A DELICIOUSLY LIGHT DESSERT
We are in the heat of summer now! Walking outside is liking walking into a sauna. Well, at least it is here in my part of the world. Thank goodness we are blessed with air conditioning. Makes you wonder how those fancy ladies back in the 19th century handled summer with all those layers of petticoats and dresses they wore. They certainly didn’t have this scrumptious cherry pie fluff to cool them off!
CAN I USE SUGAR-FREE OPTIONS FOR CHERRY PIE FLUFF?
Absolutely! If you need to watch your sugar intake, it is easy to substitute these ingredients for their sugar-free counterparts. You can also switch up the flavors. Blueberry or strawberry pie filling will both work wonderfully in this recipe.
INGREDIENTS NEEDED: (FULL RECIPE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE POST)
- crushed pineapple
- cheesecake Jell-O pudding
- cherry pie filling
- whipped topping (Cool Whip)
HOW TO MAKE CHERRY PIE FLUFF:
In a medium bowl, combine undrained pineapple with dry cheesecake pudding mix.
Stir well until combined.
Stir in can of cherry pie filling.
Small hands do well with this job.
Looks good already, huh? But there’s one more step!
Gently stir in whipped topping.
If you like, you can always add in a few chopped walnuts or pecans.
This can be eaten immediately but any leftovers must be kept refrigerated.

Could I use cream cheese as well in the recipe?
Can you use vanilla instant pudding with this recipe instead of cheesecake pudding ?
Hi Dunn – yes you sure could!
How about putting it in a graham cracker crust and making it Cherry Fluff Pie?
I'll bet this tastes good frozen too!
I'm always looking for low carb or sugar free recipes for my hubby's type 2 diabetes. I used sugar free cheesecake pudding mix, no sugar added cherry pie filling, lite whipped topping, and no sugar added canned peaches cut into small pieces plus a few chopped walnuts. It worked! He is a happy camper. P.S. pineapple is one of the highest carbohydrate fruits so I generally avoid it.
I bet if you froze this and then cut it into squares it would be great too.
So delicious. I’m definitely going to try it with strawberry!
I have an egg allergy, so therefore what i can eat is limited. Know of any egg free recipes? Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for another recipe that I must try. Pinned it! You Rock!
Will the filling hold up if I were to put in graham cracker crust?
I have made this with cherries in a jar drained and fruit cocktail drained, with nuts and coolwhip. Instead of pie filling and pudding.
So easy and pretty! Love it when it is super cold!
