Raspberry Fluff Jell-o Salad

Light and fluffy, this Raspberry Fluff Jell-O Salad only has 5 ingredients and comes together in a matter of minutes. It's the perfect light dessert or even side dish at your potluck party.

Jello salad is a staple at our family gatherings and holiday dinners and this recipe is going to quickly become your favorite!

We have all kinds of Jello Fluff Salads on our blog:  Orange Fluff Salad, Raspberry Cheesecake Fluff Salad, Blueberry Fluff Salad, Strawberry Jello Fluff Salad, 5 Minute Fluffy Yogurt Fruit Salad, and our 5 Minute Pistachio Salad.

I think that, out of all the fluffy salads on our blog, this raspberry one is my favorite!

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 “Fluff”?

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.

Ingredients needed for this Raspberry Fluff Jello Salad:

  • 1 large box Cook and Serve Vanilla Pudding (instant pudding will not work for this recipe)
  • 1 large box Raspberry jell-o
  • 16 ounces Cool-Whip
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups raspberries (fresh or frozen)

How to make Raspberry Fluff Jello Salad:

Step 1: Add the box of pudding (make sure you use cook and serve, not instant!) and the box of Jello to a saucepan. Pour in the water and lemon juice, then bring to a boil over medium heat.

Step 2: Once it comes to a rolling boil, remove saucepan from heat and pour Jello mixture into a large bowl.

Step 3: Cover bowl with plastic wrap and place in the fridge. Let jello set for 1-2 hours.

Step 4: Beat jello with an electric mixer until it because creamy, then fold in the Cool-Whip and berries.

Step 5: Let chill in the fridge for at least 1 hour before serving (you can serve it immediately, but it has a chance to set up more if you let it chill for that 1 hour before serving).

How far in advance can I make this salad?

To be honest, I wouldn’t recommend making it more than 1 day in advance. I find that the juice from the raspberries will make the salad runny (especially if you used frozen raspberries).

For best results, make this salad the same day that you plan on eating it.

Can you make this with sugar-free jello and pudding?

I have not made this salad using sugar-free jello or pudding, but in everything that I have read about sugar-free jello, it should still work out great for this recipe!

If you try it with sugar-free jello, leave a comment below and let us know how it worked.

Can you make this with fresh whipped cream instead of cool whip?

I have never tried making this recipe without cool-whip  – the cool whip is needed to get that fluffy texture.

If you use fresh whipped cream, I am afraid that you will not get the same fluffy consistency and this recipe will not turn out the way that it’s supposed to.

If you are looking for a homemade Cool-Whip alternative, check out this recipe for Stabilized Whipped Cream – it has a more similar fluffiness to Cool-Whip.

    Thanks!! I made your orange fluff for our Easter dinner.. It was such a hit, even with the adults :) My favorite is raspberries, so I was actually going to change around the orange for raspberry...
    Great cooking minds think a like!!

      I usually make it a couple of hours in advance . . . and if we have any leftovers, I notice that sometimes the next day the juice from the raspberries kind of makes the salad runny. I definitely would not make it more than a day in advance and I think that making it the day of is the best. :)

    I tried making this with a recipe based on Orange fluff but substituted raspberry Jello. The flavor was good but the appearance was awful. It looked like a bowl full of ground chuck. Did you take any extra steps to get that nice color in your photo ?
