Orange Cooler

Just in case you’re interested there is a drink I’ve been making for my wife that she is fond of. This is a smoothy sort of drink made with orange Jell-O. You might like it as well.

  • 1 0.3 Oz. Pkg Suger-free Orange Jell-O
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 tsp Orange Extract
  • 1 tsp grated lemon rind
  • 2 pkgs Sweet-n-Low
  • 4 fresh strawberries — capped
  • A handful of ice cubes

Mix up the Jell-O according to package directions and set aside to cool.

Beat the egg whites with a mixer until stiff.

Mix the Jell-O with the egg whites. Add the orange extract, the lemon rind and the Sweet-n-Low to the mixture and put it all in a blender. Add the strawberries and ice cubes and blend on medium until smooth.

This will make about four six-ounce servings.

While I like them Gerri is crazy about them so I’ll generally just put the blender pitcher in the refrigerator and just pull it out and reblend it any time she wants another one. The Jell-O does set up when left in the refrigerator but it blends back out very nicely just by running the blender again. Try it, I think you’ll like it.
