Last Minute Potluck: Fruit Fluff Recipe

This quick and easy fruit fluff recipe is something my mom makes frequently and everyone loves it. We’ve all had it happen – you get invited to a potluck but you don’t have time to make anything too fancy. This is so simple and makes a nice little sweet side dish!


  • 2 cans of Fruit Cocktail
  • 1 tub of whipped topping

Fruit Fluff Recipe:

  1. Drain fruit cocktail and add to bowl
  2. Add whipped topping and mix
  3. Refrigerate a few hours to help it thicken up (plus I think it tastes better cold, but you can eat it immediately if you want though!)

Add some pizzazz:

I took my mom’s “secret” recipe and added a twist. I take 1 small package (4 serving size) of orange Jello and mix it in. Makes it orange colored and adds flavor and a bit of texture.
