Once again, not the best picture, but seriously, it's soo good! I love the cream cheese and all the variety of fruit, yum! This was my Great-Grandmother's recipe. Seems like it'd be old, but I knew her very well, you can call her Nanny, b/c everybody did. Nanny was very close to my family, she was closer to us than my normal grandparents. She died when I was a senior in high school, totally unexpected. I believe we were at the mall, just a few days prior to that, shopping for clothes, weird. She was great! So, in memory of Nanny, here's her famous Frozen Fruit Salad (famous in my family anyways).
I always make this the day before Thanksgiving, that way it's done and out of the way.
Cream together cream cheese and sugar in a large bowl, mix in strawberries and pineapples.
Fold in 2 sliced large bananas and...
Transfer into a 9x13 baking dish, cover and freeze for at least 3 hours, or overnight.
Let sit out at room temperature for 30 minutes before serving.
Frozen Pineapple, Banana, Strawberry Fruit Salad
3/4 c. Sugar
8 oz Cream Cheese (room temp.)
20 oz Can Crushed Pineapples
2 Sliced Bananas (dip in lemon juice to keep from browning, optional)
1 Tub Cool Whip
10 oz Frozen Sliced Strawberries
Cream together the sugar and cream cheese. Mix in pineapples and strawberries. Fold in the bananas and cool whip. Spread evenly in a 9x13 baking dish and freeze for at least 3 hours. Take out of the freezer 30 minutes prior to serving (or it'll be way too hard to cut, if this happens you can also place a thing of hot water underneath the pan to soften. I've had to do that plenty of times ;). Enjoy!
