- Servings: 10
- 1 can (11 ounces) mandarin oranges
- 2 packages (.3 ounce each) sugar-free orange gelatin
- 2 cups boiling water

Drain oranges, reserving the juice; add enough water to juice to measure 1 cup. Refrigerate the oranges.
In a large bowl, dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Stir in reserved juice. Add sherbet, stirring until dissolved. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until thickened.
