Fruits, whether exotic or ordinary, can be a great way to have a quick snack or complement a well cooked meal. There are not many other dessert alternatives that are quite as healthy as fruit, and if well prepared a fruit salad can be just what the doctor ordered.

What follows is a simple recipe that anyone can make in a matter of minutes but which can delight and even impress those at your table or party. With only a few simple ingredients and a few enjoyable fruits, you can get those vitamins and antioxidants you have needed while relishing a good snack.

This fruit salad is extremely versatile and you could probably supplement the fruit listed for any others you think you would prefer. You can do it with fewer fruit or add more according to your preference. You could also try spicing things up a bit by adding cinnamon or lemon to the mix.

Creamy Fruit Salad
Summary: Different kinds of fruit with various textures blend with vanilla-scented cream for an aromatic and gorgeous-tasting dessert which is packed with nutrients. This is a colorful dish too.
Cuisine: American
Recipe type: Salad
Serves: 3
Prep time: 
Total time: 
  • Grapes
  • 2 apples
  • 1 pear
  • ½ a small fresh pineapple (or 3 sliced from can)
  • 2 mangoes
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • ½ tsp. vanilla
  • 2 tsp. sugar
  1. Remove the grape from their stems and slice each in half lengthways. Add these to a bowl where you will be mixing the fruit salad, about medium sized.
  2. Peel and core the apples and pear with a paring knife and chop into dice sized cubes of about an inch or less. You can leave the peel on if you prefer for aesthetic or nutritional purposes.
  3. Cut off the top and bottom of the fresh pineapple and get rid of the thick outer skin. Make sure to completely get rid of any of the unsightly brown holes on the outer edges, and the cut the pineapple in half. Save the other half for later. If you prefer canned pineapple then pick some out of the juice and proceed to the cutting. Chop the pineapple into bite sized pieces or wedges.
  4. Peel and cut the mangoes into bite sized squares as well, taking care not to handle or squish them too much. Gently add the mangoes, pineapple, apples, and pear into the bowl with the grapes.
  5. In a separate bowl mix the cream, vanilla, and sugar until they are thoroughly combined. Pour ¾ of it into the fruit, and gently mix until everything is coated. Put the whole salad into some nice glasses or a large bowl, drizzle the remaining cream over the top, and serve.
