50/50 Fruit Salad (Or Fruit Dip)

Remember those 50/50 orange-and-cream bars? They were the inspiration for this recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 1 package (1.4 ounces) sugar-free and fat-free instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 1/2 cups low-fat milk
  • 5 tablespoons frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
  • 1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
  • 2 cups melon cubes or balls (honeydew, cantaloupe, watermelon, etc.)
  • 2 bananas, sliced
  • 2 apples, cored and sliced
  • 2 oranges, peeled and broken into segments
  • 2 peaches, nectarines or pears, cored and sliced

Preparation:
1. Put pudding mix, milk, and orange juice concentrate in mixing bowl and beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Beat in or mix in sour cream.
2. Serve the orange dip with prepared fruit. Or make a dressed fruit salad by adding all the fruits to a large serving bowl. Pour orange dressing over the top and toss gently to blend. Serve immediately, or cover and keep in refrigerator until ready to serve.

8-10 cups of fruit salad
