So, I have new obsession, and it doesn’t even involve peanut butter. I know, try to contain your surprise. It’s this pink fluff. I don’t know what it’s really called; I got the recipe from my friend, Amanda (thanks, Amanda!). But it is so delicious and addicting, I thought Million Dollar Pink Fluff was an appropriate title to get your attention. This is a super easy side (or salad or dessert), that comes together in a flash. I literally went to the store and made it all in a span of 20 minutes. You don’t even have top chop anything. The extent of the skills involved include opening cans and boxes and stirring. You can also easily double it for a bigger crowd. It’s not too bad for you either – there’s fruit in it, and I use sugar free Jell-O and lite or fat free whipped topping. It’s so refreshing and light, yet bright and full of flavor. You can vary it by using different flavors of Jell-O, but I like it so much that I’ll probably be sticking to the original recipe for a while. (I do recommend using Jell-O brand here. I’ve tried the store brand and it doesn’t seem to pack as much of a punch.) This will definitely be making an appearance again and again at our house this summer. It would be a great addition to any cookout…a crowd pleaser for sure! Everyone I’ve made it for so far has loved it, even the pickiest of eaters.
- 2 3.4 oz boxes of sugar free raspberry Jell-O gelatin (or one large box)
- 2 3.4 oz boxes of instant vanilla pudding (or one large box)
- 1 16 oz can of pineapple tidbits, undrained
- 1 8 oz can of mandarin oranges, undrained
- 1 8 oz tub of lite or fat free whipped topping
Dump the pineapple and oranges along with their juices in a medium bowl. Stir in gelatin and pudding powders and allow to dissolve for about five mintues. Fold in the whipped topping.
See, I told you it was easy! Go ahead, try it! You’re going to love it!
