Servings 6 servings


  • 8 ounces frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 1 medium banana chopped
  • 20 ounces can crushed pineapple drained
  • 1 cup frozen Daybreak Blend, thawed I use WaWona Organic Daybreak Blend from Costco
  • 1 cup marshmallows I used regular but you can use Tutti Fruity too
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/2 tsp butter


  • Set the whipped cream and frozen fruit on the counter and let thaw. You could also do this overnight in the refrigerator. Once the items have thawed make sure to drain the frozen fruit as it may have water in the bottom.
  • Next open the can of crushed pineapple and drain that too. You don't want it making your salad runny.
  • In a medium sized bowl add the fruit, pineapple, whipped cream, chopped banana and marshmallows. Mix to combine all the ingredients.
  • In a small pan on the stove over medium heat melt 1/2 tsp of butter. Add the coconut and toast for 2-3 minutes. Take off the stove and let cool.
  • Sprinkle the coconut on top of the salad. Enjoy!
