Strawberry Fluff Ingredients

Strawberry Fluff raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

  • 1 (3-ounce) box strawberry jello mix
  • 1 cup water, boiling
  • 1 cup crushed ice
  • 1 (3.4-ounce) package of instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 8-ounce tub of whipped topping (Cool Whip), thawed
  • 16 ounces fresh strawberries, quartered (about 2 cups)
  • 8-ounce can crushed pineapple, drained
  • 2 cups mini marshmallows

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

STRAWBERRY JELLO: This great recipe would be tasty with a variety of different flavors of jello. Orange jello would make for an orange fluff salad. For a peaches ‘n cream flavor, peach jello would also be super yummy.

STRAWBERRIES: If you choose to change the jello flavor in this easy recipe, I recommend changing the fruit. For example, if you go with orange jello, try adding mandarin oranges instead of strawberries. 

How to Make This Strawberry Fluff Recipe

OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS

This jello strawberry fluff is such a pretty color; using a see-through bowl such as a trifle bowl would be a great way to show off the lovely pink color.

STEP ONE: Combine strawberry jello powder and boiling water in a large bowl. Whisk to dissolve all of the jello. Add ice and stir until ice is melted.

STEP THREE: Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 15 minutes.

STEP FOUR: Fold whipped topping into the jello/pudding mixture until combined.

STEP FIVE: Gently stir in strawberries, pineapple, and miniature marshmallows.

PRO TIP:

Stir all the ingredients together carefully as you don’t want to break apart the fruit pieces.

STEP SIX: Refrigerate for at least one hour before serving.

PRO TIP:

For best results, make sure you give your strawberry marshmallow fluff at least 1 hour of chilling time. It allows all of the yummy flavors to blend together.
