This recipe is insanely easy, and takes very little time to throw together. Even if you are running late. And it is a hit at all family gatherings. And it leaves the kids wondering “is this a dessert or side dish?”
So if you are looking for an easy dessert or jello salad to take to one of the many potlucks that will be showing up this Holiday season; try what my sister calls Orange Fluff!
Jello Salad with Cottage Cheese
- Mix mandarin oranges & juice with jello packet until jello is dissolved
- Add Cottage cheese and cool whip and marshmallows
- Fold until fluffed and well blended
- Serve immediately
The is a fantastic recipe to take to family gatherings or potluck meals. It is incredibly easy to mix up and is a hit with all the kids! And little do they know they are actually getting in some protein! They just think it’s a fun dessert.
Though you should hope there aren’t any leftovers because it doesn’t turn out great after the first day. It’s not so fluffy and a little runny as it all separates.
Another important step you need to remember is to thaw the cool whip. I tried making this the other day without realizing my cool whip wasn’t thawed. Yeah, still frozen hard after I dropped it into the mix.
I figured, “oh I’ll just leave it there and let it thaw, then mix it up. Oh, It’ll be fine.”
Yeah, not so much. It turned into a runny soupy mess. It still tasted fine but the texture was completely off and not easy to eat.
To mix it up, try some fun add-ins like Coconut, or maybe mini chocolate chips!
So while this recipe is easy to make, it’s not foolproof. But still definitely worth the try!
