Reviews for Orange Dream Cups
"prepare orange pulp firstput "left-over" orange juice in the cup and finish filling the cup with warm water and heat to boiling...dissolve orange gelatin...finish preparing the recipe as given...better flavor...fresherjean good"
"I found that leaving the cups in the freezer for 2 hours was not necessary and took too long to defrost. I also found that one needs to have oranges that are flat on stem and blossom ends or they do not set well in dishes. I agree that they were time consuming.Bea M"
"I made this recipe for my girlfriends birthday. It doesn't take long in the refrigerator b/4 you can put into orange cups. I would take out of freezer and set b/4 serving. We put in microwave for 30 sec. and it was a big hit."
"I found it was too time comsuming"
"I made this recipe for a gathering that I attended of my girlfriends, most of whom I have known for more than 40 years. They absolutely loved it, but I do suggest that you take it out of the freezer a while before serving so that it has time to soften a bit."
"I made this with sugar-free gelatin and it tasted great."
"My grandkids loved this...Good Job"
"Everyone thought these cute cups tasted just like orange sherbert. However, they were sort of turned off by the large chunks of orange. (It's not that they don't like oranges but I would suggest cutting them up REALLY well for a better result.) Overall, they were very tasty and definitely an eye-pleaser as well."
"This technique could work with last week's Fluffy Key Lime recipe, substituting orange flavor Jello and Orange or Lemon yogurt for the Lime items.Lulan"
"The texture of vanilla pudding would not be like frozen yogurt (I think you're thinking regular yogurt is in this recipe). The frozen yogurt would be closer to orange sherbet in texture."
"I wonder if vanilla pudding would work instead of the yogurt. SChipps"
"The lemon one sounds yummy too!"
"Wonder if you couldn't do this with lemons, only reduce the amount of pulp/flesh used and maybe add ultra low fat cool whip once the filling has thickened some. Just a thought"
"I would imagine that you would use 1/2 the gelatin and take the other half and continue to make the gelatin as jello. Reducing the rest of the ingredients would not be hard."
" Just cut the recipe in half.
"Is this ice cream yogurt?and do you have a receipt for just for 4servings?"
"Is it regular or sugar-free gelatin?"
"It's worth a try. I've made something similar with Orange sherbet. I'd add fresh orange juice in part of the water called for in gelatin.Got to make this one soon, thank you Taste of Home and Elizabeth Alvarez.Go sugarl-less,Bea"
"or maybe fat-free or sugar-free cool whip or even milk???"
"I wonder if you could just use vanilla yogurt [ not frozen]? Leave me a comment if you have one....firstname.lastname@example.org"
