The Pink Stuff

I’m sure everyone has their own version of this recipe. My sister’s recipe calls for her to actually make the jello. My recipe calls for me to just pour the jello mix into the bowl.

This is a very simple recipe, only 5 ingredients. And this is so addictive. A bowl of this “stuff” doesn’t last very long around our house.

There was a time when I wouldn’t touch this “stuff”. I didn’t like Pineapple… uh, don’t like Pineapple. But as it turns out, I can’t even taste the Pineapple. I love this Pink Stuff.

I got this recipe from Mom, though I altered it a teeny little bit. Her recipe calls for a small can of the Mandarin Oranges. Since I really like Mandarin Oranges, I decided to increase the recipe to a large 29oz can.

one 8oz tub of Cool Whip, thawed
one 16oz tub of small curd cottage cheese
one 29oz can of Mandarin Oranges, cut into small pieces and drained
one 8oz can crushed pineapple, drained
a half packet of Raspberry Jello gelatin mix


I pour all of the ingredients into a bowl and mix well. If you like your Pink Stuff really sweet, pour in a little more of the Raspberry Jello mix.
