Description

Turn this classic Lemon Fluff Salad into a summer must-have recipe! Bursting with tart lemon flavor, with added undertones of coconut, pineapple, and fruity marshmallows, this salad will always be a hit. Super easy to prepare and can be made ahead of time!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 8 Ounces Whipped Cream (1 tub)
  • 1 Box Lemon Jello (3 ounces)
  • 1 Can Crushed Pineapple, drained (20 ounces)
  • 2 Cups Fruity Mini Marshmallows
  • 1 Cup Sweetened Shredded Coconut
  • ½ Cup Cottage Cheese
  • 1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
  • Yellow Food Dye (optional)

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, mix until well combined the whipped cream and jello (powder only).
  2. If you would like a more yellow color to your salad, add a couple of drops of yellow food dye. Mix until there are no color streaks.
  3. Fold in the remaining ingredients.
  4. Cover and place in the fridge for 1 hour before serving.

Notes

  • DO NOT prepare the Jello according to the directions on the box. You only need the powder.
  • This can be covered and stored in the fridge for up to 5 days. After a few days, it may accumulate some water. However, it’s not bad, simply drain the water and stir before serving. Do not freeze.
  • I didn’t use any food dye, but the fluff turns out really light yellow. So, if you’re looking for a brighter color for whatever reason, just add some of the dye to the whipped cream mixture before all the other ingredients are added.
  • If you don’t like the fruity marshmallows or can’t get your hands on them, normal white mini marshmallows are just fine as well.
  • If you don’t drain the crushed pineapple, it can potentially make the fluff too soupy. It doesn’t have to be perfectly drained, but mostly drained is the best.
