Cherry Pie Fluff is a no-bake dessert that is made with cheesecake pudding, cherry pie filling, whipped topping and pineapple a delicious summer treat!


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!

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.

  1. Ingredients listed didn't specify but the Jello picture shows 'Instant'. Glad I noticed. Have to make this soon it looks so yummy.

  2. 5 stars
    Made this and it was a hit with the kids. Swapped out the cheesecake (could not find this) pudding for lemon pudding. We are trying it with peach pie filling & vanilla pudding next. Thank you for this recipe!

  3. Love this recipe, I agree when it is so hot it's nice to have a great cool recipe to fix!! Gives me more time to read, just finished Susan Mallery's "Two of a Kind". Keep up the crock pot recipes. Love your blog it's the best!

  4. 5 stars

    love your site,all your recipes look great and easy to make. thanks girl,keep them coming……darlene

  6. Oh My – I don't like Pineapple. Would that ruin the entire recipe as you lose the liquid? (I love Cherries, pudding & Cool Whip)

    Thanks much –

    1. Hi Janice, you really need that liquid in this to make it work. You could use just the pineapple juice in this and leave out the pineapple itself. I like that the pineapple juice keeps this recipe from being overly sweet. You don't really taste the pineapple flavor at all but it helps the overall sweetness. Some people like to add sweetened condensed milk to this recipe, but personally I just find that far too sweet a mixture. I hope that helps!

    I love your recipes. You have the best recipes I have ever seen, especailly the poke cakes. I think I have made every one of them and they have all come out perfect. Now I'm going to make this delicious dessert for the 4th of July. Can't wait.

    This is similar to what we call Cherries in the Snow. The only thing different would be no pudding mix but instead use a can of eagle brand milk. Soooo good, but I'm sure your recipe is equally as good! Thanks for sharing!

  9. could this maybe be a dip? Maybe put it in the middle with some plain type cookies all around it? What do you think?

  10. I have crushed Dole crushed pineapple, but it's a 20 ounce can. Can I use all of this or do I have to take part of it out?

    1. Hi Bev! I've only ever made this with the smaller can. You could use the larger can, it might just turn out a bit softer. Or perhaps just use maybe about 2/3rds of it. You need some of the juice and fruit so the Jell-O pudding has something to dissolve into.

    Well lookie here – you did good Honey Chile! A fabulous dish to add pineapple too. Thanks much for sharing the link back. YUUUUUMMM!!!

    I live in Arizona and as I type we are in a Southwest heatwave. Wearing sleeveless top, capris and flip flops and sweating unabashedly. For the life of me I cannot imagine living here in this heat without air conditioning. How could they cook in this type of heat? Makes me hotter than I am to think about it.

    Thanks for the cool recipe, will make it. Keep crockpot recipes coming.

  13. Hi I'm from Canada and we don't have cheesecake pudding mix up here so could I use Vanilla pudding mix in its place? Would love to make this for my family this weekend coming is our Canada day weekend…actually its on Monday July 1st. Thanks and have a great day!!! Love all your recipes that you post,I pass them along!!!

    1. Hi! What part of Canada are you in? I have a couple of friends in Ontario and Quebec that are able to get it at Wal-Mart. You could certainly use Vanilla. You just have to be careful about this dish becoming too sweet. If it does turn out too sweet for you, you can always add a touch of lemon juice to balance it out. 🙂

    1. Faith, you sure can. I think the Strawberry Filling is probably the sweetest of all the fillings. So make sure you keep the crushed pineapple and juices in there because it helps keep this dish from being uber-sweet. If you switch out fillings and still find it too sweet, then just add a bit of lemon juice to help balance it out.

    2. I was going to ask the same thing. I hate cherries so I would have to use something different. Maybe peach or apple…yum lol. I wonder if the pineapple could stand alone…I adore pineapple!!!

      1. Use pistachio pudding instead of cherry pie filling and cheesecake pudding. You can add chopped nuts and/or chopped cherries. I have used many different puddings and fruit.

  14. Can't wait to try this, I used to make something similar with sweetened condensed milk in it. But needed something that was more diabetic friendly. Planning on making this using sugar-free products. Thanks for all your recipes. Love the POKE Cakes.

    1. I've also made it with condensed milk and know it by the name of pink panther poop instead of cherry pie fluff lol.

      Its soo good!!
