I have written this recipe to make 10-12 servings, but you could easily cut it in half (use the small boxes of jello and only one 8 ounce container of Cool Whip) if you need less.

Why is this called “Jello Fluff Salad”?
The texture of this salad is light and fluffy!
Some people even add in marshmallows, which adds even more to the fluffiness of this dish.
What makes the salad so fluffy is the mixture of the Jello mix with the pudding mix – it makes everything so smooth.
Add in the fluffy Cool-Whip and it makes the perfect combination of smooth fruity flavor with fluffy whipped topping.
Ingredients needed for Strawberry Fluff Jello Salad:
- 1 large box Cook and Serve Vanilla Pudding (instant pudding will not work for this recipe)
- 1 large box strawberry jell-o
- 16 ounces Cool-Whip
- 3 cups water
- 2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
- 2-3 bananas, sliced
- 5 ounces (1/2 a bag) of mini marshmallows
How far in advance can I make this jello fluff salad?
To be honest, I wouldn’t recommend making it more than 1 day in advance.
I find that the juice from the strawberries will make the salad runny.
For best results, make this salad the same day that you plan on eating it.
