The Dessert They Named Orange Stuff

Boomsplat's "Orange Stuff"
Gamer rating: Everywhere, although you might want to be careful at the computer.
Prep-time: 5-10 minutes, plus 2 hours setting time.

This recipe can be remixed easily by substituting the oranges and orange jell-o with raspberries and raspberry jell-o, and probably strawberries in the same way!
  • Roughly 40 oz of mandarin orange slices. (3 large or 6 small cans)
  • 1 8 oz container whipped cream (for diabetic-friendly types, sugar-free whipped cream doesn't even change the taste)
  • 1 1 lb container of small-curd cottage cheese
  • 1 large box sugar free orange Jell-o
  1. Empty mandarin oranges into a colander over the sink. Let them drain and dry while preparing the rest of the orange stuff.
  2. Mix together the whipped cream and the cottage cheese in a mixing bowl.
  3. Stir the jell-o powder directly into the whipped cream/cottage cheese mix. Stir well.
  4. Gently shake the oranges to make sure they're as dry as possible. Fold them very gently into the mixture, trying not to break them open.
  5. Put the mixture into the fridge to set and chill for about 2 hours. Enjoy!

Requires a colander and a fridge. This recipe can be made diabetic friendly simply by using sugar-free whipped cream. This recipe is also vegetarian-ish (there's milk products, it depends how strict a vegetarian diet)
