This is an updated version of the classic frozen fruit salad. It is simple and delicious.  You will be amazed at how delicious it is!

I love this recipe! It comes together so fast, it has marshmallows in it (my favorite!) and it is a nice cold treat for a hot day! It is sweet, fluffy and a perfect dessert!

The classic recipes for frozen salads include mayo and serving it on a piece of lettuce. There is something about adding mayo to a dessert that just doesn’t settle with me. Mayo belongs on a sandwich or chicken salad, but a dessert? No thanks!

This recipe uses cool whip and sweetened condensed milk for its creamy delicious base. Add in a little lemon juice, some fruit and marshmallows (just because I love them!), mix and freeze. Seriously, this frozen fruit salad is so good and so simple.

I like to make it the morning of or the night before I want to serve it. You can use whatever fruit that you want. I picked pears, maraschino cherries and pineapple for this one, but strawberries, blueberries and mandarins would work too! Or any other fruit you could think of! I also used canned fruit but this will work with fresh fruit too. It is so easy and so delicious!
