Cream Fruit Salad

Assorted fruits & nuts in Cream



This is a post that has been in my drafts for a week, the one which I had planned to post before I started to India. But in the hurry burry of the packing & cleaning & last minute shopping & preparations, I did not get time. Yes, this was a sudden twist in the normal vacation plan of ours. We had to start 2 weeks ahead of our anticipated plan & that too in a notice of 5 days.. So u can imagine the work package that come with it :D But anyways happy to get an extended vacation & enjoyment in the scorching heat of South India !! 


So back to the post, this is a very simple & quick dessert that can be prepared with the available fruits & nuts at hand. I had it at my friend Rameena's place & immediately fell in love with it. And so one day when I had a craving I messaged her for the recipe.. I knew it was a simple one, but wanted to get it right, exactly like hers ;) You know, this is an easy way to feed fruits to kids & also even adults too !! So, off to the recipe ;)

I Took: 20 minutes


Serves: 4 ppl


I Used:

Cream - 300 ml
Vanilla Essence - 1 tsp
Sugar - 3 tbsp or As Needed
Mango - 1 no
Apple - 1 no
Honey dew - ½ a normal sized fruit
Almonds - As Needed
Cashews - As Needed
Raisins - As Needed



The Way:

  1. Whip up the cream with sugar & vanilla essence till it gives a nice foamy texture
  2. Cut the fruits into cubes as for fruit salad and add it to the whipped up cream
  3. Add the chopped nuts and give a mix. This tastes more heavenly when you roast the nuts in a little ghee before adding to the whipped up cream
  4. Refrigerate for an hour or overnight as time permits & serve chilled


Notes:

You can use any fruit & nut of your choice. I used the ones that I had available that day !!

Cheers,
Chitz
