Tropical Cool Fruit Delight












I usually make this dessert when I have company or if I have to take dessert for a potluck party because this recipe serves about 12-15 people. You is hard to reduce the recipe to half or less because most of the ingredients used are from cans, unless you have left over canned ingredients from any other recipe.



Ingredients:



3 tubs of 8 oz lite non dairy topping

1 cup of whipping cream

1 cup of milk

1 can of condensed milk

1 8 oz pack of lite cream cheese softened at room temperature

1 8 oz container of lite sour cream

Juice from one fresh lime

1 14 oz can of pineapple tidbits

1 16 oz can of tropical fruits

1 20 oz can of Lychees chopped in to small pieces

2 14 oz cans of mandarin oranges (use about 1.5 can in the recipe and keep the rest for garnish

1 14 oz can of mango slices of 1 cup of fresh mango cubed (make sure fresh mango or mango in the can is not fibrous)

1 cup of chopped fresh strawberry and some extra for garnish

1 cup of grapes sliced or any seasonal fruits of your choice

1/2 cup of red delicious apple finely chopped

1 cup of raspberries (frozen or fresh)

1/2 cup of blackberries (frozen)

1/2 cup of dried sweetened cranberries

1/2 cup of raisins

1/2 cup of marshmallows (optional)

1/2 cup of chopped walnuts (optional)



Method:


• With a hand mixer mix whipping cream, milk, non dairy toppings, condensed milk, regular milk, and sour cream until well blended to smooth texture.

• Add freshly squeezed juice from one lime to it, blend it again.

• Drain juices and liquid from all the canned fruits and fold them in the above cream mixture.

• Garnish with extra strawberries and Mandarins (may use Kiwi slices for some green color)

• Refrigerate for 2 -3 hours before serving.



Note: You may add or delete any fruit or ingredient that you like or dislike from above recipe. Basically you can not go wrong with the base which is blend of creams and condensed milk.

Some people like to add bananas to this, but not one of my or kids favorite fruit so I usually omit it.
