Recipe #84: Strawberry Fluff..You Could Eat the Whole Bowl in One Sitting...Really!

I just made this recipe the other day, and do you know how long it's been since I made it last?  Forty years ago...yes, 40!  What really surprised me was that I remembered this recipe, and when I tasted it again after all these years, I was in heaven.  I usually don't go out for stuff like this, but it reminds me of a whippy cotton candy.  It's all made in one bowl, so it's super easy, and goes down easier...really.  Great for a barbecue, luncheon, or as for me, I was eating another helping around midnight the day I made it.  It does only keep for one day, two at the most, but, you will be hard pressed to have any left. 

1 8 oz container of Cool Whip                                 1 small pkg strawberry jello (I actually bought
2 medium bananas, cut lengthwise                              Crush instead of Jello as it actually had
    once, then each half again, then sliced                     some natural strawberry flavor in it)
1 cup diced pineapple (if you're using                   1 cup walnuts, roughly chopped
    canned, drain it well)                                            1 cup fresh strawberries, chopped

Mix the package of jello in a small bowl with 1/4 cup boiling water.  Stir until dissolved.  Put Cool Whip in a large bowl and add strawberry water.  Mix with a large spoon.  Try not to eat this just the way it is.  Add the rest of the ingredients, cover and chill for several hours.  Bon appetit!
