Fruit Salad

We both love fruits and I make sure to have at least one serving of fruits every day. But sometimes only fruits are not sufficient and you have to find a way to have them different exotic way. Then the other day when I was craving for some nice dessert, I thought to experiment with fruits.

There are several versions of Fruit Salad. It can be as simple as just mixing variety of fruits or sophisticated rich creamy version. The most popular among we Indians/Gujaratis is to boil milk with sugar and little custard, chill it and add finely cut fruits when ready to serve. It has got liquid texture and served along with main course. The one I experimented is more like American version served after main course.

I'm happy that dessert can also be nutritious :)

Serves 4
Preparation Time: 15 Minute
Cooking Time: 5 minute + refrigeration time

1 cup whipped cream
1/4 cup vanilla pudding
2 cup cut fruits (I used apple, banana, strawberry and red grapes)
8-10 pc almonds
1/4 cup walnuts

1. Mix whipped cream, pudding and cut fruits
2. Toast almonds and walnuts at 300 F for 4-5 minute, roughly chop them and add to fruits mixture
3. serve chilled

This can be prepared in advance and it stays good in refrigerator for couple of days.
