No OSTERIZER needed, just a good ol’ fashioned wire whisk!
While it definitely lacks the complexity and depth of flavor that the Orange Velvet Pie had, the saved time makes up for it (and some fruit on top — or even mixed in before the gelatin sets — would make up for the bland flavoring). Orange Velvet Pie was never going to be a gourmet treat; it’s more something you’d take to the neighborhood potluck… and who wants to spend an hour fiddling with a dozen ingredients for that? Jell-O and Cool Whip are good enough for those people.
