Strawberry Fluff Jello Salad

November 23, 2012

Strawberry Fluff Salad

For Thanksgiving this year I was asked to bring a Jello Salad.  Typically my family makes some sort of cranberry Jell-o salad, or orange salad. But – I’m not a fan of mandarin oranges or cranberries in Jell-o.  I figured since I’m in the ‘pinterest’ generation – I could find something else amazing that I’d love even more.

But, I didn’t.

Everything I saw had cottage cheese or mandarin oranges or was otherwise gross-looking.  So I figured I’d make my own using an adaptation an Orange Fluff salad I found online to make my own Strawberry Fluff Jello Salad.

Not only was it a big hit at Thanksgiving – I was asked to bring it again, at Christmas. So I figured I’d share the recipe with all of you Smile

  1. 1 large package Cook and Serve vanilla pudding
  2. 1 large package Strawberry Jell-o
  3. 2 cups water
  4. 16 oz Cool-Whip (lite or fat-free is fine)
  5. 1/2 bag mini marshmallows
  6. 1 container fresh strawberries cut into bite size pieces
  1. Pour dry pudding packet and Jell-o packet into a small pan and add 2 cups water.
  2. Stir well over medium heat until it boils.
  3. Remove from the stove and pour into a very large mixing bowl or into your electric mixer bowl
  4. Refrigerate until it thickens. (This takes apx 1-2 hours.)
  5. When you remove from the fridge, use a mixer, hand mixer, or whisk (with a LOT of muscle) to whip it until it is creamy and very few lumps are left.
  6. Add the Cool Whip – and mix lightly.
  7. Lightly fold in marshmallows and strawberries – save a few strawberries and marshmallows for a garnish.
  8. Pour into a nicer dish – because this one will be messy. Garnish.
  9. Cover and refrigerate until ready to go.
  1. I have been successful doing this with Raspberries and a Raspberry Jello as well - although my family much prefers the strawberry version.
  2. A commenter mentioned she loves using chocolate chips to add a 'crunch' to the recipe.
Grinning Cheek to Cheek
Happy Cookin’!

***NOTE*** A commenter mentioned she had the feeling that the salad needed something more crunchy in the salad… she added chocolate chips – and it was a HIT!  

SHORT ON TIME??? Try the Strawberry Yogurt Fluff Salad!

It’s a great second choice, and takes 5 minutes!

I finally went to the store and got everything I needed to make it. I made it yesterday and I was in HEAVEN!!! This is by far one of the best things I have ever put in my mouth! I love it and so did my mom!! Thank you so much for sharing with us!

    • Yay! I’m so glad that you guys loved it! It’s one of our favorites, too! You can even switch it up – we’ve tried raspberry – which I liked – but still Strawberry was ultimate 😉

  20. You have no idea how long I have been searching for this recipe! I am a lover of strawberries! I was wondering if you would mind that I share this on my site? I would of course link it with your site!

  21. My mom and my aunt both make a jello salad similar to this! They’re great!

  22. Jessica White says:

    This looks so yummy, I’ll be making this for dessert tonight!

  23. This sounds so good. I cant wait till we can buy fresh strawberries so I can make it . It is so refreshing looking. thanks for the recipe and pictures

  24. Bobby Tarumi says:

    This caught my eye immediately! Looks great! I’m gonna use lime jello and make a St. Patrick’s Day version!

  28. Robin Wilson says:

    I must say that I am always the one that will shy away from the jello salad on the table. You know which one I mean, grandma’s version? But this one looks very appetizing! Light and pretty and yummy! Refreshing for the summer too! Thanks for sharing !

  29. shelly peterson says:

    This looks so yummy! Glad I found this right before Thanksgiving because I’m making it! :)

  30. Deb Schneider says:

    Can’t wait to try this. In the orange version I make the Jello mixture goes in the blender for the whipping process….lot less muscle needed and the Jello comes out light and foamy….perfect for folding in your last ingredients.

  31. Amy Skryja says:

    My in laws make something similar.For a dessert version, add cubes of angel food cake folded in at the end!

  32. Anonymous says:

    Have you tried making this the day before a big meal (like make Sunday evening and eat it Monday evening?) Does it still taste the same or does the texture change? Thanks!

  33. Iused electric beaters and it worked great when beating the jello mixture . Then I added the cool whip a cup at a time.

    • That’s so smart! I guess I hadn’t thought about it since my electric beaters only went to the first speed for the last year or so… Then I got a new one for Christmas this year, but haven’t made it since!
      I’ll try that next time :)

  34. Stephanie says:

    Thanks. We used this for my daughter’s first communion reception. It looked so pretty.

  35. James Robert says:

    I found it, my sister makes this and said she got the recipe from your blog and here it is. She has made it and the kids all loved it. Now I can make it for all of mine here too.

  36. This sounds so good and perfect for a side during summer.

  37. Deborah says:

    Thanks for sharing the recipe Amy. I’ll have to try this but I think I’ll tweak it a little and instead of putting bite size pieces of strawberries in it I’ll let it set and then cover with a strawberry glaze. I found if you wish to make a jello salad that has cottage cheese in it you can substitute cream cheese. The consistency is similar to a mousse but it still taste the same but creamy.

  38. This was delicious, BUT make sure you use the Cook & serve pudding and NOT the instant, I found out the hard way there is a difference!

  39. Joyce Mosley says:

    I am making this for our church group meeting tomorrow night. I hope mine turns out looking as good as the photo above. Can’t wait to hear what they all have to say about it. (BTW…I found out the local store does not sell pints of strawberries any more…it is all in one pound packages. So I just estimated what looked right as I chopped the strawberries).

  40. My mom loves this recipe! She thinks she’s had something similar before but we definitely want to do this one. Thanks for sharing!

  41. Question: To save time, can I make this salad the night before?

  42. Jennifer says:

    The first step in this recipe is not 100% clear. “Pour pudding and Jell-O into a pan….”. Since neither pudding nor Jell-o come straight from their packages already made into “pudding” and “Jell-O, I am second guessing if this means to just pour the dry contents of the boxes into the pan or if you first make them both according to directions. As one who is completely unfamiliar with this recipe, it is honestly hard to guess. Thank you.

  43. I made this recipe yesterday. At first I was a little concerned because it seemed to have a gummy texture. That dissipates quickly and you are left with pure deliciousness. However, I felt like it needed some crunch to it and I didn’t think nuts would be a good fit to this salad. So it dawned on me!!! What do I like to eat with strawberries?…Chocolate of course!!! I love chocolate dipped strawberries!!! So I dumped some chocolate chips into my Strawberry fluff!!! For my family and I the chocolate chips complimented the already deliciousness of this recipe. Thanks Amy for sharing this recipe!!!
