Creamy White Chocolate and Coconut Milk Fruit Salad

Creamy White Chocolate and Coconut Milk Fruit Salad, drained fruit cocktail, peach chunks, pineapple chunks, and mandarin oranges all folded in a mixture of instant white chocolate pudding and coconut milk.   Serve it as a salad or serve it as a dessert like we do most of the time. 

I have seen recipes for this fruit salad in many variations.  Although I have made most of them, my husband decided this one is his favorite.

I made them with canned fruit as well as with fresh fruit, but I think the game changer for this salad is the coconut milk.  I usually mix whole milk with instant vanilla pudding, but this time, I decided to use a can of coconut milk I had in the pantry with a package of instant white chocolate pudding.

The coconut milk made the salad so rich and creamy.  

This is a super easy dish to whip up for potlucks, weeknight meals, and any side dish to welcome home a new mother.  Adults and children alike will love this fruit salad.

The fruit salad is so refreshing and fun to make.  I hope you get to make some during these summer months.

Creamy White Chocolate and Coconut Milk Fruit Salad
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 pkg. (4 servings) white chocolate instant pudding
  • 2 (15 oz) fruit cocktail, drained really well
  • 2 (15 oz) peach chunks, drained really well
  • 2 (20 oz) pineapple chunks, drained really well
  • 2 (15 oz) mandarin oranges, drained really well
In a medium bowl, add coconut milk and instant pudding and mix until creamy and smooth with a wire whisk (If the mixture is lumpy, pour through a sieve, and it will be fine.); set aside until thickens. 

In a large bowl, add all the drained fruit.  Pour pudding mixture over fruit.  

Fold in the pudding mixture with the drained fruit coating fruit well being careful not to break down the pudding texture.  Refrigerate immediately so the pudding and fruit will set.  Refrigerate at least 2 hours.
