Looking for a cool, easy dessert recipe? Here is a very good one. From the Taste of Home’s Budget Suppers, the recipe for Orange whip was easy to make and easy on the budget. We had it with whipped cream on top.
I started out with squeezing oranges, but after six only gave me about a cup of juice, I added Tropicana orange juice for the rest of the juice. Worked fine. I did put a small amount of orange peel in to add a little more fresh flavor. All bottled orange juice would work well also. A small amount of orange zest or lemon zest would perk it up. If you can find Valencia oranges which are juice oranges go for all fresh juice.
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
⅓ cup sugar
⅛ teaspoon salt
1 - ¾ cups hot orange juice (150°)
Whipped topping if desired
In a mixing bowl, combine the gelatin, sugar and salt’ add the hot orange juice and stir until the gelatin dissolves. Chill until slightly thickened, about 1 -½ hours.
Beat on low speed until light and fluffy. Spoon into dessert dishes; chill until firm.
