Light and airy desserts like this Easy Orange Fluff are the PERFECT way to celebrate warmer weather. We’ve mixed this dessert up a tiny bit differently because we topped it with bananas and a dollop of whipped topping. Both of those are totally optional, but it made it look quite pretty and perfect for serving up at a backyard family picnic.

Easy Orange Mousse Dessert
You will enjoy this simple, low-fat dessert if you like orange flavor. You could also easily change this up by substituting the flavor of the gelatin and adding a different fruit or berry. The possibilities are limitless!
- 1 box sugar free orange gelatin
- 1 box sugar free white chocolate pudding (you can also use vanilla)
- 1 can mandarin orange slices, drained (small or medium)
- 1 (8-ounce) tub of fat free whipped topping
- Mix gelatin together with 1 cup boiling water until gelatin has completely dissolved. Add 1 cup cold water and let it sit for 5 minutes. Using electric beater, beat in pudding mix until well combined. Fold in the drained mandarin oranges and whipped topping. Chill and serve. You can also stir it up before you serve to disperse the fruit throughout the dessert more evenly, as it does settle on the bottom when chilling.
