On to the good stuff! =) Below you will find the recipes from today's show. We hope you enjoy our spin on delicious fruit-filled treats!
Fluffy Fruit Dip
Although we didn't get a picture of this first snack specialty, we're sure you'll love it. It's super easy to make, and tastes delicious with any fruit.
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 (7 oz.) container marshmallow creme (We used Kraft Jet-Puffed Marshmallow Creme)
Mix ingredients until fluffy and smooth. Serve with assorted fruit of your choice. We recommend strawberries, pineapple, grapes, berries, etc.
This chilled soup is a sweet and tasty way for kids (and their grown-up helpers) to enjoy strawberries!!!!
1 qt. fresh strawberries, tops removed
1/2 c. sugar
16 oz. whole milk (you can use cream, if you prefer)
2 oz. sour cream
3 oz. strawberry yogurt
Put strawberries (with tops removed) in a bowl. Pour sugar over top and allow to sit for 10-15 minutes. Meanwhile, assemble your ingredients. Put half the strawberry/sugar mixture and half the milk in a blender. Blend until smooth. Add remaining ingredients, and blend until smooth. Serve cold!
Frozen Banana Salad
This tangy treat is sure to delight your taste buds. This one's considered dessert in our house! Thanks to Sue Turner for this recipe!
2 cups sour cream
1 (8 oz.) can crushed pineapple
1 Tblspn. lemon juice (This keeps the bananas from browning.)
1/2 cup nuts, chopped (optional; we use walnuts)
1/2 cup sugar
4 bananas, mashed
1 tsp. salt
1 (8 oz.) jar maraschino cherries, quartered (Reserve liquid.)
Mix all above ingredients well. May add just enough cherry liquid to get the shade of pink you want. Pour into 9x9 inch pan. Freeze. Garnish with a dab of sour cream and top with a cherry.
