Light, refreshing, and cold. Sounds perfect for this time of year, right? It is! Like the Strawberry Pretzel Salad, I think of Frozen Fruit Salad as more of a dessert that masquerades as “health food” just because it contains some fruit. Whatever. It’s tasty! (And pretty!)
Frozen Fruit Salad
- 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 2 mashed bananas
- 1 (10 oz.) package frozen strawberries with juice
- 1 small can crushed pineapple OR pineapple tidbits (drained)
- 1/2 c. walnuts (optional)
- 1 large carton whipped topping
Combine cream cheese and sugar. Add bananas, strawberries, pineapple, and walnuts. Mix well. Fold in whipped topping. Spread into a 9×13 dish or a large loaf pan. Freeze for several hours or overnight.
*** I haven’t tried, but I’m betting fresh strawberries would work just fine. Maybe use the pineapple juice instead of the sugary strawberry juice?
*** I’ve used the small carton of whipped topping before. Didn’t hurt a thing. This recipe is very forgiving!
What other fruits would fit in well here? Peaches, maybe?
