We love Stewart's brand orange soda pop at our house. So...we also like Dreamsicle ice cream bars. You get the picture. Well now I have found a salad with that same great flavor. Wayne says I can make it any time. And I have. Lately we've had the occasion to take meals in to several small families. So I divided it in half each time and gave half and kept half. Hence, we have eaten it a lot recently. This recipe is borrowed from The Better Baker Blog. I have made it with both diet and non-diet ingredients. Great either way. (Terry)
1 sm. (4 serv. size) pkg. sugar free orange jello
1 sm. (4 serv. size) pkg. sugar free instant vanilla pudding
1 - 10 ozs. can mandarin oranges, drained
1 - 8 ozs. tub fat free frozen whipped topping, thawed
Dissolve jello in 1 c. boiling water. Add 1/2 c. cold water; let set in fridge for 20 minutes. Whisk in dry vanilla pudding mix and whisk until smooth. Fold in oranges and whipped topping. Refrigerate. Try strawberry jello with strawberries, peach jello with (no sugar added) peaches, etc.
NOTE: I use 2 cans of mandarin oranges. We have tried and also like the strawberry version and have tried lime jello with pears.
