Fresh Fruit Salad / #TasteCreations

I love a fun picnic anytime of year! Do you? They are so fun in the fall, with falling leaves and the crisp autumn air, and I love them in the spring when everything is starting to bloom, and I can't wait to get outside after a long winter,  and or course they are a natural summer activity that I always look forward to. I have had a few winter picnics with friends and family and they are fun too, but there is a lot of hurrying to eat, and constantly stoking the fire to keep warm, and a lot of frozen toes. Fun but in moderation!
We are all about picnic foods at the #TasteCreations party today, so I brought a Fresh Fruit Salad, which is always a favorite! It takes pretty much no time to put together, and it has that great flavor and feeling that you can only get from fresh fruit! I hope you enjoy it! 


 Fresh Fruit Salad

 
 (printable recipe at end of post)
1 Banana
4 ounces Cherries
4 ounces Blueberries
6 ounces Strawberries
7 ounces Watermelon
1/2 cup Whipping Cream
1-2 tablespoons Confectioners Sugar

Wash the cherries and blueberries. Pull the stems off the cherries and get rid of the cherry pit with a cherry pitter. Slice the bananas. 
Slice the strawberries, and cube the watermelon. Make all the fruit bite sized pieces. Mix everything together.
Use a mixer to make the whipped cream. Add the sugar sparingly, tasting after adding some until you are happy with the level of sweetness.
Add whipped cream to bowl and mix together. You might not need all of the whipped cream, so add a little at a time until you are happy with it.
Simple, quick and tasty Fresh Fruit Salad!
