Fruit Salad with Icecream - Summer special

Share with friends and family

 Fruit salad with icecream is a delicacy and a perfect summer treat that is enjoyed by all . This is the best way to get kids eat the fruits by tempting with a scoop of ice cream . A very easy to make dessert with no cooking and stirring  at all. More so, there is no particular hard and fast recipe,we can add whatever fruits we like or have on hand and customize as per our wish .

If you would like to enjoy a guilt free  fresh fruit  indulgence, then you must definitely try the Fruit Chaat / Fruit bowl recipe on my blog. 

Fruit salad with icecream was a very pricey and prestigious dessert during my childhood days . I am sure the 80s kids will have an emotional connect with this yummy and tasty dessert . It used to feature on the menu of famous restaurants and on the occasional visit we would all crave for this and if lucky our parents would give in to the demands and treat us . I was lucky a few times to be privileged to enjoy this lipsmacking dessert at my favorite restaurant as a child . Also if we attended wedding reception during summer, the dinner buffet will always serve fruit salad with icecream for dessert .

Vanilla ice cream tastes best with this fruit salad or in summers you can top it with mango ice cream, but my personal favorite is vanilla icecream drizzled with some rose syrup . 

You can also use home made icecream of your choice . To make a creamy home made ice cream  check Priya's chocolate ice cream.

Preparation Time - 10 mins
