A friend tried to tell me about a recipe she seen in an Atkins cookbook, but she couldn't remember it in detail. So I took what little she told me and adapted it to fit my own style by adding ingredients that I thought would work well together, thus creating this delicious recipe! Now it's the one dish that I'm asked to bring to every event I go to. It's perfect during the summmer, but is easily loved throughout the year!

How To Make jenn's heavenly fruit salad

  • 1
    Wash and slice all fruit to desired size, set aside. Using an electric hand mixer, mix together the cream cheese and marshmallow fluff until well blended. *Do not over mix because it will become "soupy" making it hard to stick to the fruit! If over mixed, put mixture into refrigerator to help it harden so it's more manageable. If it does not harden enough, add more marshmallow fluff. (you can mix by hand, but an electronic hand mixer is much faster and easier)

    Gently fold in fruit until well blended and evenly spread throughout. You can serve immediately, but for best results, chill in refrigerator for 10-20 minutes. Enjoy!

    **You can adjust the amount of marshmallow fluff and cream cheese to fit your taste. I prefer to have my fruit fully coated, so I use extra. ***For best results use fresh fruit, but frozen fruit works just as well! Just remember to completely thaw out the bag of fruit before using or it will become mushy and watery! ****Have fun experimenting with different types of berries, in different combinations. You can add a few of one type of berry and a lot of another.
