Good Eating Monday: Another Jello Dessert

Today's good eating idea is another Jello dessert
I fixed it for our Sunday Night Bible Study.
It's called,  "Creamy Orange Mandarin Jello."
Here's the recipe. This makes a delightfully pretty and light dessert.
1   4-serving size box of orange sugar-free Jello.
3/4  cup boiling water
1/2  cup cold water
ice cubes
1/2  cup thawed Lite Cool Whip.
1  15oz can mandarin oranges, drained
Optional: orange zest

*Dissolve gelatin in boiling water in small clear glass serving bowl you plan to use to serve your jello. Combine cold water and ice cubes to make 1 1/4 cups. Add to gelatin and stir until slightly thickened and cold. Remove any unmelted ice.
*Measure out 1 cup of orange gelatin into a separate bowl and set aside.
*Add drained mandarin oranges to remaining gelatin and put into freezer to help it quick- set while you prepare the creamy portion.
*To the 1 cup portion you measured out, add the Cool Whip and blend together until creamy. (I used an electric mixer, but you could use a blender as well.) If you want some orange zest, do so now & stir in.
* Remove serving bowl of mandarin orange gelatin from freezer. Top it with the creamy gelatin portion, then place in refrigerator to set. I'd make it at least an hour ahead of when you want it for serving.
**If you want a larger portion, use the large size box and double everything except the mandarin oranges. One can is adequate for either size recipe.
**This recipe is for one serving dish, which I find quicker, but you can also layer the two gelatin's into single serving parfait glasses for a fancier look: the small jello will make 4, the large, about 8.

This recipes comes from the "Simply Delicious Recipes for Sugar Free Jello" booklet.
