To save money and prep time, use frozen fruit as the base of this recipe. Even if you put this together within an hour of leaving, your fruit salad will probably spend a lot of time thawing in the sun – so the frozen fruit is a great idea.

Just add juicy fresh-fruit accents, like blueberries, oranges, grapes and bananas and you’re ready to go!

NOTE: Frozen berries and cherries are great to use because they’re already hulled/pitted and washed, saving you valuable prep time.


2 cups frozen mango
1 cup frozen pineapple
2 cups frozen strawberries
1 cup frozen peaches
1 cup frozen cherries
2 pints fresh blueberries
2 cups orange pieces
2 cups banana chunks
1 cup grapes, green or red

To Make

  1. Add all ingredients to a bowl.

  3. Transfer to a container with lid. Secure with a tight-fitting lid, or add rubber bands and place in a plastic bag, tied well, to prevent leaks.
