Fruit Salads are considered one of the highlights of every Filipino family’s Christmas Eve celebration. You know, when people are preparing for the grandest celebration of the year, there are common things that they buy during a run to the grocery store! There’s the Christmas Ham, Spaghetti Sauce, and Pasta, and then there’s a huge can of Fruit Cocktail with Condensed Milk and All-Purpose Cream! That’s right, the last one is for the good old fruit salad that we all love! It’s like the number one dessert for Filipinos after a hearty and delicious meal after Christmas Eve.
There are also other types of salads that Filipinos love to eat during the holiday season. There’s the Macaroni Salad, Vegetable Salad, Potato Salad, and many more. However, the classic homemade Fruit Salad really has a special place in our hearts. Personally, when I hear the word “Fruit Salad”, I remember all the times I helped my mom prepare it in the morning before our Christmas Eve dinner!
On the other hand, there isn’t a rule saying that we should only eat Fruit Salads during Christmas Eve, right? We can make it whenever and wherever we want! After all, it’s a nice dessert to eat if you’re practicing to live a healthy lifestyle.
So, if you’re planning to make your own version of the classic fruit salad at home, then perhaps it’s your lucky day! Today, Panlasang Pinoy will teach you how to make the classic fruit salad! But wait, there’s a twist. Now that our health is even more important than ever, we will be adding fresh fruits to the traditional fruit cocktail. More nutrients and more delicious!
Pretty exciting, huh? So, without further ado, let’s start making Panlasang Pinoy’s Classic Fruit Salad using Fresh Fruits!
Of course, you don’t have to worry! All of the needed ingredients can be easily found at your local markets and grocery store. Are you ready? Then let’s begin!
First of all, the ingredients we’ll be needing are a can of Angel Kremdensada, condensed milk, Angel Evaporated Milk, fruit cocktail, Nata de Coco, banana, apple, and grapes! Panlasang Pinoy likes to use Angel Kremdensada because it combines the goodness of cream and condensed milk in one can. The best part? It’s easy to use and relatively cheap! Moreover, we trust Angel because it only uses top-notch quality ingredients in all of its products!
Moving on! The first thing we have to do is create the sauce overflowing with creamy goodness for our fruit salad. To do this, simply combine the Angel Kremdensada, evaporated milk, and condensed milk in one bowl. Mix all of the ingredients well until they reach the same consistency.
Next, we will now combine all of the fruits that we’ll be using. This includes the banana, apple, grapes, fruit cocktail, and Nata de Coco. Make sure to slice the bananas and apples into bite-sized pieces for easy consumption. After that, simply pour the creamy sauce mixture into the fruit mixture. Carefully mix them all up until all the flavors are incorporated with each other.
Finally, wipe the container clean and refrigerate the fruit salad! It is recommended that you put it in the chiller for the best taste and texture. It depends on how long you want to refrigerate the fruit salad, but about 4 to 6 hours is already enough. And that’s it! You’ve successfully made the classic fruit salad at home, with fresh fruits!
Easy peasy, right? You could have pulled that off in like ten minutes! Of course, you can always be creative and add your favorite fruits and delights into the fruit salad. You could add mangoes, cheese, tapioca, gulaman, and many more, just to increase the texture and flavor offered by your fruit salad.
