Frozen Cranberry Salad
This Frozen Cranberry Salad recipe is made with plenty of good fruits to justify calling it a fruit salad, but also has just enough decadence added in to make it worth eating for dessert, so try some of it soon. This Frozen Cranberry Salad recipe is a lovely blend of the so-called tropical flavors including bananas and pineapple. These fresh flavors are contrasted and complemented by the cranberry. In this cranberry salad recipe, a can of cranberry is called for, but consider making your cranberry sauce from scratch. Cranberries are often available in the frozen foods section of the grocery store at a very affordable price. So think fresh cranberries.
You might also consider replacing the artificial whipped topping in this frozen Cranberry Salad recipe with real cream. There is just no comparison to real and fresh, whipped cream. It is also high in fat; there is no way to avoid that. But growing kids do need good fat to help build strong bones and bodies. In whipped cream, you also get all the goodness of a dairy food. Here, that includes calcium and magnesium as well as good protein and, again, fats. But these nutritious ingredients are far better than using an artificial whipped topping that might contain all kinds of preservatives and additives, not to mention other chemicals that are used to make the topping itself. So try it when you make this cranberry salad recipe.
This combination of cranberries, pineapple, and bananas blended in whipped cream is a pretty decadent Frozen Cranberry Salad recipe that can also (arguably) be served for dessert. You could sprinkle the top of it with toasted nuts. You could choose toasted almonds, toasted hazelnuts, or even toasted pecans. Like all nuts, these ones will add loads of nutrition. Nuts, at least most of them, contain magnesium, calcium, phosphorous and potassium, to name only a few of the vitamins and minerals you might find in nuts and seeds. Just a few nuts will boost the nutrition and perhaps make you feel better about serving this yummy snack or treat to your family tonight.
