Pineapple Fluff (+Video)

This Pineapple Fluff recipe is a no-bake dessert recipe with Cool Whip, pineapple, marshmallows, instant pudding, pecans and coconut. Light and refreshing!

A LIGHT AND FRUITY DESSERT

This Pineapple Fluff is a different take on Orange Fluff. There are a lot of ways to change it up. All you have to do is switch out the pudding flavors or canned fruit. The great thing about fluff recipes is they are a nice sweet treat but aren’t heavy so they are perfect summer desserts!

TIPS FOR MAKING PINEAPPLE FLUFF:

  • If you don’t like shredded coconut, just leave it out and use coconut cream pudding instead of vanilla.
  • Or, if you can’t find the coconut cream pudding, just add a teaspoon of coconut extract to the mixture.
  • To make it taste more like a Pina Colada, add a teaspoon of rum extract!

    Oh man. This dessert is just absolutely delicious. I did leave out the pecans. It’s just so light and fluffy. My daughter and I made this together turned out so well. We are adding it to our recipe box of food we make together.

  2. I love the recipe and wonder if it would be ok to mix graham cracker and ritz crumbs with butter and bake a crust, chill it, then spread this fluff atop and chill before serving.

  3. The recipe calls for a 3.4 oz box of pudding HOWEVER, if you read the boxes on the pudding boxes they only come in 3 oz and 4.6 oz. I haven’t made it yet because with other recipes if I use the 3 oz box it comes out runny so now I am thinking of using the bigger box but that might be too much. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thank you

  4. going to try this. sounds great my husband loves the orange stuff fixed this way so he will love this thank you for sharing

    Recipe turned out great, except I wish I would have doubled ingredients. I made it as is to take to a potluck and it didn’t seem like a very big bowl.

    OMG Brandie! This is amazing! I added some mandarin oranges, toasted chopped Walnuts, fruity marshmallows and both of the rum and coconut extracts. I also used vanilla pudding because we don’t care for the coconut. Thanks Brandie for the recipe!

    I toasted coconut & chopped pecans to mix in or place on top before serving or mini chocolate chips or both, yum!
