Orange Sherbet Jello

Very refreshing!

If you want something quick and refreshing to go with soup or sandwiches this would be a good choice. It does not take long and is super easy, and very kid friendly.

I usually just put it into a pretty bowl or individual cups. The mold takes a little longer because of making sure it is chilled properly for perfect unmolding. But I thought it would be fun to have it this way for a change.

3 ingredients:

2 small boxes orange jello
2 small boxes pineapple jello
4 cups (1 quart) orange sherbet
4 cups boiling water

In a medium sized bowl pour boiling water over mixed jello.

Stir until jello is dissolved.

Add the sherbet.

It's easiest if  you let it sit for a bit to let the sherbet melt a little. Then stir until completely dissolved.

This is really foamy because I rushed it a little. If you don't want the foam just spoon it off or when stirring give the sherbet more time to dissolve and don't stir real fast.

Prepare the mold by spraying it generously with olive oil spray. Making sure you get it on all sides.

Then take a paper towel and wipe excess oil away. This will help when you go to unmold your jello and make the process so much easier.

Pour jello into mold.

Do not overfill.

Place the lid on top and refrigerate overnight or until very firm.

When you are ready to unmold it, prepare your serving plate and dip the bottom of the mold into warm water for about 30-60 seconds. Not too long or the jello will melt and be a little runny over the top when unmolded.

Remove the lid and turn it onto the serving plate and very carefully and slowly unseal the center part.

Then again carefully and slowly remove the outer part of the mold.

Aaahhh, perfect! Garnish as desired.

Be Blessed!

  1. Martha, I LOVE gelatin! And yours not only looks good, but is beautifully displayed. After viewing pics of your gelatin, I feel like getting out my tupperware mold and whipping up a gelatin mold.
