I lightened this dish up by replacing the sugar with a can of crushed pineapple which will help sweeten the cranberries up and using Cool Whip instead of heavy cream. The Instant vanilla pudding gives it even more flavor.

What Ingredients do I need?

Cranberry Fluff Salad Weight Watchers - Recipe Diaries (2)
  • Cool Whip - A frozen whipped topping that is found in the freezer section of the grocery store. I like it a lot because I’m lazy and don’t like beating heavy cream to making whipped cream. 😉
  • Instant Vanilla Pudding - This is such a versatile ingredient to use in many desserts, I love them cause there’s so many flavors. Just add in milk to the pudding. There are different sizes of pudding mix. The regular pudding mix are 3.4 oz and the sugar-free are 1oz. Both require the same amount of milk used.
  • Raw Cranberries - Use a food processor to finely chop them
  • Crushed Pineapple - drained
  • Marshmallows - pre-cooked, and chopped.

How do you figure out points for recipes?

Nutrition info is calculated with the zero point food included in the recipe. If you’re using the nutrition info to figure out points it might not be the same as what the points are listed in the notes section. I use the recipe builder to calculate points. Myfitness pal for nutrition info.

Why am I still getting different points from what you have listed?

This could be quite a number of reasons and here are a few that I have come across.

    That's fine as well. The sugar-free ones are 1 oz boxes I believe.

  2. Chloe Hoffman says

    I love this recipe! I cannot find 1oz box of vanilla pudding so I use one 3.4oz of vanilla pudding per batch. I also use coco whip to make this recipe diary free. And I use mandarin oranges too instead of pineapple

  3. Jenna says

    You don't need any sugar. I updated the post so it wasn't confusing.

  4. Hannah says

    How much sugar should you add? Didn't see it listed in your recipe.
