Frozen Fruit Salad

Sometimes the deliciousness of a food is based as much on nostalgia as it is on flavor. Such is the case with Frozen Fruit Salad, which is an old-fashioned treat that’ll take you back to days gone by with just one bite but also happens to be totally scrumptious. It’s (more or less) a fruit salad that’s been folded into a sweet and creamy mixture before being frozen into sliceable form. It’s cool and creamy, but still lets the true flavor of the fruit shine through and (if you’re asking me) has way more staying power than its outdated cousin the jello salad.


Now, your grandma might have made this with cherries or a can of fruit cocktail or added some nuts, but Gram used this sweet and simple combination of bananas, strawberries, and pineapple. And that’s one of the nice things about this – it’s versatile enough that you can swap out fruit for whatever you happen to have on hand. The magic is really in the frozen creamy mixture that ties everything together, so there are countless combinations of fruit that would work well.


Prep time: 25 Min Serves: 10-12


1 small carton of sour cream

1/2 c sugar

2 Tbsp lemon juice

1/4 c chopped maraschino cherries

1/2 c nuts

1 large can of crushed pineapple–drained

2 diced bananas

c cool whip


1. Stir first three ingredients together until creamy

2. Add the rest of the ingredients

3. Fold in the cool whip

4. Pour ingredients into a loaf pan and freeze

5. This salad freezes like an ice cube–I would recommend taking it out of the freezer for about 30-45 minutes before serving to let it soften a bit. (It also tastes better if it has softened) That way it will come out of the loaf pan easier another idea is to line the loaf pan with foil and just pull the foil/salad out of the pan
