Orange Tapioca Jello
I may be an amazing jello super-heroine, but my great neighbors are always coming to my rescue! Awhile ago I tasted a jello salad my cute neighbor made. It was so yummy and I told her I really liked it.
A few days ago, she made some and brought it to me because she remembered I liked it. Now isn’t that a nice and nifty neighbor!
We really enjoyed it. I played around with the recipe a little bit and made two different versions.
Strawberry Tapioca Jello
Nice Neighbor Jello
1 (3 oz.) package orange jello (or another jello flavor of your choice)
1 (3 oz.) package cook and serve tapioca jello (she used the one in purple-ish box that is fat free) I usually avoid fat free things- a taste preference- but we used it as well since it is the only one the store had.
1 (3 oz.) package cook and serve vanilla pudding
1 small can manderin oranges, drained and cut in small pieces. (When I made this with strawberry jello, I used 1/2 pound of sliced strawberries. It would also be yummy to add half strawberries and half bananas. You could do lemon flavor jello with canned pineapple tidbits etc. You can adjust the amount and kind of fruit to your taste- let your imagination go crazy.)
1 cup liquid heavy cream, whipped or 1 8oz. container cool whip (personally I like using real cream)
Put orange jello, tapioca jello and vanilla pudding mixes in a pan. Add 3 cups water and heat over medium high heat stirring constantly until it comes to a full boil, stir for 3 minutes. Pour into a bowl and let chill in fridge until set.
Fold in oranges (or fruit of choice) and whipped cream and chill.
