DELICIOUS ORANGE CREAM FRUIT SALAD
Hi, I made this salad for supper, my husband declared that is was delicious but should be a dessert instead of salad. I didn’t have concentrated OJ, so instead of milk and OJ, I used 1 Cup of Tropicana Juice. The consistency turned out great. I drained my pineapple and oranges and let them sit in a strainer while mixing the pudding and OJ. I didn’t have any problem with it being to soupy. I also use bulk ingredients and used a 1/2 cup of pudding mix for my base. Do want to try it with jello sometime.
I doubled the recipe for a group of 40 and it was enough, but it was eaten up! The group LOVED it and I received many compliments of how good it was. It was easy and cheap for a crowd. I added bananas and mini marshmallows, and topped with another can of mandarin oranges right before serving. Yum!
1 package instant vanilla pudding mix
3/4 cup milk
1/3 cup frozen orange juice concentrate
1 (8oz) container Cool Whip
1 (20oz) can pineapple chunks or tidbits drained well
1 (11oz) can mandarin oranges drained well
2 medium bananas sliced
In a bowl, combine pudding mix, milk and orange juice concentrate. You can add a bit more milk if needed to reach the desired consistency
Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed for about 2 minutes and then fold in the Cool Whip.
Gently mix in the canned fruit and chill in the fridge for 2-3 hours until ready to serve.
We have so many mandarin oranges in the pantry pretty much at all times – this recipe will be a fabulous way to use them up! Thank you!
This looks delicious! Can’t wait to try it!
I recall preparing this salad when it first came out in Taste of Home. I did not have the pineapple tidbits on hand. I’d used drained, crushed pineapple and a regular 15-oz. can of drained peach halves, sliced and 5 medium Navel oranges, peeled and cut into slices. I used1 cup sour cream. I’d kept the apples and bananas the same …To Find Out All The Yummy Ingredients And The Step By Step Directions To Follow for this Delicious recipes,Please Head On Over To Next Page Or Open button
