In the Kitchen- Pink Stuff or Pink Fluff

Mom's Holiday Food Recipes: Pink Stuff

I want to share some of my Mom's favorite Holiday recipes over the next few weeks.  I am starting with a dessert staple, we always called it 'the pink stuff' or pink fluff.  If you like whipped cream, cherries, and pineapples, you will love this!  It's sweet, creamy, and a little tart.  It was always, always, always on the menu at Thanksgiving and Christmas, and usually sprinkled in an additional few times a year.  My Mom loved it, I love it, and two of my three girls love it!  Phoebe doesn't like whipped weird.

The ingredients, so simple.  You can also add shredded coconut, chopped pecans, and mini marshmallows, but I think they just get in the way and like to stick to just cherries and pineapples.

This may be the easiest dessert recipe of all time.  You dump all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and fold them together, and you're done!  It will store it in the fridge for up to seven days, that means it's something you can make ahead of time (always a plus).

Pink Fluff Stuff Recipe

16 oz Light Whipped Topping (it's the larger tub)
1 can fat free sweetened condensed milk
1 can cherry pie filling
1 20 oz can crushed pineapple, drained

1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 cup mini marshmallows

Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl, and fold together.  (Folding instead of stirring will keep it fluffier.)  Refrigerate for an hour before serving.

Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas!
