Creamy Fruit Salad

In our family’s tradition, we always make fruit salad to enjoy for New Year’s Eve. Fruit salad is a very easy and tasty dessert where you only need to mix the ingredients. Because of this, it is a popular choice for a dessert for parties especially when you’re strapped for time. The basic fruit salad is a combination of cream, condensed milk and a drained can of fruit cocktail. However, throughout the years, there have already been different variations of fruit salads. Sometimes sweet corn kernels are added, cream cheese, coconut, cheese, etc. The recipe below is the one I favour the most.

Ingredients:

500 ml all-purpose cream, chilled

125 ml condensed milk (approximately)

1 big can of fruit cocktail, drained (around 432 grams)

2 apples (cut roughly into irregular shapes) (optional)

Coconut meat from 1 coconut (thin strips) (optional)

50 grams cheese, cubed (I used the Cheezee brand – pasteurized cheese product)
