Creamy Orange Jell-O - Coupons4Utah

In 2001, J-E-L-L-O (do me a favor and sing the tune as you read the word Jell-O) became the official snack of the State of Utah. Did you know we consume twice the amount of Jello as any other state? I probably buy more than my fair share of Jell-O because it is so versatile and inexpensive.

It's so refreshing and light but it's also sweet enough that it could be used as a dessert.

  1. the pudding for the topping does not say instant or cooked so I am assuming its cooked since it was for the lemon pudding...please clarify

      Hi Christine, the pudding for the topping is instant. Hope that helps!
  2. I watched Utah State Plate show on Monday, December 10,2018 The creamy orange jello was made differently. Nothing was mentioned about the pudding mix. Please explain the difference. Cora Withers

      Hi Cora, I'm sorry I am not familiar with the Utah State Plate Show. However, this recipe is just one that my family has enjoyed for many years. I know that there are many different Jell-O recipes and this just happens to be one of my favorites.
  3. I'm definitely making this for Thanksgiving since the color would be an extra delight to the table. Do you think adding crushed pineapple and half of the mandarin oranges to the orange/lemon combination would still allow it to congeal? I've never mixed pudding with the jello and not sure if it would work...any thoughts?? Thank you for sharing. :o)

      Hi Kelly! This Creamy Orange Jell-O would be the perfect addition to Thanksgiving! I would be worried about adding watery fruits like pineapple and mandarin oranges to the Jell-O portion and still having it set up. If you decide to add the fruit I would make sure it is VERY well drained (maybe even lay out the fruit on paper towels after you drain it so that it is nice and dry) or you could do a test run using the fruit before Thanksgiving. Good luck, I am sure it will be a hit with your friends and family!
  4. I took this to a dinner at church recently. It was so good. I was happy to have a little leftover to take home. I will make this again.

      Darlene, I am so glad you made it and enjoyed it too! It is one of our favorite pot luck dishes.
  5. Yum yum this salad looks good. Dies this salad work good with other fruits like cherry or raspberry flavored jello?

      Yes, I think it would be delicious with any flavor as long as it pairs well with lemon. I have tried lime Jell-O before and it was wonderful. If you try it, let us know how it turns out!
  6. Orange Fluff I Recipe - Orange flavored gelatin is stirred into whipped topping and then folded into a bowl of cottage cheese, crushed pineapple and mandarin oranges.
  7. Your Facebook post says eggs and cream. I see one egg in the video. I'm wondering if they substitute cream for milk in the first pudding as well? Thanks for the recipe!

      By Cream I meant Whipped Cream by way of the Cool Whip. But, you could substitute half and half and for the milk and that might make it extra creamy. I'll have to try it. Only one egg or according to your package directions. I wrote eggs because egg sounded weird to me. Enjoy, come back and let me know how you liked it.
