Thoroughly mix sour cream and thawed non-dairy whipped topping in a large bowl. I like to use a hand mixer with beaters or a wisk.
Thoroughly mix the orange gelatin into the sour cream and whipped
Fold in drained Mandarin oranges and pineapple. I use a wooden spoon for this.
Optional, gently fold in one cup of miniature marshmallows. I like to use colored, flavored miniature marshallows.
