Cherry Pineapple Fluff with Coconut Recipe
If you’re looking for an easy and yummy dessert than look no further than this Cherry Pineapple Fluff with Coconut. It’s so delicious, my only regret is that I did not try this sooner! I’m not a big marshmallow fan (I know) so that’s what deterred me from making this Cherry Pineapple Fluff but oh boy I’m so glad I’ve made it now and it did not last long with my family. It’s a great summer dessert but I’d eat this yumminess any time!
No-Bake Desserts are Awesome
We love that this cherry pineapple fluff is also a no-bake dessert. It’s just so darn easy to put together and no oven required which is a bonus especially in the hot summer months which is what I’m experiencing right now as I write this recipe. In fact the Pacific Northwest just experienced this week extraordinarily high temperatures, beating out Houston and other areas for high temps from Vancouver, BC to Seattle WA.
So we’re all about NOT turning on the oven and still enjoying some tasty and refreshing treats like this cherry pineapple fluff. It’s a bit addicting and this is coming from someone who doesn’t love marshmallows too!
Of course because I love coconut as well I just had to add coconut to this cherry pineapple fluff, it’s like a tropical treat. I can almost imagine being on the beach looking at the clear blue ocean water, almost but hey at least I get eat a yummy dessert right?

Can you make Cherry Pineapple Fluff with Coconut in Advance?
Yes you can but I recommend making this cherry pineapple fluff just a day in advance at most as it seems to be best when it’s first made probably due to the dairy in it. Keep it refrigerated until ready to serve.
Can you freeze Cherry Pineapple fluff?
I would say a big nope on that one as like a lot of dairy based recipes I wouldn’t think it would defrost well. Although I would be tempted to try it as a frozen dessert. Hmm I’m going to have to give that a try and update this post when I do to see how it does as a frozen dessert. For now no freezing this dessert, eat it up in a few days and enjoy!

So was I right, is that not a super easy dessert to make and not once do you need to turn on the oven? Got to love easy but tasty desserts like this cherry pineapple fluff with coconut right? Or am I just too obsessed with desserts? Maybe I am but I’m not wrong on this lol
Just look at all that tropical goodness with the pineapples, cherry and coconut oh my! So so yummy and I can’t wait to make it again when I have a fresh pineapple I can cut up. I could have bought one for this round but they were still kind of expensive so canned sliced pineapple for the win and to make it even quicker to make this cherry pineapple fluff.
