STRAWBERRY FLUFF

 6-ounce package Strawberry Jello not sugar free

2 cups hot water

1 3/4 cups cold water

 8-ounce package Cool Whip, thawed

1 pound frozen strawberries, sliced or fresh

 

In a large casserole dish, mix the Jello with hot water and cold water until completely dissolved
 
Refrigerate for about 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until Jello starts to thicken. It will still be a little runny
 
Use a whisk to mix Jello until foamy and thick.
 
Stir in whipped topping, then gently add strawberries, and refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm and ready to serve.
 
 

NOTES

Make sure you are using the large 6-ounce size of regular Jello — not sugar free.
 
If you are using frozen strawberries...use frozen berries without sauce or sugar in this recipe, or save money, and make your own frozen strawberries by slicing fresh strawberries, transferring to a large zip-top freezer bag and placing in freezer until frozen!
 
There is no cooking involved in this recipe, but there are refrigeration times, so it takes about 3 to 4 hours for it to be ready to eat.
 
ALSO
You can make this an orange fluff by using orange jello and drained mandarin oranges.
 
I make another fluff...but it uses cottage cheese, pineapple and chopped pecans. Both are great summer dishes!

You can. A lot of people on low carb eat this using sf.

My niece used to make something similar only she cubed angel food cake or pound cake and mixed it all together.

Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit, but Wisdom is knowing not to put it in a fruit salad.

@LilBitMissty -

My grandmother used to make that all the time for our birthdays!

I haven't ever heard of it since she made it.
