It’s time to inject some life into the cranberries this Thanksgiving! Cranberry fluff is a fun addition to your holiday table. Each fluffy pink bite is filled with lively flavor and vibrant color.
Why KJ Loves
What is cranberry fluff?
Cranberry fluff is a creamy, fluffy version of the classic cranberry jello salad…but with no jello required!
This is an elevated version of the nostalgic cranberry salad recipe. There’s no vanilla pudding, no jello, and no canned pineapple.
The real whipped cream makes the dish rich and creamy, while the cranberry jelly gives the dish tartness and color.
But if you want to go with Cool Whip, we won’t judge. This recipe will still be delicious.
Cranberry Fluff Ingredients
Full-fat cream cheese is a must for this recipe. Don’t forget to lay it out on the counter to bring it to room temperature!
Use the standard log of jellied cranberry sauce. You can even use whole cranberry jelly sauce if you want extra bits of cranberry in the fluff. You’ll find this in the canned section of your grocery store.
Grab an extra 15 oz can if you want to snack on some while you make this dish!

Super fun and super fluffy!
It is the holidays, after all.
