Mr. Food: Dreamy Creamy Pudding

Orange creamsicle is a classic flavor that we just keep on coming back to, especially when it comes to this Dreamy Creamy Pudding! It’s one of our favorite summertime desserts – but we’re reaching for it all year!

What You’ll Need

  • 1 (3-ounce) package orange gelatin
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 cup ice cold water
  • 1 (3.5-ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix, reserve 1 tablespoon
  • 3 cups heavy cream
  • 3/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

What to Do

  1. In a large bowl, combine gelatin and boiling water; stir until gelatin is dissolved. Stir in cold water and let sit 5 minutes. Beat in dry pudding mix until thoroughly combined. Refrigerate 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, beat heavy cream, reserved 1 tablespoon pudding mix, the confectioners’ sugar, and vanilla extract until stiff peaks form. Fold 1/2 of whipped cream into gelatin mixture until thoroughly combined.
  3. Divide 1/2 of pudding mixture into 6 parfait glasses or a serving bowl. Layer evenly with remaining whipped cream, and top with remaining pudding mixture. Refrigerate 1 hour or until ready to serve.

Notes

  • For an extra summery look, garnish your parfaits with fresh mint and orange slices!
