Strawberry Jello Fluff
Serves: 4-6
 
This simple strawberry jello fluff was the surprise hit at our last summer cookout. With only four ingredients and minimal work, this easy peasy recipe will surely become a new summertime favorite!
Ingredients
  • 1 (.3 oz box) sugar free strawberry Jello
  • 2 cups lemon-lime soda, divided (I used Sprite)
  • 4 oz ⅓ less fat cream cheese, room temperature
  • 4 oz. lite cool whip, thawed
Instructions
  1. Heat 1 cup of soda in a microwave safe dish for about 2 minutes or until very warm.
  2. Once heated, add the soda along with the jello mix to a blender and process for a few seconds, until jello mixture has dissolved. **Note: You may want to remove the small top in the middle of the blender lid and place a towel (that you don't mind getting red jello on) over the opening when you first blend it as warm liquids tend to greatly expand when blended.
  3. Add in the cream cheese and blend until combined.
  4. Transfer mixture to a large bowl and stir in the remaining 1 cup of soda (chilled) and then fold in the cool whip.
  5. Pour into a tupperware container and chill for at least 3-4 hours, until firm. Alternatively, you can also pour it into small individual serving containers, like my pictures. *See notes, below.
  6. Serve, topped with additional cool whip if desired.
Notes
If you pour the jello mixture into a container (large or small) and let it sit for the entire 4 hours, it tends to separate into layers, as shown in the photos. The top layer is mostly fluff and the bottom two, more gelatin-like. If you prepare it in one large container, you can stir at the 1-2 hour mark and create a more consistent jello-fluff texture throughout.
