Frozen Fruit Salad

Holly Deshane


This was a recipe that my mother used to make for my father--he loved it. It's a great recipe for a hot summer day. And, very easy to throw together.

My husband's mother used to make him frozen fruit salad when he was a child, and this recipe is about as close to her's as you can get! It was a big winner all around our table. Perfect for brunches, luncheons, or any special occasion. The Test Kitchen

How to Make Frozen Fruit Salad


  1. Stir first three ingredients together until creamy
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients
  3. Fold in the cool whip
  4. Pour ingredients into a loaf pan and freeze
  5. This salad freezes like an ice cube--I would recommend taking it out of the freezer for about 30-45 minutes before serving to let it soften a bit. (It also tastes better if it has softened) That way it will come out of the loaf pan easier
    another idea is to line the loaf pan with foil and just pull the foil/salad out of the pan
