This is an easy, quick dessert to whip up! It is a crossover, if you are following THM.. But, it is great for a special weekend dessert or for company. I will post the large size recipe first, then for your convenience, I will also give you the amounts for a 1/4 size recipe. I am figuring a serving to be 1/2 – 3/4 cup.
Fruit Cocktail Salad (Large family or company size recipe)
12 cans fruit cocktail, in 100% juice, drained (I let the kids drink the juice)
2 cups water
1/4 cup beef gelatin
2/3 cups Pyure (or honey, if you are not following THM, or just making it for your family)
16 ounces cream cheese
1/4 cup coconut oil
2 cups cream, whipped
1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts, optional
Open the fruit cocktail and drain them.
Boil the water and stir in the gelatin.
Beat the cream cheese, coconut oil and sweetener. Continue to beat as you pour the gelatin slowly in.
Whip the cream. Mix gently into the cream cheese and gelatin.
Stir in the fruit cocktail. Set it in the refrigerator to chill for several hours and to let the gelatin set up.
Before serving, top with the walnuts, if using. Another option is to set the nuts aside and let people top or not top their bowl with nuts as desired.
Fruit Cocktail (Smaller family recipe)

1/2 cup water
1 Tablespoon gelatin
2 1/2 Tablespoons Pyure
4 ounces cream cheese
1 Tablespoon coconut oil
1/2 cup cream whipped
6 Tablespoons chopped walnuts, optional
Same as above.
