage to break the milk down with blender, will the gelatine dessert still set properly??? I really don't want to throw it out. Help please! Thank you.

Think you might have to toss it Dina. Give it a go but chances are its not going to work well.

certainly sounds like green elephant snot... I agree, I would start over. Would using canned, evaporated milk have a less of a chance to curdle?

Also, you might try dissolving the jello in hot water, then add the milk to it.

Could be the lime is curdling the milk, I agree with Alix. It is likely more acidic than normal jello.

There are quite a few lime jello recipes out there that use canned milk. Maybe it's because the aspartame doesn't really neutralize the acid like sugar does. Just a guess.
