Recipe for Strawberry “Pink Fluff”

Holiday Strawberry “Pink Fluff” is a family tradition of ours.  It started back when our kids were little and didn’t like the cream cheese in a strawberry layered salad that was my grandmother’s recipe.  My mother left out the cream cheese and just used three ingredients.  It’s been a family tradition to have this at Thanksgiving and Christmas for many years now.  In fact, I had forgotten about it this year, and our college-age son reminded me about having “Pink Fluff” for Thanksgiving.  Here’s the simple recipe:


  • Strawberry jello (small box for regular amount as pictured)
  • Frozen strawberries, 8 ounces sliced (I use whole, unsweetened.)
  • Cool Whip, 8 ounces

This is such an easy recipe.  Boil one cup water and dissolve jello.  After it’s completely dissolved, add frozen strawberries.  I usually slice them with a sharp knife after they’ve been in the hot jello mixture for a couple of minutes.  After the mixture has gotten cold, stir in half the Cool Whip.  Put mixture in pretty glass bowl and top with the remainder of the Cool Whip.

This recipe can be doubled by using a large box of jello, 16 ounces of frozen strawberries, and 12 ounces of Cool Whip (save 4 ounces for the top).
