(Sugar free) Dreamsicle Salad

This is an easy and delightful dish that is light and can be served as a salad or a dessert.

It only calls for 4 ingredients!

And it can be whipped up in just minutes.  Ya gotta love that about any recipe! 

It tastes like the frozen treat made with vanilla ice cream and orange sherbet.
(A Creamsicle)


MMMMM!


DREAMSICLE SALAD
1 sm. box (4 serv. size/.3 oz pkg)* sugar-free orange jello
1 sm. box (4 serv. size/1 oz 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.  With mixer or whisk, add dry vanilla pudding mix to jello and beat until
smooth. Fold in oranges and whipped topping (by hand). Refrigerate.

Try strawberry jello with strawberries, peach jello with (no sugar added) peaches, etc.

*these sizes refer to brand-name sugar-free packaging in the small box.  Other brands or sugar-full packages may contain a different oz. by weight or volume, but for this recipe, I use the small box in any case.

So easy and so good. I used to love the ones you get on a stick, too. Will have to try this one. Thanks.

I love all the sugar-free desserts you share. We all need a guilt-free treat every now & then.

I love this recipe! I made it with fresh strawberries & sf strawberry jello. My suggestion would be to chop them up into small pieces & then be sure they are very fresh. I cut mine in 1/4. They were a few days old when I used them & some molded on top of the salad (not covered w/ jello). I will definitely make again, just be sure I use fresher berries. ;)

Sugar free...aned fruit?

My step-grandmother used to make something similar, and I loved it. Instead of the pudding, she used cottage cheese. (I've made it as well, and I always use 1% or 2%, and prefer the large curd when I can find it.) It's so good that I make it "just because", and not because I'm trying to watch calories or lose weight.

My Mom used to make this when we were young. She would use apricot jello, shredded pineapple, and cottage cheese on top of the ingredients you mentioned. It always had us going back for more.

I could not find a 3 oz box of sugar free pudding. I found a 1.5 oz box which was a big box. Is this a misprint or do I need 2 boxes of the sugar free pudding?

sugar free always comes in a 1oz box. the poster probably got the recipe that was made with regular pudding. I doubt it will effect the outcome but will post later as mine is "chillin" right now
