This classic Orange Fluff Jello Salad is delicious as a side or as a dessert.

With a mixture of pudding, jello, marshmallows and cool whip, it’s light, creamy, and fluffy all at the same time.

We add in mandarin oranges and bananas for a fruitier flavor and whether you’re taking it to a party, feeding a crowd, or looking for an easy side dish – it feeds a BIG group.

Why is this salad called “fluff”?

With the cool whip and marshmallows, this salad is perfectly light and fluffy – hence the name “fluff.”

With the creamed pudding and jello mixture added in, it makes the texture even fluffier.

  • water
  • Cool Whip

How far in advance can I make this recipe?

We would not recommend making this further in advance than the morning you’re planning on eating it. The mandarin oranges tend to release moisture the longer they are in the salad, so it starts getting runny after too long.

If you want to make it the day before, we would recommend just doing the first step of the recipe (mixing together the jello mix, pudding mix, and water and letting it set up in the fridge).

Do I prepare the jello or pudding mixture before adding them to the recipe?

No. The recipe requires just the mix (the powder packet) of both the Jello and the pudding. Do not prepare the jello or pudding as listed on their boxes.

Prep Time 10 mins

Cook Time 5 mins

Chill Time 5 hrs

Total Time 5 hrs 15 mins

Ingredients

  • 4.6 ounces Cook n Serve vanilla pudding mix (1 large box – not instant pudding)
  • 6 ounces orange Jell-o (1 large box)
  • 3 cups water
  • 16 ounces Cool Whip (thawed)
  • 5 ounces mini marshmallows (about half the bag)
  • 22 ounces canned mandarin oranges (2 small cans; drained)
  • 3 bananas (sliced; add right before serving so they don’t turn brown in the fridge)

Notes

  • We would not recommend making this further in advance than the morning you’re planning on eating it. The mandarin oranges tend to release moisture the longer they are in the salad, so it starts getting runny after too long.
  • If you want to make it the day before, we would recommend just doing the first step of the recipe (mixing together the jello mix, pudding mix, and water and letting it set up in the fridge), then add in the Cool Whip and fruit on the day that you plan on eating it.
  • We recommend only using Cook and Serve pudding with this recipe. It doesn’t set up as well, stay together as long, or have quite as creamy of a texture if you use instant pudding.
  • Sometimes I also add a can of drained pineapple tidbits to this recipe – it’s a delicious addition!
