Fruit Salad Pudding
Creamy fruit salad—or fruit pudding dessert—this fresh and delicious concoction works both ways.
4 bananas, peeled and sliced
2 cups strawberries, hulled and sliced
1 (8-ounce) can pineapple chunks, drained, juice reserved
1 (11-ounce) can Mandarin orange sections, drained, juice reserved
1 (6-ounce) jar maraschino cherries, drained
1 (3.5-ounce) package vanilla pudding mix
- Combine bananas, strawberries, pineapple, orange sections and cherries in a large mixing bowl; set aside.
- Substitute reserved pineapple and orange juice for the amount of liquid asked for in the pudding cooking directions. Pour into medium saucepan, add pudding mix and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat slightly and cook until thick, stirring constantly, then fold into the fruit. Refrigerate at least an hour before serving.
