Looking for a refreshing fruit salad? My mom had this at a party - she described what she thought was in it and we both have tried our own. This is my version. My mom used -Instant Vanilla Pudding - mine had a different taste using the French Vanilla (maybe sweeter) - but they were both very good! My serving size may be off - it's hard to calculate. It makes a nice bowl of fruit salad. I made this for 8 of us and I had some leftover. It was very good tho - it kept for several days and the fruit never changed colors.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. This is the EASY part – In a large bowl; mix peaches with syrup, fruit cocktail with syrup, mandarin oranges-drained, pineapple w/syrup, cherries-drained, bananas, apples and pudding mixes (do not make the pudding – just use the powder).
  2. Mix well – chill then serve.
  3. Please note chill time is cook time.

This was just ok....did not come out the way I thought it would. I actually thought it was going to make like a "thick" and creamy fruit salad...did not realize it was just to sweeten the already sweetened fruit.
