With the Fourth of July right around the corner, BBQ season is in full swing. Hotdogs, buns, and watermelons are all on special + hopefully aren’t leaving the shelves before you have a chance to grab one. If you aren’t hosting a BBQ yourself, you’re likely going to attend one in the near future if you haven’t already. Even if the hosts say they’ll provide it all, we all know a good guest still brings *something* to the party. My favorite dish to bring is a Pineapple Fluff.
Pineapple Fluff is true to its name. It is light + fluffy with the acid + sweetness that comes with pineapple. It is super easy to make + only requires a few ingredients. It’s the perfect dish to throw together if you forgot to make something (uh oh) or get invited to something at the last minute. In just 5 minutes you go from guest zero to guest hero!
Making my mom’s pineapple fluff only requires four ingredients (5 if you want to make it a little boozy – see the recipe notes). There is essentially no prep to this + you just have to let it cool in the fridge. The trickiest part of this recipe? Choosing which dish to serve it in.
You can use fresh pineapple, though I have found it is easiest to make with canned crushed pineapple. If you choose to make your Pineapple Fluff that way, you just need a 20z can, strained well.
Sweet + fluffy treat perfect for any BBQ or picnic. Your friends will love this Pineapple Fluff as a dessert.
- 16 oz Vanilla Yogurt
- 8 oz Cool Whip
- 3.4 oz Vanilla Instant Pudding Mix
- 2 cups Crushed Pineapples
Strain the juice out of the pineapples + crush if fresh.
Mix the yogurt + pineapples together in a bowl.
Add the pudding mix + stir until there are no lumps.
Mix in 3/4 of the cool whip into the bowl.
Place in serving bowl + add remaining cool whip to the top.
Cover + cool in fridge until ready to serve.
For a little more adult fun, soak the pineapples in flavored vodka for at least an hour before staining + mixing in with other ingredients.
This Pineapple Fluff is PERFECT for your next summer event. You may even be able to convince your most health-conscious friends to give it a try.
