Fabulous Fruit Salad

This is a simple fruit salad with a wonderful sweetness. I got the idea from Jason's Grandma.


8 oz can pineapple tidbits
11 oz can mandarin oranges
15.25 oz can Bartlett pears
15 oz can peaches
10 strawberries
2 kiwis
1 banana (I didn't add this because the store was out)
1/4 cup reserved fruit juice
1/3 to 1/2 package of pudding mix (i usually use french vanilla, but they were out, so I tried cheesecake and it was can always use other flavors, such as banana cream)


Drain (but reserve some of the juice) all the canned fruits and chop all the fruit. Combine fruit in a bowl with about 1/4 cup reserved fruit juice (I used some of the pineapple juice). Mix in the pudding and mix until well combined. Add more fruit juice if you feel it needs more. Let is hang out in the frig a few hours before serving. If you want to make it even better you can serve the fruit salad with some whipped cream on top!
