Fruit Salad - Dessert Recipe


Fruit Salad is a very simple,easy & quick to make Dessert. This is my Mom's recipe & she often made this when we were kids.  Since this recipe is very easy I was contemplating whether I should post it or not. But then thought with the festive season kicking in, parties/celebrations/get-together happening there will be need to make some fancy yet quick dessert. Fruits mixed with milk & condensed milk is my all time favorite dessert. It can be made ahead of time & stored in refrigerator till time to serve. Best part is its loved by all age-groups. 

I have used the fruits readily available for me but you can use the variety you like. Chikoo & mango give a great flavor to this dessert so would highly recommend adding these fruits if available. I prefer to keep this dessert simple (i.e. fruits simply mixed with milk & condensed milk) which helps to get the original flavors of fruits like sour, sweet, tangy all in one bite. However to jazz it a bit, you could always top it with some dry fruits or chocolate. 

Now to the recipe....



Ingredients: 
1 banana cut into bite size pieces
1 apple skin removed & cut into bite size pieces
1 orange peeled & cut into bite size pieces
few grapes cut into bite size pieces
few strawberries cut into bite size pieces
1/2 cup of cold milk
1/2 of condensed milk
cardamom powder to taste



Method: 
Mix all ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Cover & refrigerate till use. 

Note: 

  • Banana & apple tend to get oxidized, so cut these fruits last & immediately add them to milk & condensed milk mixture. 
  • If you prefer it sweeter, add sugar to taste. 
  • For the additional crunch, you can top it with some dry-fruits or chocolate pieces. 
  • To make it richer, you can replace milk with cream and whip it till it gets a bit frothy and add condensed milk to that followed by fruits and nuts. 


That's it, our quick to make & yummy looking Fruit Salad is ready. Serve it cold. 

Happy Holidays!!
