A CREAMY AND FRUIT DESSERT
Orange Creamsicle Fruit Salad is a no-bake dessert full or mandarin oranges, pineapple tidbits and bananas in a creamy pudding. I've shared a number of these fluff-style salads over the last few years: Ambrosia Salad, Cherry Pie Fluff, Pistachio Fluff, Orange Fluff and Pineapple Fluff. They all pretty much start with cool whip and then additional ingredients are added to make them a little different.
CAN I SUBSTITUTE THE COOL WHIP?
Yes, you could certainly make your own fresh whipped cream. The only small issue with that is homemade whipped cream doesn't stay stable for long. It breaks down and gets liquid-y fairly quickly. Cool Whip holds up better for these kinds of salads but feel free to make and enjoy what you prefer! Also, change up the fruit with what you prefer. Sliced grapes would be a wonderful addition or substitution or even some sliced kiwi!
