This cranberry fluff is a creamy, sweet, tart fluff made of cranberries, whipped cream, cream cheese, marshmallows, and pineapple. Perfect side dish to Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner.

This cranberry fluff is hands down my favorite dish of Thanksgiving dinner. Well, it’s actually a tie with sweet potato casserole. If all I had on Thanksgiving were sweet potatoes and this cranberry fluff, then I would be perfectly happy! I actually make this for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter dinner. I can never get enough of it.

I also love this dish because it’s best if you make it the night before and let it sit in the fridge for at least 8-12 hours. Even longer is fine too. That means one less dish to worry about preparing on Thanksgiving Day. You know, which means more time to watch football….. at least for me. I love football! Or more time to browse the ads to plan out your Black Friday. I have fond memories of doing that with my sisters, mom, and aunts growing up.

Cranberry Fluff

Ingredients

  • 1 12-ounce package fresh cranberries
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 can (8 oz) crushed pineapple, undrained
  • 2 cups mini marshmallows
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream

Instructions

  1. In a food processor or mini food chopper (you can also use a blender or by hand with a knife), pulse until the cranberries are coarsely or finely chopped, depending on your preference.
  2. Add the sugar and pineapple, pulse once or twice, and pour into a bowl. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour to let the flavors blend.
  3. Stir in the marshmallows.
  4. In a medium bowl or bowl of a stand mixer with the whisk attachment, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Pour in the cream and whip until stiff peaks form. Fold the creamy mixture into the salad and stir to combine together.
  5. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or up to overnight. It tastes best if it has at least 8 hours in the fridge before serving.

      Hey Teri! Thanksgiving at your house sounds delicious. And I totally agree that yukon gold potatoes are the best. That’s what I usually always use.
