    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).

    I've made this before without the cream cheese and only fruit cocktail. But with the cheese, my friends asked me what i added aside from the cream. I used more apples coz it added a little twist rather than using fruit cocktail all the time to this type of recipe and skipped the coconut.
