Fruit Cocktail Salad with Graham Crackers for Christmas

Want to have Yummy-licious day or just Picture Perfect moments?

If your answer is yes, this is the perfect place or the perfect web to be..............

Since it's been almost three weeks before Christmas, it is just right to practice and prepare some menu or dish or any food that can be serve this holiday. First of all, one of my favorite is really salad--it could be macaroni or fruit salad as long as it's sweet then I'm good at it (yes, I have sweet tooth). Last weekend, my sister and I made a fruit salad with a twist because we put some grahams on it. It was a successful and really refreshing because after so many years it was the first time we made something like it. It's delicious!

We actually made two batches of fruit salads, the first one is just a fruit cocktail and the other one is with graham crackers. We did it on purposed because we wanted to have an option since it was really the first time.

So, here's the step by step procedure and the ingredients we used. :)

When making a fruit salad you have two option, it's either you will used the fresh fruits (you will pear it, chopped it and you will sliced it) or you can use the one in can that you can buy in any grocery store to make your life a bit easier. Either way it will work.



And since we want to make it fast we used the one in can. And you see the red and white ingredients there? That's kaong (It is a tropical fruit that comes from the sugar palm tree), in many Filipino deserts kaong is actually one of the main star. Kaong is smooth, soft and slippery. And what I like about this ingredient is that the sweetness is just right.



Then after putting all the fruits, we added the condensed milk and the cream to add some sweetness and consistency to the flavors.


An over-flowing goodness that everybody can't wait to taste. Of course, after putting all the ingredients we will mix it all together. So, all the fruits can have the right portion of the milk and cream.



While we are almost done with Salad fruit cocktail, we are going to prepare now the graham.



And then, on top of graham crackers we will put the fruit salad.
I'm sure the graham will absorb all the goodness in our fruit salad and we will about to taste that later.



So, we have graham crackers on the bottom then we put some fruit salad on top of it. We will actually gonna do it twice--it's like graham + fruit salad + graham + fruit salad = Graham Fruit Cocktail.



Well, this is it!

When it's done we can put it in a fridge before serve.



And here it is after we placed it in a fridge. Chilled and ready for  tasting.



And here's our Fruit Cocktail that we made earlier also came from a fridge and ready to be tasted. By the way, I didn't mentioned earlier that we put some coconut strips on it but you can see it here. It's more delicious for sure. Yummy!

So, we have here two kind of salad with almost the same ingredients. Both are delicious, very flavorful and very inviting to see and taste.

Why don't you make some? Especially, holiday season is almost here it is really good if you and your loved one will enjoy some sweet treats. I truly believed that these desserts are going to be the star of your celebration because the whole family can enjoy it.

Anyway folks, that's about it for now and thanks for stopping by...until next time...:)

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
