Creamsicle Fluff



It's all about the fluff!! Creamsicle Fluff that is!  It is just something about these desserts that make them so fun to make and eat. 




I just love making these desserts anytime we go to a potluck or picnic because they are just so dang easy to whip up. My Mom had been telling me for quite a while that she wanted to try one of these orange salads so I knew it was time to give it a whirl. The only thing different with this recipe is that you have to boil the water and add it to the jello and then it needs to chill a bit. So even though it is quick to whip up, you still need a little extra time for the cooling process. 




But seriously, this Creamsicle Fluff salad is so worth that little extra step. The day I made this, I took a good helping to my parents to try. I received a phone call a little while later telling me just how much they enjoyed it. My Mom has asked me several times since then when I was going to make it again. My husband also keeps asking when I will be making that "orange stuff" again. I have a feeling this Creamsicle Fluff will be made a lot this summer. And I am totally ok with that. Besides anything that has marshmallows in it is just plain fun to eat!

  3. This sounds so similar to a salad my mom used to make, and I was asking her for the recipe just a couple weeks ago. She had no idea what I was talking about, and had no recipe that matched my memory! Perfect timing... Thank You! Making this over the weekend :)

    1. Perfect timing is right!! This one is super popular with the family and would be perfect for the holiday weekend. I sure hope this is exactly what you remember from your mom. I do that too, ask my mom about recipes and she has no idea what I am talking about. LOL!! You will have to let me know how it turns out for you.

  7. Just wondering if the Creamsicle Fluff recipe can be considered low carb if used with sugar free jello and pudding?

  10. This is very similar to my family's recipe Cherry Fluff with Cherry Pie Filling, Crushed Pineapple, Eagle Brand Condensed Milk, Cool Whip and either Pecans or Walnuts (I use Chopped Almonds because of my child's food allergy)...

  12. I use fat free ingredients and leave out the marshmallows and it's a 2 point weight watchers desert. You won't notice the difference, it's delicious either way.
