Orange Fluff Salad

One of my favorite things about this healthy orange fluff is that it uses greek yogurt as a base. Greek yogurt is creamy but also full of nutrients like protein and calcium.

  • Nonfat Greek Yogurt – Make sure that you pick up plain greek yogurt.

Pro Tips

Making this Orange Fluff is simple but here a few tips to make sure that it turns out perfectly every time that you make it. 

  • Make sure that you beat the greek yogurt well.  This will make for a lighter and creamier texture. 
  • Use sugar-free jello powder to keep the points low. 
  • Drain the mandarin oranges and pineapple before adding them to the mixture. If it’s not drained well then then the juice will cause this weight watchers dessert to be watery. 
  •  Refrigerate the orange fluff before serving to allow everything to set. 
  • I like to use Sugar Free or Fat Free Cool Whip for this creamy recipe. 

FAQs

How to store? 

Store the Orange Fluff in an airtight container and keep in the fridge for up to 3 days. 

Can I make this recipe ahead?

Sure! Just store it in the refrigerator until ready to serve. However, I recommend that you don’t make it more than 24 hours in advance.

    I like this recipe however the jello listed on the ingredient list is incorrect/confusing. A small box of SF jello is 0.44oz so if the recipe really calls for 3oz you’d be adding 6 boxes of jello.

  2. My Greek yogurt just turns to liquid– it never fluffs. I’ve tried putting jello in and letting it cool in fridge. I’ve tried two different Greek yogurts, neither one fluffs.
