How to Make Frozen Cranberry Fruit Salad with Cool Whip

This Frozen Cranberry Salad is super easy to make. Start with beating some softened cream cheese with some sugar. I use a handheld mixer and it takes about a minute. Next, add a can of whole cranberries, chopped strawberries, crushed pineapple, pecans, and coconut. Mix it into the cream cheese mixture. Finally, carefully fold in some Cool Whip. Scoop the mixture into paper-lined regular muffin pans and freeze. To serve, remove the Frozen Cranberry Fruit Salad from the freezer about 10 minutes before eating.

  1. Stephanie,
    I hope you are feeling better after your surgery. I had that surgery years ago and the new techniques used today are way much better and the recovery time is very quick! These frozen salads look scrumptious and I'm for sure going to include these on our Thanksgiving table. Thank you for sharing your recipe.
