Best Ever Cherry Fluff

About this Recipe

Cherry fluff is an extremely popular desserts on the internet. Before Grandmother's Kitchen came into existence, I will be honest to say that I had never eaten a fluff dessert recipe before! Our family is much more of the chocolate dessert type and so anything that did not have a rich helping of chocolate with it sort of got bypassed by my eyes at least. Fluff desserts were never appealing before because of their ingredient list which always called for Cool Whip and marshmallows, neither of which are on my top dessert ingredient lists. Then one day we decided to have a go at the fluff desserts, and to our great surprise by using ingredients that we enjoy like Homemade Whipped Cream Recipe instead of Cool Whip, this dessert recipe has quickly become one of our favorite treats. You can even add a little chocolate drizzle if you are chocolate fanatics like us.

Making whipped cream desserts is so much fun, but it’s always important to use fresh ingredients when you’re making any recipe. That includes checking the Best Before dates and throwing away any food that may have mold growing on it. While there are times that you can simply cut the mold off of the food like cheese specifically, there are other things that you just shouldn’t risk having any mold on. Eating mold on your food can cause you to feel sick if you have a sensitive stomach or decreased immunity. It’s always best to eat or use any food well before the best before date, so try and use or eat any food you buy at least 3 to 5 days after you buy it.

This dessert recipe is as pretty as it is delicious. Plus, it's incredibly easy to make which is always a bonus. It will take only a few minutes to put all of the ingredients together. You can eat it right away too if you want, but letting it refrigerator for an hour will make it cool, and it allow the ingredients flavors to come together.

For the whipped cream, you can use any type you like, or you can try out our homemade whipped cream or our vegan, dairy-free version of whipped cream made with coconut cream. Making your own fresh whipped cream from scratch is also great because you can adjust the flavors as you like adding more sweetener or less depending on how you like it.

You will also use a can of cherry pie filling and some pineapple too which tastes amazing together. The cherry mixture also dyes the whipped cream and marshmallows a lovely deep pink or light red color making it perfect for holiday gatherings like Valentine's Day, Christmas or even Easter. But we say make this easy and delicious dessert anytime your heart desires because it's sure to put a big smile on your face and the faces of your family and friends who eat it.

There's just something so satisfying about the whipped cream, marshmallows and fruit in combination with each other. So enjoy each and every bite of this treat, tasting each of the incredible flavors that are in the recipe. This would also be an enjoyable no bake treat to make with kids to teach them about mindful baking.

Adding each of the ingredients in one step at a time taking notice of the colors and textures, talking about how it's going to turn out and enjoying each other's company in the process. It's even great to do this as you're making treats or recipes on your own as a way to really connect with your food and enjoy it to the fullest.
