Layered Orange Gelatin

Total Time

Prep: 15 min. + chilling


10 servings

"I reduced the calories and fat in a tangy gelatin recipe my mom gave me," explains Angie Philkill of Zeeland, Michigan. The lovely molded salad forms layers as it chills. "We especially enjoy it with ham," she adds.


  • 2 packages (.3 ounce each) sugar-free orange gelatin
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 1 can (15 ounces) mandarin oranges
  • 3 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese, cubed
  • 1 pint orange sherbet, softened
  • 1-1/2 cups reduced-fat whipped topping


  1. In a bowl, dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Drain oranges, reserving the juice; set oranges aside. Stir juice into gelatin. Add cream cheese; beat until smooth. Stir in sherbet and whipped topping. Pour into a 6-cup ring mold coated with cooking spray. Top with oranges. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
