“Hell-o” Fruit Salad

I am giggling while I write that title because if you knew Jay’s mom you would understand why I love this very bubbly, caring and amazing person. Ellen is always super supportive of all my endeavors regardless of what I may be up to. She knows that I take very good care of her son and that normally means feeding him well. Since Ellen was born and grew up in the Philippians I am consistently exposed to new dishes that I would have never tried. Jay often misses his mom’s best dishes and Ellen does her best at sharing the recipes for me to re-create at home. Momma Ellen will always make the best but I am told my replications are pretty good. This is another one of her famous Philippines dishes. We shared it at our Super Bowl party and it was a hit.

Whenever Momma Ellen calls it is customary to say “Hell-o”


1/2 Can Condensed Sweetened Milk

1/2 Bar Cream Cheese

2 Big Cans Tropical Fruit Salad in Light Syrup

1 Big Can Sliced Peaches in Light Syrup

1 Small Can Little Oranges in Light Syrup

1 Jar Coconut Jelly (Find in Asian Store) Optional*

Start by draining all fruit very well. I placed it in a colander in the sink for 10 minutes. Place cream cheese and condensed milk in food processor or mixer and blend it together until smooth. Pour fruit in bowl and then pour milk mix on top. Mix it all together well and place in fridge for two hours before serving.

ENJOY!!!!!! Thanks Momma …
