How to Make Raspberry Fluff

Get ready for the easiest, tastiest fruit salad ever! Simply stir together the ingredients and then let this chill in the fridge until you’re ready to serve it!

  1. Add the Yogurt: Empty the container of yogurt into a large bowl.
  2. Combine with Pudding Mix: Add the instant pudding powder and whisk until smooth removing any lumps.
  3. Add the Cool Whip: Fold in the Cool Whip until combined.
  4. Stir in the Frozen Raspberries: The more you stir the more the berries melt and turn the fluff a pretty pink color.
  5. Serve: Enjoy right away or chill until ready to serve! The mixture will thicken as it chills.

Raspberry Fluff Variations

Fruit salads are super versatile and there are lots of ways that you can change this raspberry fluff to make it your own. Here are some options:

  • Yogurt: Switch up the yogurt and use plain or Greek yogurt. I love the vanilla yogurt in this recipe because it adds more vanilla flavor!
  • Fruit: If you don’t like raspberries then use frozen blueberries or blackberries. Frozen fruit is best because it melts and the juices add flavor and color!
  • Instant Pudding Powder: Make sure the pudding powder is instant! Switch up the flavor and use cheesecake pudding powder instead!
  • Sugar-Free Option: Make this entire salad sugar-free! I like to use sugar-free vanilla Greek yogurt, sugar-free vanilla instant pudding, and sugar-free Cool Whip! And it’s still sweet and delicious…no one will ever know!

Storing Leftovers

This raspberry fluff salad makes perfect leftovers because it thickens as it chills! Place any leftover salad in an airtight container and store it in your refrigerator. It will keep for about 2-3 days, if it lasts that long!
