This is a great desert! Light fluffy and oh so very good! It taste better in the diet form then the sugar form. I have tried both and always I'am told they like the diet version better! Now that is saying something!!

Pour into the hot jell-0 and stir until dissolved. 3. Add the vanilla instant pudding to the jello and stir until blended well. 4. Put one tub of sugar free cool whip in with the other ingredients. Fold in until blended. 5. Set in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes or until firm enough to add the oranges (don't let it get too firm, you will pour it into another bowl later on). 6.

    Put jello into a pretty clear glass footed bowl. Set in the refrigerator until firm. Put rounded teaspoons of cool whip on top all around the edge of the bowl.Put the remaining oranges in between each dollop of cool whip. Put large dollop of cool whip in center and add an orange on top of that. Very pretty and taste great!
