Drain the pineapple juice from the pineapple, setting aside a small amount.
Mix the orange Jello®with the pineapple juice to taste. (Use half of the Jello®mixture for a hint of orange flavoring or use all of the mix for a burst of orange)
Mix the Jello®and juice well until the Jello®is dissolved, and the mixture is smooth.
Mix the dissolved orange Jello®into the yogurt / Dream Whip®mixture. Mix well with the hand whisk or on the low setting of an electric mixer. This should remain light and fluffy.
Pour pineapple onto paper towels on a plate and blot as dry as possible. When the pineapple is quite dry, gently stir into the yogurt. Cool in the refrigerator for 45-minutes to an hour.
Spoon yogurt into dessert cups or over sliced Angel Food cake. Top with whipped topping and enjoy!
Variation of this dessert:
Use mandarin oranges in place of the pineapple. Be sure to drain and blot the fruit before adding to the yogurt.
