I thought with BBQ season coming upon us, this might be a good recipe to put OUT THERE so you can all have something refreshing and delightful (and easy-to-make) to take to a BBQ. Thanks Shauna!
8 oz. container cool whip (can use light)
1 box orange jell-o (can use sugar free)
16 oz. container cottage cheese (can use low fat)
1 15-oz. can mandarin oranges, drained and segments cut in 1/2
1. Mix cool whip and jell-o together, add in cottage cheese and then oranges.
2. Put in nice serving bowl. Let set in refrigerator for 15-30 minutes (although it is ready almost immediately).
3. Serve and enjoy!
variations: the options are endless; here are a few...
Add sliced strawberries with strawberry jell-o
Add raspberries with raspberry jell-o
Add sliced strawberries and sliced kiwi with strawberry jell-o
