There is nothing better than sitting in the winter time and drinking a nice cup of tea with a good piece of fruit. During the winter, one of my favorite fruits to eat are mandarins. They are so sweet and succulent and makes me think of a warm day on a beach. Recently, I became introduced to a great brand, Halos Mandarins, and they quickly became a fan favorite in my household.

DSC 0357 1024x682 Orange Creamy Jello Pie Using Halos Mandarins! #HalosFunYou might ask why I love the Halos brand so much and the answer is very easy- they are incredibly juicy, sweet, take no time to peel, and are seedless. Each Halos Mandarin you consume was made right in California and are void of any GMO’s! Each bite of Halos Mandarins is sweet and delicious, and best of all, all-natural! I would be lying if I didn’t tell you that since I got introduced to the Halos brands, my family has gone through at least a dozen Halos a week! They make a perfect snack choice for both the kids and I. Since my kids give me the hardest times with fruits, I thought that they would  give me another problem once they tasted the Halos Mandarins. However, the first thing Hayley said to me was, “Mommy…This is so delicious!” I could not agree more!DSC 0364 1024x682 Orange Creamy Jello Pie Using Halos Mandarins! #HalosFun

While we enjoy the Halos by itself, I thought it might be fun to try to create a recipe with the Halos Mandarins. When I was on a cruise last year, I became introduced to an Orange Jello Salad that I saw being served in the buffet area. I thought to myself, that why not try recreating this desert in the confines of my home. Not only would it taste good, but I would make it so it would be a healthy desert option. I played around with it until I came up with the perfect ingredients and directions. I hope you enjoy my version of the Orange Creamy Jello Pie!DSC 0372 1024x682 Orange Creamy Jello Pie Using Halos Mandarins! #HalosFun

Ingredients:

DSC 0353 1024x682 Orange Creamy Jello Pie Using Halos Mandarins! #HalosFun-1 box of orange jello (find in your baking section)

-1 box of lemon pudding mix ( I used the fat free one and instant to make it easier)

-1 box of vanilla pudding mix (used instant as well)

- 4 cups water

- 8 Halos Mandarins

-8 oz. of pineapple tidbits in juice (make sure to drain the juice)

-6 oz. of cool whip

-1 tsp. freshly squeezed juice ( I squeezed one Halos Mandarin to get my juice)

Directions:

1. Combine lemon pudding mix, vanilla pudding mix, orange jello, freshly squeezed juice, and water in a bowl. Mix well and transfer to a pot.

2. Heat on medium heat until the mixture is a thick consistency. It takes about 15 minutes to get a good, thick mixture on medium heat. Be patient for this- make sure it is not watery. Once thick, shut off stove and wait until it is cool.DSC 0375 1024x682 Orange Creamy Jello Pie Using Halos Mandarins! #HalosFun

    This is a very interesting recipe. I have never heard of a pie made with oranges, there’s lemon meringue pie and key lime, but this is the first pie made with oranges that I have ever seen. Thank you for sharing this very interesting recipe.
