    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    There just couldn't be a more delicious summertime dessert than this. I have even prepared this in a square glass pan, instead of unmolding it, I just leave it in the pan and cut in yummy! (prep time is chilling time).

    1. 1
      Prepare a 6-cup mold (coat with vegetable spray).
    2. 2
      Drain the pineapple (reserving the juice).
    3. 3
      Add cold water to the pineapple juice to measure 1 cup.
    4. 4
      Stir boiling water into the gelatin in a large bowl, stirring at least 2 minutes until completely dissolved.
    5. 5
      Stir in the pineapple/water liquid; refrigerate for 1-1/4 hours, or until just slightly thickened (it should be the consistency of unbeaten egg whites).
    6. 6
      Remove from the refrigerator; stir in the Cool Whip topping with a wire whisk until smooth.
    7. 7
      Refrigerate 10 minutes more, or until the mixture will mound.
    8. 8
      Stir in pineapple, oranges, marshmallows and coconut; spoon into the mold.
    9. 9
      Refrigerate for 3 hours, or until firm.
    10. 10
      TO UNMOLD: dip mold into hot water for about 15 seconds.
    11. 11
      Gently pull gelatin from around the edges with moist fingers.
    12. 12
      Place a moistened serving plate on top of the mold; invert mold on plate, holding the mold and plate together (shake lightly to loosen).
    13. 13
      Gently remove the mold and center the gelatin on the plate.
    14. 14
      ***NOTE***fresh oranges (cut into large chunks) may be subsitituted for the mandarin oranges if desired, I have done this many times with good results.

      Made this for our Easter family dinner..we can't get CoolWhip here so i substituted 1 c of plain yoghurt. Easy to make, looked great and was delicious. Thankyou for sharing.

      This is the exact same recipe I serve every Easter as a salad with dinner. It's really light and refreshing. It just tastes like "spring" to me! Thanks for posting it.

      I have made this jello for years. It is so creamy and yummy that I make it all-year around. I do leave the coconut out, since the rest of my crowd doesn't care for it. Roxygirl in Colo
