This is a great summertime dessert that is always loved by the whole family!  Creamy whipped topping and oranges bring back memories of being a kid and enjoying Creamsicles with my sister!

This recipe calls for Orange Extract.. you can make it without but this just adds a little bit extra orange flavor.  It’s inexpensive and found in the baking aisle near the food coloring and vanilla.

This can be served soft or you can put it in the freezer overnight for a frozen treat!  We love it both ways!

Dreamy Creamsicle Pie

Ingredients

  • 1 Box Orange Jell-o (4 serving size)
  • 8 oz tub whipped topping such as Cool Whip, divided
  • 1 teaspoon orange extract
  • zest of one orange (optional)
  • 2/3 cup Boiling water

  • 1 store bought (or homemade) graham cracker crust
  • Canned or Jarred Mandarin Oranges for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  1. In bowl, combine Jell-o powder with 2/3 cup boiling water. Stir until powder is completely dissolved. Place 1/2 cup ice into a 1-cup measuring cup and top to 1 cup with cold water. Add to the Jell-o mixture and stir until ice is almost melted. Discard ice.
  2. In a large bowl, fold together Jell-o mixture, orange extract, orange zest if using and 2/3 of the tub of Cool Whip (reserve the remaining 1/3 for topping). Pour the mixture into the pie crust and refrigerate 4 hours or overnight. Top with remaining cool whip and mandarin oranges if desired.

Notes

Note: This pie can be served frozen. If freezing pie, let the orange layer firm up in the fridge for about 15 minutes and then top with cool whip. Slice pie before freezing (this makes for easy serving) and freeze overnight. Add mandarin oranges just prior to serving.

      While I haven’t made this specific pie with sugar free jello, I have made a VERY similar one that worked with sugar free… I find it to be a little bit softer with sugar free so I would recommend serving it frozen!

    is it possible to substiture real whipped cream for the cool whip as I don’t like or eat the product? I await your reply,

    I was just looking for some new dessert ideas to try and this really sounds amazing. I think it would get the boys stamp of approval which is always a plus!
