Tropical Fruit Dessert
You’ll fall in love with this easy to make Tropical Fruit Dessert this summer! So cool and light, it’s perfect for entertaining on a hot day and only takes a few minutes to mix up!
I know – it’s another fru-fru fruit salad recipe, but with Memorial Day just around the corner, I’m guessing at least some of you out there have barbecues and other social events to attend. Maybe you have to take a side dish (or two) and need something easy to take along with you.
Any-whoo, this fun Tropical Fruit Dessert (salad?) is a fun recipe to have on hand. It’s just a little bit different from other fruit desserts I’ve tried: it’s just a little bit sweet from the peach pie filling and marshmallows, and just a little bit tart from the lemon jello and pineapple.
It’s seriously SO easy to throw together – all you need is just a little bit of refrigeration time.
My grandma called this simply “fruit dessert,” which really isn’t all that descriptive of a name…I’m not entirely sure Tropical Fruit Dessert is quite right, either, but this bright and cherry fruit bowl reminded me of a hot summer day.
And since a hot summer day reminds me of the tropics, ergo Tropic Fruit Dessert. Plus, pineapple and banana. 🍍🍌
So, if you need a quick and easy side-dish this summer, look no further: this Tropical Fruit Dessert has you covered!
- 21-ounce can peach pie filling
- 20-ounce can pineapple tidbits, drained

Interestingly enough, I didn’t grow up with an interest in cooking. In fact, I informed my mother on multiple occasions that I was not getting an advanced education so I could spend my evenings preparing meals.
