Mandarin Orange Tapioca Jell-O Dessert

Submitted by JEN

This recipe is quite refreshing, and comes in really handy when you have a lot of left-over mandarin oranges from Chinese New Year. You can also buy those canned mandarin oranges, if you are too busy, or if it is not a mandarin oranges season.


  • 2 packets tapioca pudding mix
  • 1 (3oz.) box of orange jelly mix
  • 2 2/3 cups water
  • 1 tube (8oz.) Cool Whip whipped cream
  • 2 mandarin oranges, peeled and separated


  1. Place tapioca mix, orange jelly mix and water in a small pot, bring to a boil, and cook till it thickens; stir constantly.
  2. Remove from heat while continue to stir constantly, let it cool down.
  3. When it is cool, mix in the whipped cream and mandarin oranges and transfer into dessert bowls.
  4. Place them in the refrigerator to set.

Versatility Note:

  1. You can obviously replace the mandarin oranges with other citrus fruits.
