Easy 5 Cup Fruit Salad

Easy 5 Cup Fruit Salad


  • 1 cup fruit cocktail
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup mini marshmallows
  • 1 cup crushed pineapple
  • *You can substitute the fruit cocktail or pineapple for mandarin oranges or any fruit that you’d prefer
  • *We also have substituted 1 cup of whipped cream (or to taste) for the sour cream if you prefer less of the tangy flavor. I personally love the unique, little bit of tang that the sour cream adds, but your kids may prefer the whipped cream flavor.


  1. If using any fresh fruit, chop up fruit into bite size pieces
  2. Dump all your ingredients into a bowl.
  3. Stir it all together
  4. Chill until ready to eat.
  5. This will feed a family of 3-4. If you’d like to make it for larger groups, you can easily double or triple the ingredients to make more.
  6. It’s really that simple – love this recipe as you can put it together in minutes!
