Jello Oranges


Jello Oranges will brighten up your April Fools day this year! This recipe is one of my favorite ones to make for the annual prankster’s holiday because it is so easy! And people love the illusion of these jello filled orange segments.

Start by halving some oranges and hollowing out the orange fruit. Ensure that only the peel is left. Make jello by following the package instructions. Pour the jello into the orange halves. The peel acts as a jello mould. Leave to set in the refrigerator. Serve once the jello has set!

To make Jello Oranges, you will need the following ingredients:

Jello oranges is something I never even pictured before, but I'm glad I found it, going to be making this a lot more often because it's the most unique dessert i've ever seen.
