Pistachio Fruit Salad

Talk about "perfect couples"! The fresh strawberries and pistachio pudding are just made for each other.
Serves 6 (2/3 cup)

1 (4-serving) package JELL-O sugar-free instant pistachio pudding mix
2/3 cup Carnation Nonfat Dry Milk Powder
1 cup (one 8-ounce can) crushed pineapple, packed in fruit juice, drained and liquid reserved*
1/2 cup Cool Whip Lite
1 cup (1 medium) diced banana
2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
1/2 cup (1 ounce) marshmallows

In a large bowl, combine dry pudding mix and dry milk powder. Add enough water to reserved pineapple juice to make 1 1/4 cups liquid. Add liquid to dry pudding mixture. Mix well using a wire whisk. Blend in Cool Whip Lite. Add pineapple, banana, strawberries, and marshmallows. Mix gently to combine. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes. Gently stir again just before serving.
