Strawberry-Banana Jello Salad

One of my sons had the scouts banquet and I was asked to provide a jello salad.  I have to admit that I love eating jello salad, but have never bothered to make one because usually at our local church functions someone always brings some, so I never had a need to make one.  Well, this time I had to make one.  Great thing too because this quickly became a family favorite.  It's easy, fluffy, light and oh, so delicious!  I also love the nice touch of the fresh strawberries and bananas.  Delicious!  Enjoy!
-2 cups water
-1 (5.1 oz) package vanilla pudding and pie filling
-2 (3 oz each) packages strawberry gelatin
-16 oz frozen whipped topping, thawed
-5 oz mini marshmallows
-2 cups fresh strawberries, finely chopped
-3 bananas, chopped
Place water in medium pan.  Add the pudding and gelatin.  Give it a good stir and bring to a boil.  Remove from stove and immediately pour mixture into your electric mixer's bowl.  Let it sit on your counter for about 30 minutes to cool a little.  Don't put it in the fridge right off the stove because it will kill your fridge! Once the mixture cooled for 30 minutes, cover it with plastic wrap and place it in the fridge.  Leave it there for about 6 hours.
Beat mixture on high for 3-4 minutes.  It should become nice and fluffy. Fold in remaining ingredients.
Pour into serving bowl and serve immediately.  Enjoy!
