Ingredients

Fruit salad

  • 1 cup strawberries hulled and sliced
  • 1 cup pineapple diced
  • 1 cup cantaloupe diced
  • 1 cup papaya diced
  • 1 large banana sliced into rounds
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries

For the Sweet Creamy Sauce

  • 1/3 cup sour cream or Mexican cream
  • 1/3 cup plain yogurt
  • 1/3 cup condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Topping Ideas

  • Granola
  • Pecans
  • Raisins

Instructions

  • Toss the fruit gently in a large bowl. Refrigerate while you mix the sauce ingredients.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the sweet creamy sauce ingredients.
  • Place a spoonful of the creamy sauce into individual serving bowls. Top the sauce with fruit. Right before serving, drizzle each fruit salad bowl with remaining sauce (about 1/4 cup each). Top with your preferred toppings. Serve.

Notes

  • Use ripe seasonal fruits for best results.
  • Other fruit combinations can include chopped apples and pears, grapes, raspberries, blackberries, pitted cherries, chopped peaches.
  • For a thicker consistency use plain Greek yogurt. Regular plain yogurt has a thiner, sauce-like consistency which I prefer for this recipe.
  • Double the sauce ingredients for a sweeter dessert.
  • Don’t cut up or mix in the bananas until you are ready to serve this dish. Bananas turn brown quickly after they are peeled and cut.
  • You can store the chopped fruit and the sauce separately in the refrigerator. I don't recommend storing the fruit combined with the sauce.
  • Dairy-Free Alternatives: Substitute the crema or sour cream with cashew crema and choose dairy-free yogurt such as coconut yogurt. Instead of sweetened condensed milk, use store bought or try this recipe for homemade.
