Creamy Fruit Salad Recipe


This creamy fruit salad recipe is the perfect ending to a relaxed summer meal. All of us love the abundance of fresh fruits available during the summer months, especially those wonderful strawberries. This little, sweet, juicy fruit is packed with nutrition and flavor. It is loaded with vitamin C, iron, pectin (which may help reduce cholesterol levels), and it even has anti-inflammatory qualities.

Served in parfait glasses it makes an eye-catching presentation.
