Fruit Salad

I’ve eaten this wonderful fruit salad as breakfast, snack, dessert, side dish and I think main dish. Fruit alone, especially this time of year, is so good, juicy and sweet. But, add this secret ingredient and it’s over the top. Kids will love it.

The secret ingredient? It’s simply sugar free, fat free, instant vanilla pudding!

All you need is some fresh, beautiful fruit and the pudding. Easy. Feel free to use whatever fruit you have or what is on sale. Here is what I used for TWO batches. This worked perfectly to take one to a party and keep one at home.

  • 2 golden delicious apples, diced
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • about 1 lb. purple grapes, sliced in half
  • 1 small cantaloupe, diced
  • 1 large container strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • about 3 pints of blueberries
  • 1 package instant, sugar free vanilla pudding

Again, this is for two batches. All of the fruit made probably about 30 cups of fruit! You can easily downscale this and use as much or as little pudding as you like. I think this is best prepared the day before so the pudding can work with the fruit juice to thicken up.

I don’t have a photo of the finished product, but the pudding works with the fruit juice to create a shiny gloss on the fruit. Delicious! Enjoy.
