Do you have a favorite go-to recipe when you’re craving something sweet? If I’m signed up to bring a dessert to an event, or if I’m having a sweet tooth, I reach for my fluff recipes.
My great grandmother used to make fluff for all special family occasions. They’re a basic recipe but taste delicious!
Whether you haven’t heard of fluff, or if you grew up on it as I did, I’m going to bring a variety of fluff recipes to either bring back memories or to help introduce you to this delicious dessert.
Here are the fluff recipes for what could be your new favorite dessert:
1. Strawberry Fluff Salad
If you need to feel better about indulging in these fluff recipes, you should know they’re frequently considered a “salad.”
Now, you’re off the hook and can enjoy this creamy bowl of marshmallow fluff. It’ll work as an inexpensive sweet treat or a nice end to a tasty meal.
2. Reese’s Peanut Butter Fluff Recipes
Do you love the combination of chocolate and peanut butter? You can now have it in a creamy, fluffy mixture.
It starts with Cool Whip, instant pudding mix, and cream cheese. From there, you add peanut butter and Reese cups. It’s a party in your mouth with every bite!
3. Strawberry Banana Fluff Salad
Strawberries and bananas seem to go hand in hand. Whether you’re talking about a smoothie, cake, or even this delicious fluffy dessert.
This dessert is perfect for your next picnic because it can be made ahead of time. If you’d like to indulge in a creamy banana pudding with marshmallows and chunks of fresh fruit, this is your dessert.
4. Homemade Marshmallow Fluff
Maybe you like the idea of a delicious fluffy recipe, but you don’t like the idea of it tasting like fresh fruit or even chocolate.
I’ve learned with age, not everyone is a chocaholic such as myself. This is where the original marshmallow fluff recipe enters the room and saves the day.
5. Creamsicle Fluff
When I look back over my childhood, some of my favorite memories are the small town summers where we’d bike to the local corner grocery store. There, we’d purchase creamsicles! There’s an 80’s childhood flashback which should resonate with many.
If you miss the good old days (like I obviously do) recreate them through this fluff. It has a creamy texture but tastes like an orange creamsicle.
6. Banana Pudding Fluff
I have a confession to make. My all-time favorite dessert is homemade banana pudding, and it’s embarrassing when someone brings one around me because I look like the Cookie Monster… only with banana pudding.
Do I now have you craving pudding? The good news is this fluff is easier to make than banana pudding, but it gives you the flavor you love with a different texture.
7. Banana Split Fluff Salad
I may or may not have said, “Holy moly!” when I saw this recipe. It looks better than an old-fashioned banana split!
If you’re desiring a banana split but want to skip the ice cream, this dessert has you covered. The base is banana pudding and Cool Whip. From there, nuts, cherries, crushed pineapple, and more are added for the ultimate dessert.
8. Lovely Lemon Fluff Salad
Are you a fan of lemons? If lemon is your flavor preference when picking a dessert, be sure to tune into this recipe.
The fluff recipe starts differently than the others. It does have Cool Whip, but you make the base from scratch with unflavored gelatin. From there, you make a homemade lemon curd to go in the fluff which packs a flavorful punch.
9. Cherry Fluff
Do you like desserts where you can gather all your ingredients, pour them in a bowl, stir, and you’re done?
Cherry fluff will be right up your alley if you prefer the easy route with dessert. It starts with a Cool Whip base with sweetened condensed milk. From there, cherry pie filling, crushed pineapple, coconut, and pecans are added.
10. Raspberry Marshmallow Fluff Salad
This dessert reminds me of the raspberry push-ups my grandmother would purchase from the Schwan’s man.
It has a creamy raspberry flavor because of the frozen fruit, Cool Whip, vanilla pudding, and vanilla yogurt. The dessert is completed by adding marshmallows and stirring it up until it gains a fluffy texture.
