fruit salad ice cream

do you freeze your fruit salad? i guess the better question is do you like fruit salad ice cream? we do, such that most of the time, when we make fruit salad it ends up in the freezer instead of the chiller. my nephew loves this stuff. he can eat a whole tub by himself. he can’t be blamed. who doesn’t love fruit salad ice cream — make that homemade fruit salad ice cream? (i hate the commercial versions though, the fruits taste like they’re synthetic.)

there was a can of broas (lady fingers) in the kitchen so i had some to go with the ice cream. this is actually a deconstructed crema de fruta if you think about it. πŸ˜€

    sorry, childhood memories of impatiently trying to chip bite-size chunks off what was a perfectly nice fruit salad before it was deliberately transformed into solid ice just came flooding back. i keep my fruit salad at a nice chilled temperature, thank you very much πŸ˜›

    that does look good with the ladyfingers, though … speaking of crema de fruta (what's the holidays without that? but now we can actually get that year-round year-round at red ribbon), had a very nice piece at my cousin's place the other night. it was his birthday celebration (dec. 23) and for dessert we had crema de fruta. his wife plunked a small candle in a hole in the middle of the plastic and we sang happy birthday πŸ˜€ it was really just an excuse for my nephew to blow the candle, LOL! and thank god they kept the plastic on top of the crema de fruta. my nephew is still learning the finer points of blowing a candle, so he enthusiastically provides more spit than “air.” HA HA HA

    ha.ha, i get it, i get it. so you hate frozen fruit salad πŸ˜€ (as a child, you would have flunked the marshmallow test like i would as an adult) πŸ˜›

    and about that crema de fruita with gelatin and spit on top, yeah, red ribbon makes a good one. goldilocks too.

    classic psych test to test patience (delay of gratification). a child is left with a marshmallow, with a promise of more marshmallows is she does not eat the marshmallow in front of her until the adult returns to the room. heck, i would grab and eat it even if the adult was still there! πŸ˜€

    ahhh, that's very interesting. but i don't think it really applies to this case. it's not that i can't wait for it to thaw. bad enough when it's frozen, it's even worse when it's thawed. it tastes different, a bit waxy, i don't know why.

    if you let it stay in the freezer too long, the fruit chunks dry out. i don't know why. you should finish the frozen salad within a couple of days max. (no need to remind us about that.) he.he.
