This was delicious! It's so smooth and creamy. I used sugar free jello and lite cool whip, and it was perfect. I think next time I might try adding a can of drained crushed pineapple. I think that would make it even better. Thanks for the wonderful recipe!

This was wonderful, I literally made it in 5 minutes (because of the boiling water). I used it with a heavy meal and it was light and perfect. The teenagers even liked it and they are sooooo picky.

This is a very nice dessert - great for hot weather! It comes out very much like a custard in texture. I used slightly different sizes of boxes based on what I had on hand - used one 5.1 oz box of vanilla pudding and 2 0.3 oz sugar free Orange jello. After reading the notes on the Cool Whip container, after dissolving the pudding and jello into the hot water, I let it cool down a bit before folding in the Cool Whip (as the container said that increased heat would increase runniness of the product). This firmed up beautifully in 2 hours and served up creamy and delicious. Thanks for sharing!

This whips up quick and makes a perfect potluck food. The first time I made it, I personally did not care for the orange flavor, but everyone else gobbled it up. So, I have since tried it with various other flavors, such as strawberry banana jello & vanilla (or banana) pudding with fresh banana mixed in. I really think this recipe lends itself to a variety of different flavors, which makes it easier to use up whatever flavors of jello and pudding are already in your pantry.

This recipe rocks! You could easily switch up the flavors, too, if you cared to do so. I think the instructions should've noted time to set up because it's not an instant thing. It takes a few hours to get the right consistancy. Other than that, AWESOME!!!

I use cool whip that's barely thawed from the freezer, because I like getting blobs of the whip cream. I try not to over stir it at the end. This is great for when the toddlers and I are cooped up and bored, because these ingredients can always be kept on hand. There is plenty of pouring and stirring for them to do! We also made this once by substituting the oranges with a can of cherry pie filling, and used cherry jello. It wasn't bad, but was WAY too sweet for me. Husband and kids still ate it though!

This was pretty damn good but I thought it was too creamy with 16oz of cool whip. I was going to make it again with only 8oz of cool whip when I had an idea. I used black cherry gelatin, 2 jars of maraschino cherries (with juice) and 8oz of cool whip. I used sugar free gelatin, pudding and cool whip. This was AMAZING, almost like eating whipped up cherry ice cream. If yu like cherries you'll love this.

I really enjoyed this light & creamy dessert - you could lighten it up by using the lite versions of the pudding, Jello, and Cool Whip. Or make it a little more interesting by adding mini-marshmallows :) I think next time I might experiment with other fruits.

This was fabulous.... big hit at our family event!! Didn't quit fit my trifle bowl like I wanted.. so next time I'll add another pudding, jello, and 8 ozs of whip....I think it needed a little more mandrains... I will also add those after the whip as they are quite delicate for all the stirring..very wonderful

This was well loved by everyone who tried it at the event I took it too. I did use the pineapple as other people suggested as well as the mandarin oranges. Very easy recipe to make and didn't take a lot of time to make.