11. White Chocolate Cranberry Fluff
If you haven’t tried white chocolate pudding yet, stop what you’re doing, run to the store, grab some, and come back to me once you’ve had it. The pudding is A-MAZING!
Once you get over your shock of what you’ve been missing, toss the pudding in a bowl, add some cranberry sauce, crushed pineapple, marshmallows, pecans, and Cool Whip to create this tasty fluff recipe.
12. Cherry 7-Up Fluff
When I was a little girl, my favorite drinks were Cherry 7-Up and cranberry flavored ginger ale. I may have been a bit of an odd one.
However, if you love Cherry 7-Up, you’ll love this dessert idea. It combines the soda with cherry gelatin, cherries, mandarin oranges, bananas, and other tasty ingredients to make a mind-blowing dessert.
13. Pina Colada Fluff
Do you like Pina Coladas and getting caught in the rain? Pardon my song lyrics, but this is where Pina Coladas take me.
If you enjoy the taste of Pina Colada to the point you want to indulge in a Pina Colada flavored dessert, this is the fluff recipe for you.
14. S’mores Fluff
S’mores are for more than hanging out around a firepit. You can incorporate them into your snack time and dessert course.
Fluff doesn’t only work when eaten with a fork. With this S’mores fluff recipe, you can eat it with graham crackers for the full S’mores experience.
15. Caramel Apple Fluff
Do you have a weakness for caramel apples? I enjoy them, but I don’t like how hard they are to eat on a stick.
If you’d prefer a softer version of a caramel apple, consider making caramel apple fluff. You get the full flavor of a caramel apple, only in fluff form.
16. Classic Orange Fluff
This fluff recipe is one of my all-time favorites. It takes me back to childhood and potluck suppers, and it’s easy to make too!
If you enjoy oranges and pineapple brought together in a sweet treat, this fluff recipe will make your tastebuds dance with excitement.
17. Weight Watcher’s Oreo Fluff
Are you watching your weight but still desire something sweet to curb your cravings? Do you not want to diminish your weight loss efforts by overindulging in sugar?
This fluff recipe tastes like Oreo cookies. However, it doesn’t pack all the calories and sugar normal desserts do. Go ahead, indulge in this dessert while still watching your waistline.
18. Blueberry Fluff Salad
We grow an abundance of blueberries every year. I can’t help but wonder how I’m going to use them all as I’m picking them.
Thankfully, I found this delicious dessert which will put my homegrown blueberries to good use. If you have an abundance of blueberries too, reach for this recipe and enjoy an inexpensive yet tasty snack.
19. Angel Fluff Salad
The name should let you know you’re in for an amazing and fun snack which your kids will love to eat over and over again.
It starts off as a traditional cherry fluff. However, pineapple and coconut are added in the mix. It’s all topped off with rainbow sprinkles which put this dessert over the top.
20. Rocky Road Fluff Salad
I can’t help but wonder what amazing creations our grandparents would have come up with if the internet had been available to them as it is for us.
My grandmother made amazing fluff, but my grandfather would’ve been over the moon about this Rocky Road option. If you, too, enjoy this type of ice cream, you’ll love the fluff version.
21. Toasted Coconut Cashew Fluff
Fluff may seem like an easy kids dessert, but it can be fancied up to become a more sophisticated option for adults too.
This version of fluff is filled with coconut cream pudding, cashew milk, coconut flakes, crushed cashews, whipped cream, and marshmallows. As you can tell, it’s bursting with nutty flavor.
22. Three Ingredient Red Velvet Fluff
Fluff is a great option for a sweet dessert, but it also can give you the traditional flavors you love without the excess calories.
Red velvet cake is a traditional dessert many enjoy, but if you’re trying to avoid the extra calories, try this fluff option instead. It’ll give you the red velvet flavor in a lighter form.
23. Watergate Salad Fluff
The Watergate salad is a classic, and it’s over the top scandalous. If you’ve purchased it from your grocery store deli but want to make it on your own, you’ve come to the right place.
