orange creamsicle dessert

To make it diabetic-friendly, choose the sugar-free Jello and instant pudding mixes. I usually just heat the water in the microwave for 60-90 seconds to make the jello. I have taken this to dinners where they ask for the recipe, and love that it is so easy!! You can substitute different flavors of jello and fruit, if desired.
