This has to be a family classic and great for holidays and a family get together. I remember eating this as a child and thought it was so good, I couldn’t wait to finish dinner to get some of this dessert.



  • 5 medium bananas
  • 2 (15 oz) cans fruit cocktail
  • 1 medium apple
  • 1 (15 oz) can pear halves
  • 1/2 cup pecans
  • 1 (11 oz) can mandarin orange
  • 1 (15 oz) can peaches
  • 2 (8 oz) cans crushed pineapple
  • 1 (10 oz) jar maraschino cherries
  • 2 (14 oz) cans sweetened condensed milk


Step 1

Slice bananas into bite size slices. Peel apple and cut into bite size pieces.

Step 2

Drain fruit cocktail, oranges, and pineapple. Drain pears and peaches and slice.

Step 3

Combine all fruits into a bowl and mix with the 2 cans of the sweetened condensed milk.

Step 4

Halve as many cherries as you want and add to the "pot"

Step 5

Then add some of the maraschino juice to make it pink or use a pack of Kool Aid to change the color. Refrigerate immediately and stir before serving.
