this is really good! i just made it today and its delicious. However, I recommend that you make the pudding with the canned juice in a separate bowl. Then in another bowl add all the fruit. I added only a couple of scoops of the pudding to the fruit and stirred it to give it just a little coat of pudding around the fruit and it was perfect. Next time I'll buy a smaller pudding box because I hardly used any, I think it's too much if I were to add the whole thing. Oh and I used green grapes because it looks so much prettier with a pop of green instead of red because you already have strawberries!
Home run! I followed the concept...fruit and read the reviews to determine how to best make the pudding. The result....a home run! I bought a slew of fresh fruit (nectarine, plum, pear, pineapple, apple, raspberry, blueberry, blackberry, tangerine, peach, strawberry)...theme was color. Used instant fat free vanilla pudding....w fat free milk. Lightly coated fruit. note: squeeze 1 tangerine over the cut apples & pears so they don't turn brown. Also, dont apply pudding until the day you eat it.
This fruit salad was soooo yummy; and because of the fruit in this salad it was so quick to prepare too... will definitely be made again!<br/>I was a bit wary of getting "soup" so I used the juice from the peaches and only half the juice from the pineapples and it was just right. I did omit the bananas (allergy) and didnt add the sugar and it was superb.
It's even better using British or Australian custard powder to make a real pudding for it. Bird's custard powder and an Aussie brand are both available at Amazon. Add a dash of vanilla to give it more flavor, and you can make the texture thin or thick as you prefer by altering the amount--thick like a heavy pudding, or slightly thinner and pourable to drizzled over fruit. It only takes a few minutes heating it in a pan on the stove to make it really special.
