TRIPLE ORANGE JELLO SALAD
“Another recipe from Mom. (What can I say, I love her food, I know you’re thinking.) Years went by before I could get the recipe from her, but once I did, I hurried right here to share! I know I’ve had it forever, but I still felt the need to share. Enjoy!”

- 1(6 ounce) package orange Jell-O
- 1pint Orange sherbet, softened

- 8ounces Cool Whip, thawed (I only use about 3/4 of the container)
- Jello should be added to a basin of boiling water. Add the orange sherbet and continue stirring after the liquid has completely dissolved. (It helps if the sherbet is softened in the fridge for an hour or two before mixing it with the Jello.)

- Fill a food processor with orange segments and Jello. Just combine the Cool Whip after adding it to the processor. 2 hours or overnight in the refrigerator.

Orange Creamsicle Jello Mold
A few cupboard staples are all that are needed to make this wonderful, mousse-like Orange Creamsicle Jello Mold. Perfect for a potluck or Sunday brunch!
Oh, how I adore Jello. Actually, I’m shocked that this is my first Belly Full article about a Jello recipe. I adore the smooth, wiggly texture, which is probably the same reason why some people don’t. But this Orange Creamsicle Jello is lighter, almost like mousse. In your mouth, it almost melts.
Funny thing is, the recipe for this Orange Creamsicle Jello was initially published in Fluff. The ones I’m referring to taste and look like Ambrosia. It was prepared for Thanksgiving last year by my mother-in-law Val. When we had lunch at my mother’s house in December, she made it again because everyone enjoyed it so much. She changed it into a Jello mold instead. Which was fantastic.
You only need five simple ingredients
I’ve created this in a variety of ways so far. they are all wonderful as well. Without any Mandarin oranges, with Mandarin oranges that are whole, and with mashed-up Mandarin oranges. Because you get a cleaner slice when cutting into the Jello, I prefer them mashed together. Before adding the mandarin oranges, cool the gelatin until it is extremely thick but not totally set. This will prevent the mandarin oranges from floating to the top as seen in the images.
You will also need a Jello mold
I love the mold I have, which is this one. It is a 6-cup reduction of the conventional bundt pan, making it taller but smaller overall. I think this presentation is prettier. But you can also use a regular-sized bundt pan! (If you don’t have a Jello mold, you can even use a 9-by-13-inch pan; just slice and serve from there; there’s no need to invert onto a plate.)
Tips for getting the Creamsicle Jello out of the mold
1. Fill a bowl, that’s larger than your Jello mold, with hot water.
2. Dip the Jello mold three times in hot water, or place the mold in warm water for 4-5 seconds.
3. Using your finger or a small spatula, gently press the Jello around the edge. Gently pull away from the edge of the jello.
4. Place a serving plate on top of the mold and gently flip it over.
5. Place your hands over both the base of the plate and the base of the mold. Shake quickly and sharply a couple of times and the Jello should release.
Jello will melt, so the longer you keep it inside of the hot water the more of the outer surface will melt and you could end up with Jello soup!

Unbelievable Benefits of Eating an Orange Every Day
Oranges are pretty awesome. They’re convenient, they’re tasty and—most important—they’re good for you. Oranges have long been a halftime staple for athletes, and an orange makes for a great snack at any time. Here are seven amazing benefits of regularly eating oranges.
1. Oranges Keep Your Eyes Healthy and Your Vision Sharp
Oranges’ incredibly high vitamin C concentration is arguably their most noteworthy nutritional feature. A medium-sized orange has 116% of your daily value in it.
Without intending to make a pun, vitamin C is excellent for eye health. By lowering your risk of cataracts, fostering healthy ocular blood vessels, and decreasing the onset of age-related macular degeneration, vitamin C improves your ability to see.
Oranges are also rich in beta-carotene, which our bodies convert into vitamin A to improve our night vision. The leading factor in childhood blindness that is preventable is a vitamin A deficiency. A lack of vitamin A causes an estimated 250,000–500,000 youngsters to become blind every year.
- Oranges Decrease Stroke Risk
It has been demonstrated that consuming flavanones, a chemical substance present in citrus fruits like oranges and grapefruits, greatly lowers the risk of ischemic stroke. About 87 percent of strokes are ischemic strokes, which happen when a blood vessel that provides blood to the brain is blocked.
The discovery was made as a result of an extensive investigation at Norwich Medical School that examined the dietary intake of approximately 70,000 women over the course of 14 years. The researchers discovered that after controlling for various variables, the women who ingested the most flavanones had a 19% lower risk of ischemic stroke than the women who consumed the least. Flavanone was usually consumed by the ladies in this study in the form of oranges, orange juice, grapefruits, and grapefruit juice.
Consuming vitamin C may also help prevent hemorrhagic stroke, a less common but frequently more fatal type of stroke. According to a recent study, people who had hemorrhagic strokes typically had low levels of vitamin C, but others who hadn’t had strokes had normal levels.
- Oranges Help Control Appetite
A good source of fiber is oranges. 12 percent of your daily value can be found in a single fruit.
A fiber-rich diet has a number of advantages. The Mayo Clinic claims that it promotes regular bowel movements, decreases cholesterol levels, regulates blood sugar, preserves colon health, and helps people reach a healthy weight. According to the Harvard School of Public Health, fiber seems to lower the chance of developing heart disease, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.
The fact that fiber slows down digestion and makes you feel fuller for longer after eating is one of its most intriguing effects. Anyone searching for a midday snack to tide them over until supper or someone trying to reduce weight may find this to be of great assistance.
- Oranges Can Prevent Cancer
According to the American Institute for Cancer Research, fruits in general “probably” lessen the risk of lung, stomach, mouth, pharynx, larynx, and esophageal cancer, while dietary fiber “convincingly” lowers the risk of colorectal cancer.
Citrus limonoids, a substance present in citrus fruits like oranges, have demonstrated excellent anti-cancer properties in lab studies, including the capacity to fight malignancies of the mouth, stomach, colon, lung, and breast.
- Oranges Support Optimal Skin Health
An orange a day could lead to healthier skin. Oranges are incredibly high in vitamin C, which aids in the body’s synthesis of collagen, a protein that is essential for the development of healthy skin. The high beta-carotene concentration in oranges also aids in the production and processing of vitamin A, which promotes the proliferation of skin cells.
- Oranges Maintain Healthy Blood Vessels
A recent study from the University of Colorado Boulder found that regular vitamin C supplementation may be extremely helpful in preventing vascular disease.
The amount of ET-1 activity in the obese participants was observed by the researchers. Adults who are overweight or obese have higher levels of the vessel-constricting protein ET-1. This raises their risk of vascular disease and increases the likelihood that their vessels will contract.
