  • “This site comes well recommended and I needed some easy desserts for in-laws coming this Easter. This strawberry fluff was excellent!! I made it for my husband (to try it before company comes), and he loved it. The strawberry jello really gives it an intense taste, and I love the addition of cottage cheese. One of my in-laws is on The Zone diet, and protein is always appreciated. Thanks Bunnee.”

  • “nice:) tried it outstanding:)”

  • “I gave this 5 stars. I learned how to make this in school in home. ec. class. This copy below is how my gram made it. It is slightly different. The cottage cheese is 2 pounds, 1 large Cool Whip, 1/2 cup walnuts, the jello is orange, and 1 large can crushed pineapple, drained. When I’ve made this I’ve used just Cool Whip, cottage cheese, and jello (any flavor). Thanks for posting a yummy recipe. Christine (internetnut)”

  • “Hi bunnee, what a delightful dish! I can’t believe we made this before and I forgot to review it! We made it with Wild Strawberry Jello, and I had a 12 oz container of whipped topping and used the whole thing, so I added a few more strawberries. The dessert was scrumtious(sp?), you get the idea don’t you? Thank you for posting such a lovely and easy Fluff. Diane”

  • “This was soooo easy and tastes soooo good. Thanx for posting.”

  • “So So Yummy… we made something like this in the deli I used to work in… We would mix crushed pineapple with the cottage cheese.. jelloand cool whip… you can use any flavor jello..we always called it “Fluff”… we sold more black cherry and strawberry than any other flavors.”

  • “Super yummy!!!!!! This was terrific!!!! I didn’t add the nuts. I put halved strawberries on the top instead. This is a nice light dessert and I really like it!! I could eat the whole bowl myself. I never thought to mix jello and cottage cheese. You could probably do this with whatever flavor of jello and whatever fruit you could find. Terrific!!!!”

  • “I don’t know what got this recipe 5 stars but I did not like this at all.I didn’t like the taste or texture.Sorry.”
