Secret Fruit Salad with Vanilla Pudding Mix
Prep time: 
Total time: 
This recipe serves 4, but can easily be doubled or tripled for larger parties.
  • 750g fresh fruit, I used strawberries, pineapple, raspberries and blueberries
  • 1 teaspoon dry instant vanilla pudding mix*
  1. Wash (and slice) the fruit. Combine it in a medium-sized bowl.
  2. Sieve the pudding mix over the top of the fruit, then toss until evenly coated. Allow to sit for at least half an hour in the fridge so that the pudding mix has time to soak up all the fruit juices.
  3. Serve immediately or cover with plastic wrap and serve the next day.
* I achieved best results with an instant pudding mix that doesn't need to be cooked, but is just whisked into milk (like Jello Instant Vanilla Pudding). I tried making this salad with custard powder (which needs to be cooked) but it made the fruit salad unpleasantly chalky.
