Yet another hit in Filipino parties, This Filipino Fruit Salad Recipe is an easy-to-make dessert not only for homey parties but also in big celebrations and what makes it so great is that there’s actually no cooking involved.

Again, keeping in touch with the Filipino sweet tooth, the ingredients in this fruit salad recipe are all sweet and all store-bought, making it very accessible especially if you are cramming that birthday party for your 7-year old.

You will need canned Fruit Cocktail, All-Purpose Cream which is a heavy cream used to give the fruit salad texture and for it to hold the fruits together once the salad solidifies in the refrigerator, and canned Condensed Milk which is just heavy, sweetened milk.

If you are feeling bold, you can add diced Cheese and Apples if not included in the Fruit Cocktail.

Filipino Fruit Salad Recipe Preparation

To follow this Filipino Fruit Salad recipe, drain the fruit cocktail of its juice and transfer it in a mixing bowl. Add the all-purpose cream and the condensed milk and mix all three ingredients together.

You can add more all-purpose cream or more condensed milk depending on your taste. After mixing all of the ingredients well, you can now refrigerate it and serve it chilled the next day.
