(Sugar free) Dreamsicle Salad: Updated

This is the most pinned recipe at my blog!  And it's a real winner! I thought it was time I updated the photo as it's a very old hope you'll give it a stir, and a taste, soon! 

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)


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 - 30 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.
