Loved it!!! I made this for my mom but ended up eating quite a bit myself. I did not use the fruit cocktail instead I chopped one apple, one pear, and halved red seedless grapes. I will not wait for Thanksgiving to make this again!
This was loved by all! We didn't have chunk pineapple so I used well drained crushed and it worked just fine. A fun recipe that kids can essentially cook on their own, yet in a pretty bowl looks very impressive.
Healthy and delicious.
This is a really delicious way to eat fruit! It's SOOOO easy to make, too. You could probably use a bit less milk if you want this to be less liquidy, I think I'll try that next time. It's great how it is though. I use sugar free instant vanilla pudding, and fat free cool whip (the store brand works just as well), and you can add whatever kind and however much canned fruit you want. I used a can of tropical fruit salad (I cut up the pieces, they were bigger than what I wanted), a can of regular fruit cocktail, and about half a can of pineapple, and half a can of mandarin oranges. It's really great because you can adjust it to your family's tastes. Just grab whatever cans of fruit look good to you at the store, and use that!
This was a very good and easy fruit salad. I put grapes and bananas in part of it so I could serve it another day without brown bananas in it. I topped it with extra Cool Whip and a cherry. Thanks Karen Brutger. Bullwinkle.
