This recipe is by Carlsbad Cravings.

- 1/2 medium cantaloupe, cubed (about 2 ½ cups)
- 1 pint fresh strawberries, halved
- 2 cups seedless red grapes
- 2 cups seedless green grapes
- 3 medium firm bananas, sliced
- 2 honey crisp apples, cubed
- 1/4 cup pulp free orange juice concentrate, thawed
- 1/2 3.4 oz. pkg. instant vanilla pudding mix (eyeball it)
- 2 tablespoons Powdered sugar
- 2 tablespoons sour cream
- 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice or more to taste
- In a large bowl, combine all of the fruit except for the bananas and apples. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Refrigerate your UNCUT bananas and apples separately.
- Meanwhile, add all of the Creamy Citrus Glaze ingredients to a medium bowl and whisk for 2 minute to activate/thicken the pudding mix. Cover and refrigerate.
- Just before serving, drain refrigerated fruit of any fruit juices that have accumulated then add bananas and apples. Stir in desired amount of Creamy Citrus Glaze – less for lighter glaze, more for creamier. The Glaze will be thick at first but thin as it mixes with the fruit juices.
- Fruits vary in sweet/tartness, so if you would like tangier/less sweet fruit, add additional lemon juice, for sweeter, sprinkle in additional powdered sugar. Serve immediately.
