Orange Fluff comes together in a matter of minutes to create a dreamy dessert that is perfect for just about any occasion.
Fluff desserts are definitely one of those sneaky mom desserts that pack in a little extra nutrition without you ever being the wiser. My mom’s recipe always included cottage cheese, meaning our sweet treats were actually packed full of protein.
2 3-ounce boxes orange Jell-o mix
16 ounces frozen whipped topping, thawed (I used Truwhip)
2 11-ounce cans mandarin oranges, roughly chopped, optional
- Step 1
Puree cottage cheese in a food processor until smooth.
- Step 2
Transfer the pureed cottage cheese to a large bowl and whisk in the dry Jell-o mix until thoroughly incorporated.
- Step 3
Use a rubber spatula to fold in the whipped topping until no streaks remain.
- Step 4
Fold in mandarin oranges.
- Step 5
Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
- Step 6
If desired, serve topped with a dollop of whipped cream or whipped topping and fresh orange slices. For a little added flavor and texture, you can also fold in 2 cups of miniature marshmallows.
