Frozen Fruit Salad

July 21, 2008

My secret recipe is no longer a secret recipe…

Ingredients:

  • 1 can/~20 oz. Pie Filling (My favorite is blackberry)
  • 1 can/~20 Crushed Pineapple
  • 1 can/~14 oz. Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 8 oz. whipped cream (or 1 tub whipped topping)
  • optional: mandarin orange slices, nuts, other fruits

Mix together until well blended (but with lots of fruit chunks), pour into freezeable bowl, mold, or pre-baked pie crust.  Freeze for at least 6 hours, and garnish with fruit, chocolate, or jellies. Slice into individual servings.

It’s definitely not the most healthy dish, but it is a refreshing treat we like to enjoy every once in a while.  It works great as a side or dessert.  I usually freeze mine in a Pampered Chef valtrompia bread pan, and garnish it with jelly (squeezed through an icing tube) and berries for a nice presentation. (The picture shows a chocolate garnish and I used 2 different types of pie filling; I also had cranberries in the mix.)  One tube was a wedding gift, and I was delighted to find another tube at a yard sale (50 cents!); it typically makes enough for 2 tubes, and 15-20 servings.  (I don’t usually serve 2 pieces, but all our guests the day I took the picture were hungry male omnivores.).

    Oooh, pretty!

    My grandma used to make us a similar frozen fruit salad with fruit cocktail and serve it sliced into squares, but your shaped tube makes it so much more appealing.

    Thanks for the inspiration!

    You can also serve this “unfrozen” ( that was the “Pink fluff” I served at John and Christy’s wedding shower at my house!) Funny thing is, I had been trying to find that recipe for years ,(not diligently, but here and there) after eating it at a church function. I wanted to serve it at the shower, so resumed my search and finally tracked it down 2 days before the shower–and here Christy”s sister-in-law had been serving it regularly, albeit in different form! I’m also sad because after having the “tube” for years I gave it away because I hadn’t used it once–but I think I see them occassionally in Thrift stores so I will have to pick one up!

    Yay! I have one of those Pampered Chef tube pans in my cabinet! I have never used it … Now I will!

    One question, do you drain the crushed pinapple? I figure you would … but they say no question is to dumb to ask!
