Title: Lightly whipped cream fruit salad
Post by: Heba E. Husseyn on January 14, 2011, 11:32:00 pm
Here's a recipe for a very quick yet delicious dessert.  It can be made in minutes.  You just need the ingredients handy.  It's also known as fruit salad mixed with heavy cream.

Just an example.  I don't use exactly these fruits.  

Heavy cream

1 (17 oz.) can fruit cocktail, drained well
1 can mandarin oranges, drained well or 1 cup fresh orange segments
1 sliced banana, fresh
1 medium apple, cut in chunks (may take skin off or leave on)
whipped cream

Mix all fruits together in large bowl. Fold in whipped cream and mix together to coat the fruits.

If you like, you can add some fresh green seedless grapes too.  Usually canned fruit cocktails do not contain much grapes, sometimes none. 

Another wonderful variation is to sprinkle your whipped cream fruit salad with grated chocolate.  You can use a regular bar of milk chocolate.  Just grate it and sprinkle over the salad.  Grated chocolate can be a fabulous combination with this dessert.

A third variation is the simplest.  A few weeks ago my family and I were invited at a house dinner.   Instead of a mixed fruit salad with whipped cream, we had simply fresh orange segments with heavy cream.  I had no idea it would taste so delicious until I actually had it.  And it's more uncommon than a mixed fruit preparation.

Put the orange segments in a decorative bowl.  And serve with heavy cream in another bowl so that every individual can add as much cream to the orange segments as they like.
