Green Fluff - with COOL WHIP

I've posted about this before (on this post) - but I love this so much, I want to talk to you about it again - - mmm, Green Fluff!!

Pin It
Whenever I need to bring something to a picnic or gathering, I opt for Green Fluff.  It's delicious and super duper easy.  It always gets compliments.  Here's the recipe, straight from the little recipe book my grandma made me when I was first married:

But I alter mine to only include 3 ingredients (the best ones! ) - - 1 package pistachio pudding, 1 can crushed pineapple, and about 8 oz of COOL WHIP Whipped Topping.  Mmmmm.
All you have to do is dump those 3 things in a bowl and stir.  This is a great treat to let the kids make on their own.  Then you refrigerate for several hours - or only 1 hour if you can't wait any longer - then eat and enjoy!!

I think COOL WHIP makes everything just a little better.  This whole treat is made mostly out of COOL WHIP, and that's what makes is so good!!

Are you dessert-everyday type??  We love desserts at our house, so we're always looking for easy, everyday desserts, and COOL WHIP helps make something ordinary more extra-special.  Like take strawberries and add COOL WHIP and all of a sudden they're super fun!  Or have you ever had a cookie dipped in COOL WHIP?  Do you know of anything fun we should try??  Summer is just crying out for desserts!!

I make this every holiday and it's my fave! My mom made it for years. I also add a can of fruit cocktail and always extra mini marshmallows. I love marshmallows!

I think this is the same recipe my grandma made that I lost...thanks for the post!

We like to joke that this is all my sister in law knows how to make. Ever. Ever ever. With lots of marshmallows.

I always wanted to know how to make this stuff! Thanks! And I can't wait to make it tomorrow! My kids will love this!

thanks for the post, i do try for my kids and wife who worked in refrigeration installation business

When I was pregnant with my oldest, I would crave this stuff!! I would make and eat a whole bowl by myself, but I don't think I've had it since! (she's 17 now) Thanks for the reminder! :)

This is my favorite! My grandmother makes it every Christmas into a pretty shaped mold and tops it with maraschino cherries all perfectly placed. Watergate Salad was the name it was originally given, I found old cooking magazines with the recipe in it. So cool! I see your grandmother has it on the recipe card too. Love this stuff!! I honestly don't know why I've never made it myself. It's so easy and I've had the recipe. Maybe I will.

We love this recipe in my family! My mom always makes it for holidays and what not... We just call it the green stuff! haha. Fluff is a funner name!
