    BlueRose683's Note:

    Lychees can be skipped, use tropical fruit cocktail instead of the regular fruit cocktail, make it four cans. Filipinos use something called Nestles Cream, but it' s not easy to find.

      I'm not a fan of fruit salad at all until I went to the Philippines and ate the fruit salad there. It is to die for. But no one would give me a recipe. This recipe comes really close. I couldn't find buko or any other canned or fresh young coconut, so I used the typical packaged shredded coconut. This recipe has all the right flavors but the texture is a little off. I doubled the amount of the coconut. Still everyone oooohhhed and aaaahhhhed over the flavor. As far as Nestles Cream, I found it and Nestles Sweetened and Condensed Milk in the Hispanic section of the Winco grocery store. I can't wait to make another flan using those ingredients. Even though the recipe still needs a little bit of tweaking. I'll give it 5 stars. I'm thrilled that I have something that comes that close to what I experienced in the PH. Thank you for posting your recipe.

      I skipped the lychees because I don't like them and used wheat nuts instead of chopped almonds because it still turns out cheaper than almonds and my hubby loves them. I would just like to clarify that you use shredded young coconut for the salad. A can of condensed milk (or half a can if you don't like it too sweet) would also be a nice addition. Nestle cream is just all-purpose cream. We only specify it as Nestle cream because for a long time, the only manufacturer/distributor of all-purpose cream was Nestle. In fact, we still only have only about 3 brands available in the market. Any all-purpose cream will do for this recipe. This dish is a staple in Filipino birthday parties, fiestas and of course, the all-important Noche Buena (Christmas Eve meal) and Media Noche (New Year's Eve meal).
