With Summer around the corner, we’ll all be looking for simple cold desserts, and this one is so easy to make – Kind of like what grandma used to make. That’s what I remember of my Grandma Alice; She always made orange fluff for dessert at many family gatherings.
It’s pretty easy to make, just a one-bowl mess, and adding ingredients one at a time.
Just remember to drain your fruit juice out of the canned jars, and simply fold in the rest of the ingredients.
I love the taste of Greek Yogurt, but you can substitute for vanilla or plain yogurt, and the recipe will work the same. It’s just that Greek Yogurt has a bit more protein, and is suppose to be a little healthier.
If you want to reduce calories feel free to use a “light” cool whip for your whipped topping,
Jello Yogurt Fluff using Greek Yogurt Substitute
Which yogurt can I use?
If you’re looking for the perfect yogurt, then I’ve got just what your taste buds are seeking.
Greek or normal? That’s not important! What matters is that we use high-quality ingredients and try our best to deliver an authentic experience in each dish with no added sugar – but if it doesn’t say otherwise on its packaging then assume there will be some sweetener included (sugar)
if you are dairy sensitive – you can always substitute for a dairy-free yogurt if needed.
Can you use Any Fat-Free Yogurt? Or does it need to be Full Fat Greek Yogurt?
The Answer is Yes, we only used Greek Yogurt in the Jello Fluff Recipe because we wanted to add more protein into our dessert
Can I Use Sugar-Free Jello?
I guess you can, try it and find out! This particular recipe has yogurt in it instead of Jello, but I have made Fluff using regular Jello before, but just not sugar-free, as it is not widely available in my area. in our Fluff recipe, our flavouring comes from fruit, and not yogurt, but I’m sure if you use Jello, depending on the flavouring, your results won’t be the same as mine, but go ahead and experiment with a jello mixture.
Our Orange Pineapple Fluff Recipe
Now that we have covered all the Yogurt Questions, let us move on to the variety of Flavours.
We used Greek Yogurt Vs Jello
Our Flavouring didn’t come from Jello, we used fruit as our flavours. It’s way healthier than trying to get your flavouring from lime jello as an example or other jello mix
In our particular recipe – we used Canned fruits, which are conveniently found in any local Canadian store all year round.
We Chose to be different by adding canned oranges and Pineapples – but if those flavours don’t appeal to you:
- try lime jello, or different jello powder you find in the store that appeals to you such as Strawberry jello
- try fresh raspberries or fresh strawberries in the recipe in the summer
Our Fluff Dessert Recipe uses the following Ingredients
- 3 cups Greek yogurt
- 8-ounces whipped topping
- 1 can mandarin oranges in fruit juice, drained
- 1 can crushed pineapple in juice, drained of excess juice
- 2 cups mini marshmallows
I’m sure the mini marshmallows aren’t on the weight watchers list as a healthy dessert cuisine, but I’m sorry this is what makes it a great dessert, and really should not be deleted as one of my recipe notes. for this easy dessert, it’s what gives it the texture for the fluff.
Our Fluff Recipe Directions:
Because we are using Greek Yogurt instead of a jello mix, we don’t need the prep time and a cup of boiling water and use a hand mixture, so our directions are very simple because we don’t have the jello issues such as ice cubes, and reading the instructions pour using an electric mixture.
We simply need to fold our ingredients in a medium bowl and store the mixture evenly.
Well, Except you should beat the Greek yogurt with a hand mixer just so it becomes fluffy. This will take only take 5-10 minutes of your time.
