Fruit Salad Mix

Marian prepared a Fruit Salad Mix for dessert in the South Arm Cooking Club for Seniors. This is a very simple recipe using can fruit cocktails but freshen up with the addition of  fresh fruits.


The Fruit Salad Mix is flexible as you may add any fresh fruit of your choice. Fruits in the season is preferred for they are cheaper and loaded with vitamins.


  • 2 cans fruit cocktail
  • 1/2 to 1 can condensed milk
  • 1 can all purpose thick cream
  • 1 cup strawberries, hulled and chopped
  • 1 cup pears, peeled, cored and chopped

    I wouldn’t recommend this salad to seniors or anyone in general. The canned fruits and condensed milk is loaded with added sugar. I would suggest using fresh fruits and low fat yogurt instead of condensed milk.
