Not much trumps a good fruit salad. That is unless it’s a fruit salad with marshmallows and cream. I’ve had this at several cookouts and potlucks but never made it at home. Now I am wondering why because it’s completely refreshing and satisfying year-round. I love being able to open my refrigerator and BOOM there it is my favorite creamy fruit salad. I dish myself up a huge spoonful, or two, and dig in. For me, I really don’t need anything else.
I could eat it for breakfast, brunch, lunch and in-between! I have to say, my husband and kids feel the same. When we ran out of this batch after a few days there were cries of disappointment and pointing fingers of who had more and who finished the last bit. While normally arguments are annoying I was proud that I’d made something everyone loved enough to get up in arms about it.

Many people serve this as a dessert but you know what? I’m a little funny because I love having this for breakfast. In fact, I have also had this for lunch and I think it beats any sandwich, anytime! It’s sweet, light and refreshing, and so easy to bring with you to work. I do believe I’ve made my colleagues green with envy!
I also get requests now that I’ve made it. I think It’d be lovely at the holidays with cherries and pineapple – yum! I am definitely going to whip it up as a side, since much of our holiday meal is heavy. I’m actually getting excited just thinking about it! Oh, I give up… I’ll probably make some this weekend!
2 eggs, beaten
