So light and refreshing! Glad DH and oldest DS were not fans (no chocolate in it); left more for youngest DS and I to devour! Will be making this again when it gets hotter! Made for Spring PAC 2014.

Very good!! I used orange juice instead of water, and added 2 drained cans mandarin oranges. Makes a great lite dessert if you use sugar free jello.

This was like eating a fluffy orange cloud. Light as a feather. This was sooo easy to make I was actually frying bacon and chopping eggs for potato salad while making this!!! Wanted to take a picture but it was half gone when I came back with my camera!! I estimated I got 10-12 servings. Will definitely make this again and try adding pineapple tidbits or crushed pineapple to the dish to add extra flavor.
