  1. Lightly grease a ring mold or 9x9-inch square pan.
  2. Drain the mandarin oranges and reserve juice. Add cold water to the juice, if necessary, to make 1 cup of liquid.

I used sugar free orange gelatin and reduced fat sour cream. I actually made these into freezer pops using dixie cups and popsicle sticks. HOLY FRIJOLES, was this SO. FREAKING. GOOD. All of us were "mmmm-ing" over this dessert, even my husband who swears up and down that he hates "dreamsicles". This is one of the best things I've had in a LONG time. NOTE: To make this a little easier to prepare, if you can soften your sherbet as much as you can without it going completely liquid and beat that in with the soft-set gelatin, then fold in the sour cream and fruit, it turns out a lot better. It dosen't get gross that way.


Very good. It has an unusual taste with the sour cream, but we really liked it. I have made it several times for different functions and always get praises for it!!!


This has been a huge hit both times I served it. I've made with and without the pineapple chunks. Absolutely delicious and very refreshing for spring/summer. Thanks, Susan!
