Easy Fruit Salad

This quick and delicious fruit salad recipe was shared with me by a blogging fan, Linda Silvernail. (Thank you Linda!) I made this recipe often when my kids were young.  It’s frugal also.

I love that you can use sugar free pudding along with no sugar added fruit, for a special taste treat for those having to watch their sugar intake. 

I suggest slightly draining all the fruit for a thicker result.  You can always add more juice, but it does thicken as it sets up. 


Easy Fruit Salad

1 can fruit cocktail (15 oz.) slightly drained 
1 small can mandarin oranges, slightly drained 
1 can pineapple tidbits (15 oz.), do not drain
3-4 bananas (sliced)
1 (4 serv.)pkg. (sugar free) lemon (or vanilla or cheesecake) instant pudding
4 - 8 ozs. cool whip, optional 

In large bowl, stir fruits & pudding together. If using, stir in cool whip. Refrigerate at least 1 hr. before serving.
