This fluffy salad has been raved about at every gathering/party that I have ever taken it to, so be prepared to share this recipe post if you take this yummy dessert anywhere.
If you are in need of a salad idea for a family gathering, church function, party, or pot luck, this recipe will for sure be your new go-to.
It’s creamy, delicious, packed full of protein, quite versatile, and only takes a few minutes to throw together. It’s a total win in my book!
This fruit fluff salad recipe is so easy, you can make it in five minutes. Crazy right?!
I think it is pretty much everything that you could ever want packed into one simple recipe.
A good fifteen plus years ago, a friend shared their version of a lemon fluff salad with me. It was really good, but as always, I just had change a few things up a bit to make it exactly the way that I wanted it (I needed to lighten it up a bit and increase the protein content too which is something I worry about after having lost and maintained over 100 lbs of weight loss)…. and my changes paid off, this is one of my top five most popular recipes on my entire website.
The true test to see if this lemon berry dessert is as good as I say that it is, is for you to make it yourself and give it a taste.
Though I assure you that you will want more than one serving, and possibly even more than two 😉 I dare you to not lick the bowl clean of this lemon fluff dessert!
I’m going to share with you a quick little video of the process, followed by some still images with directions…then the free printable recipe card will be down at the bottom.
Here are the ingredients all laid out for the fruit fluff salad. Nonfat Plain Greek Yogurt, Mixed Berries, Instant Lemon Jello Pudding Mix, and Cool Whip/Whipped Topping.
Before we get too far into the process of making this delicious fruit salad with yogurt and cool whip, I wanted to share with you a link to my entire Salads & Dressings Section.
In a large mixing bowl, I use this one which is a four quart bowl, add your whipped topping and greek yogurt. Make sure to mix them well.
Then I add the Instant Lemon Jello Pudding Mix.
Next we add our frozen mixed berries… you could use fresh, frozen is just a much more practical and year-round option for many of us.
Mix well and you’re done! Can you believe this 5 minute fluff salad is THAT easy?
“What is fluff salad?”
Basically, fluff salad refers to any “fluffy” salad that is made with a cool whip/whipped topping/whipped cream as a main ingredient… that’s the simple answer. There, of course, are many variations of fluff salads, but my favorite ones always tend to have berries in them, which is why I created this recipe.
Keep in mind that the more you mix it, the more purple it’s going to look.
- 32 Oz. Plain Greek Yogurt (low or fat-free)
- 16 Oz. Whipped Topping/Cool Whip
- 1 & 1/2 (3.4 oz) Packages Lemon INSTANT Pudding Mix (dry)
- 2 LBS Frozen Mixed Berries
- In a four quart (or larger) mixing bowl, add the Greek Yogurt and Whipped Topping, mix well.
- Add the Instant Lemon Pudding Mix (dry). Mix well.
- Add the frozen berries. Mix well.
- Cover and chill until ready to serve. Mix once prior to serving.
How to make this lemon fluff dessert recipe:
This fruit salad with lemon pudding and cool whip tastes best when it was prepared at least an hour prior to serving.
*Remember that each time you mix it, it will get darker in color and that's totally normal as the berries melt.*
This recipe tastes best when eaten within two or three days of preparation. It will get a little runnier each day as the berries melt and the Cool Whip gets less frothy over time.

I forgot to tell you guys that when I brought this to a party a while back, someone told me that it looked & tasted like something that would be in a magazine.
That was sure sweet of them, and maybe that’s a little out of my reach…but we can share it and get the circulation magazine level ;)…hint hint.
