Fluffy Fruit Salad

My mom makes this fruit salad for every special occasion and it’s a family favorite! The fruit adds just the right amount of sweetness to the whipped cream.  You can vary the amount of marshmallows according to your taste but ALWAYS use white, NEVER colored, right Mom? ;)

1 c heavy whipping cream                        
1 medium sized can mandarin oranges, drained                        
1 medium sized can pineapple tidbits, drained
1 c miniature white marshmallows
1/4 c chopped pecans                                                      
Whip the cream with an electric mixer until light and fluffy (careful not to whip too long or it will get to butter stage). Fold in mandarin oranges, pineapple, marshmallows and pecans. Chill before serving. Enjoy!


  1. Have you ever added orange jello (dry)? My mom did it that way. I'm trying yours next.
