FROZEN FRUIT SALAD
(Some of my photos go way back – before I knew what I was doing with a camera! Disregard that…just know that this is much more gorgeous tasting than it looks!!)
This is an old favorite that my mom used to make for special meals. She served it as a salad, but it would be great as a dessert, too. It’s very refreshing and light.
One 8-ounce pkg. fat-free cream cheese
1/4 cup reduced fat mayonnaise
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup Splenda
1 1/2 cups Splenda-sweetened whipped cream or sugar free Cool Whip
One 20-ounce can pineapple chunks in juice, drained
One 12-ounce can mandarin oranges, drained
6 marachino cherries, finely chopped
1/2 cup chopped pecans, optional
Whip together cream cheese, mayonnaise, lemon juice, vanilla, and Splenda until fluffy. Fold in whipped cream and fruits. Pour into 1 large loaf pan or 3 mini loaf pans. Wrap tightly with plastic wrap and foil. Freeze overnight or until solid. To serve, set pan in hot water for a few seconds and invert over plate. Slice and serve. Makes 10 servings.
