Seriously guys I could just face plant into this recipe. It’s a bowl full of fluffy creamy pudding filled with Oreos…there isn’t much better than that. I mean, don’t we all need an excuse to eat more Oreos and add more sugar to Oreos?

I love calling this a salad recipe because people lose their minds on Facebook whenever I post dessert salads. I get Basic Becky and Negative Nancy screaming at me every. single. time.

“That’s not a salad, that’s DESSERT.”

“That looks like diabetes!”


The best commenters comment in all caps with no punctuation. I love them; they give me life. Occasionally the troll comments will get to me but most of the time I just laugh and say bring it on; more comments = more engagement = more eyes on my post.

Back in the day, this was called a dessert salad and I’m sticking to my guns on that one. There may be no fruit in this ambrosia but that’s okay; I won’t eat fluff with fruit but I will inhale fluff with Oreos.

Easy Oreo Fluff Salad is a simple dessert salad with Oreos, pudding and Cool Whip. It’s the perfect summer or holiday side dish!

There are so many Oreo fluff salad recipes out there but you should make this one because its ah-mazing. It was so good I even made Oreo Fluff Pie out of it! As a matter of fact, did you know that any leftover dessert salad can be turned into pie? (Pssst…I’ve done it with Watergate salad too!)

So, what is fluff salad anyway?

Fluff salad is an outrageous dessert that combines a few staples and makes the perfect side dish or potluck recipe. I really want to hug whoever came up with it; fluff is such a versatile recipe and can be made in so many ways. Fluff has a few basic ingredients:

  • Pudding
  • Whipped topping
  • Marshmallows

Outside of those three, the sky is the limit. Watergate salad has pineapple and banana pudding fluff uses chunks of banana and apple salad has, you guessed it, apples.. I think traditional fluff salad has maraschino cherries and mandarin oranges in it, but all of them usually have those three basic ingredients.

Other than those, the ingredients in fluff salad depend on the flavor of the fluff. This Oreo Fluff Salad also has Oreos and you make the pudding with milk before mixing it all together.

Easy Oreo Fluff can be made into a Weight Watchers recipe!

If you google Oreo Fluff, you’ll see that weight watchers Oreo fluff is a huge thing. I guess it’s one of those things that’s easy to convert into a low-sugar or sugar-free recipe.

As it’s written, this recipe is most definitely NOT WW friendly, but I did include directions on how to make it healthier Oreo fluff in the notes of the recipe. Or you can make my Skinny Oreo Fluff which is WW friendly.

Basically, to turn this recipe into a healthier or skinnier version, you just need to substitute the sugar-free versions of some of the ingredients. Jell-O makes sugar-free pudding mix, Cool Whip comes sugar-free and so do Oreos!

However you make it just make it when you have company or it’ll be trouble. You’ve been warned!

    1. You can try whipped cream (about 3 cups) but it won’t keep as long and will get watery after a few hours, most likely.

  1. Have you ever had Snickers Salad? Cool Whip, sometimes the pudding mix, chopped up Snickers bars, and Granny Smith apple slices. No marshmallows, and it has to be Granny Smith apples. So weirdly yummy! I think maybe this is an Iowa thing — I never heard of it growing up in Illinois or all the years I lived in Texas but it shows up at most of the potlucks I go to here in eastern Iowa.

  2. I only made it a 4 star because I hate marshmallows, but probably the rest of the world loves them. And Yes, I hate S’Mores too. But I do love dessert salads and have made them my very long life. Keep them coming. Oh, and I hate KALE too.
