Mandarin Orange Mousse - 30 Days 30 Recipes - Day 1



Are you ready?

Here's day one!

Today's recipe is Mandarine Orange Mousse.  I won't leave you in suspense, I'll tell you right off.  It was definitely NOT a hit in my house!  Ha!  But don't let my family be your judge.  I thought it was decent and was very reminiscent of an orange creamsicle.  My son thought it tasted like orange Tums.  My husband thought it tasted like chewable vitamin C.  My daughter thought it was ok.  I'm not sure I'll be making it again but it was worth a try.  I don't hate it, certainly.  It won't go to waste, but I think I'll be spending my calories differently after this one is gone!

If you love orange creamsicles and are looking for a low calorie treat, go ahead and give it a try.  You might like it!

Mandarine Orange Mousse


Ingredients:

1 box sugar free orange gelatin
1 box sugar free white chocolate pudding
1 can mandarin oranges, drained
1 8 ounce container fat free Cool Whip, thawed

Mix gelatin with 1 cup boiling water.  Dissolve gelatin completely.  Add 1 cup cold water and let sit 5 minutes.  Using electric beater, beat in pudding mix until well combined.  Fold in drained fruit and cool whip.  Chill and serve.

The original recipes says 4, 1-cup servings are 2.5 points each.  I found there to be far more points than that, but the serving size is more than a cup if you count the serving as one fourth of the recipe.
