Fruit Cream which is not just cream

I am definitely not a fruit lover. In fact my fruits can rest safely in my fridge for a long time before even being noticed  (leave apart eating). But my husband likes them and knowing that they are very nutritious I try to give them to my son too. So I normally don’t easily consider making any fruit salad or dessert. No wonder I had never made fruit cream before this one. Though I have had it a few times earlier and I quite liked it.

A super tasty version of a regular frut cream. The cream cheese and sour cream give it a different level.

But the recipe was pretty obvious and I didn’t consider trying it, until I found this recipe for grape salad which was a mix of sour cream and cream cheese, nuts  and sugar. I liked the Idea and adapted it for a fruit cream. I made it when I had some friends coming in for dinner they loved it in fact my friend asked for the recipe too.

It is a really a very quick no cooking recipe and you are sure to be pleased by the output. I am not a fan of too sweet desserts and that’s why the sour hint of sour cream and cream cheese was just right too balance it becoming too sweet.

Ingredients for the cream are not many but might not always be readily available so you might want to shop. Needless to say that you may use any fruits of your choice,  just avoid the ones that are watery and try to maintain the same proportion. Also feed free to use the nuts of your choice if you are using softer ones like cashew and pecan or almonds you may use them as is but in case you are using almonds just roast them for a softer texture. Also I suggest making this recipe a night before or at least 6 hours in advance which will help the flavors to soak in and mature. I think that all I wanted you guys to know about the recipe before we get started with the recipe.
