Frozen Fruit Fantasy

Serve this tantalizing frozen treat on a blistering day, and you'll be a star. It's every bit as good as ice cream and less trouble to make. This recipe calls for the use of a 9x12-inch dish, but if all of it won't be consumed at once, it's a good idea to divide it among smaller dishes or individual ramekins.

Ingredients:
  • 2 8-ounce packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 8-ounce container frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 2 cups strawberry slices
  • 15-1/2-ounce can crushed pineapple, slightly drained
  • 1-1/2 cups sliced bananas
Preparation:
  1. Beat cream cheese at medium speed of an electric mixer until fluffy. Gradually add sugar, beating until smooth.
  2. Gently fold in the whipped topping and remaining ingredients, and spoon into a 9x13-inch dish OR one or more containers or ramekins (see Note). Cover with aluminum foil and freeze until firm, 3 to 6 hours depending upon the size of the dish.
  3. Remove from freezer and remove aluminum foil 20 to 30 minutes before serving.

Note: For a tropical twist, add small mango chunks. And remember, if all 10 or 12 servings won't be consumed at once, it's a good idea to divide it among a few smaller dishes or individual ramekins. The smaller dishes will soften more quickly once removed from the freezer.

Total time: 3 to 6 Hrs
