I decided to try a variation of my cherry fluff recipe and since it’s the season for pretty pastels, this light green Lemon Lime Fluff is a great dish to serve. If you like the tartness of lemon lime combination, you’ll enjoy this. It’s a quick and easy dessert idea that only takes a few minutes to put together. It would be a pretty and tasty dessert for any spring time meal.
I have to admit that this was an experimental recipe. I wasn’t at all sure how it would turn out. For my Cherry Fluff, I use a can of cherry pie filling and it adds texture to the dish. I wasn’t convinced that using lemon pie filling would give it a good consistency, but I was pleasantly surprised. I also wasn’t sure about using the jello in powder form instead of adding hot water to it. But, that worked out great, too. The powder was easily absorbed by the filling, milk and pineapples. So, my try it and see Lemon Lime Fluff was a success!
1 3 ounce package lime jello
1 8.25 ounce can crushed pineapple
1 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
1 22 ounce can lemon pie filling
1 8 oz tub of Cool Whip
5 ounces of mini marshmallows (1/2 bag 10.5 oz bag)
Drain the crushed pineapple.
Add the lime jello powder to a large mixing bowl.
Add pineapple and stir
Add condensed milk and stir until the jello powder is incorporated.
Add lemon pie filling. Stir.
Add mini marshmallows. Stir.
Fold in Cool Whip and continue to stir until the mixture is well blended.
Spoon mixture into trifle dish. Cover and chill. This was great after a couple of hours in the fridge, but even better the next day. The marshmallows absorb the flavors overnight and it just melts in your mouth.
Serve in individual dessert dishes. If you want to tone down the tartness a bit, top it with whipped cream. I preferred it with the topping, my husband thought it wasn’t too tart and preferred it without.
I was happy that my try it and see recipe turned out so tasty!
