Frozen Champagne Fruit Salad

FROZEN CHAMPAGNE FRUIT SALAD

INGREDIENTS:
1 Cream Cheese, 8 Oz., softened
3/4 Cup Sugar
1 Can Crushed Pineapple, 16 0z., drained
10 oz. to 1 Lb. —Frozen Strawberries with juice
2 Lg. Bananas, sliced
1 Cup nuts, chopped (your choice){pecans, walnuts, macadamias, ?}
[If you, like I, have someone allergic to nuts, substitute a cup of
green seedless grapes, cut in half]
1 tub Cool Whip, 9 Oz.
NOPE – no champagne

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Blend cream cheese and sugar.
  2. Mix pineapple, strawberries, bananas and nuts.
  3. Fold topping into the fruits and nuts.
  4. Combine the two mixtures.
  5. Pour into mold or Bundt Cake pan. Cover well. Freeze solid.
  6. To serve, thaw slightly ( about 15 minutes at room temperature)
  7. Unmold (may place towel, soaked in hot water and wrung dry
    outside of container for a short time), invert onto serving platter, and
    slice to serve. Serve additional whipped topping, if desired. Also serve
    CHAMPAGNE; they go well together, thus the name.
    This keeps very well in the freezer for an extended time, if carefully
    sealed.

We served this for special buffet occasions. It goes over very well. It’s so good!
