This recipe is wonderful to make for children and adults alike.

What you'll need

  • 8 med oranges (need only the rinds)
  • 2 pkg. of orange sugar-free gelatin (0.30 or 8.5g)
  • 1 tbsp. light whipped cream from a pressurized container (16 total tablespoons)
  • 16 small mandarin orange pieces (from canned in juice)


  • Step 1
    Take individual oranges and cut them in half (between the 2 ends)
  • Step 2
    Use a sharp knife to cut the edible part of the orange out of the rind. Take care not to damage the rind as it will be the "bowl" for the dessert. Dry out the bowl with a paper towel.
  • Step 3
    Make the gelatin according to package directions with the hot water. Only use 1/2 cup cold water instead of 1 cup for each package of gelatin
  • Step 4
    Pour the gelatin into the orange bowls.
  • Step 5
    Put into refrigerator to harden.
  • Step 6
    Right before serving, top each bowl with 1 tablespoons of whipped cream and 1 mandarin orange section.
  • Step 7
    Serve Immediately.
