What is Fluff Salad?

Fluff salad is usually made with Cool Whip and Jello then loaded with berries. This recipe DOES NOT use Cool Whip. I don’t have anything against it, I just prefer this recipe with good old whipped cream, it just makes it so much creamier and this berry cheesecake fluff recipe comes together in a short amount of time!!

How to Make Berry Fluff?

This simple recipe just has a few ingredients and can be ready in 20 minutes!! Start with room temperature cream cheese. You want it to be soft enough that when you beat it with a mixer it is nice and smooth. Slowly add in the whipped cream, vanilla and powdered sugar. Beat until the cream thickens and peaks easily.

At this point, add in the Jello and continue to beat a few minutes until well combined.


Once your fluff is a mixed you can add in the goodies. Simply fold in the sliced strawberries, blueberries and marshmallows until everything is covered in delicious, creamy fluff!! Place the salad in a serving bowl, cover and chill for 5-10 minutes before serving. This will allow the Jello to fully incorporate and not be grainy.

Can I make this Fluff Salad Ahead?

I would make this salad just before serving. I will last a day in the refrigerator if you have left overs, you can store them in an air tight container. This is best served fresh because the strawberries tend to lose moisture the more they are in the salad, causing it to become a little watery.
