Oh buddy! Have I got a recipe to share with you today that is “knock your socks off” good! Lemon Berry Fluff Salad is low-fat & high in protein, with a blend of greek yogurt, berries, jello pudding mix, & whipped topping. It has been raved about at every gathering/party that I have ever taken it to.
Whether you need a salad idea for a family gathering, church function, party, or pot luck, this is the recipe that you have been looking for.
It’s creamy, delicious, packed full of protein, quite versatile, and only takes a few minutes to throw together.
It’s such an easy fluff salad recipe, you can easily make it in five minutes.
Pretty much everything that you could want packed into one simple recipe.
Several years ago, a friend shared their version of a fruit salad with lemon pudding recipe 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…. 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 it’s 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!
I’m going to share with you a quick little video of the process, followed by some still images with directions…then the recipe card will be down at the bottom.
Here are the ingredients all laid out for the fruit fluff salad. Greek Yogurt, Mixed Berries, Lemon Jello Pudding Mix, and Cool Whip/Whipped Topping.
Before we get too far into the process of making my fruit salad with lemon pudding, 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. Mix well.
Then 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?
You may be asking “What is fluff salad?”
Basically, fluff salad refers to any “fluffy” salad that is made with cool whip/whipped topping 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.
This salad 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.*
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, I just wish I were a magazine-level photographer…then this post would do even better!
