Frozen Cranberry Salad - This frosty salad is an explosion of cranberry flavor! With pineapple chunks and loads of sweet cool whip, it's a must try dessert that's especially popular for the holidays.


  • 1 can (20 ounce) pineapple chunks, drained
  • 5 bananas, halved and sliced
  • 1 can (16 ounce) whole-berry cranberry sauce
  • 1 ½ cups mini marshmallows
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 12 ounce cool whip


  1. In large bowl, combine cranberry sauce with sugar. Add bananas, pineapple and marshmallows. Fold in cool whip. Pour into glass 13x9 baking dish.
  2. Cover and freeze until solid (about 6-8 hours). Can be made several days in advance. If leftovers, cover and put back in freezer, keeps for several weeks!


  • Freeze into single servings: As an alternative you could spoon the fruit and cool whip mixture into muffin tins or ramekins to make single serve blocks–no slicing required.
  • Substitute for mini marshmallows: If you only have full sized marshmallows, you can still make this salad. Chop the marshmallows into small chunks then proceed with the recipe as directed.
  • Additions: For a frozen cranberry salad with some crunch, add a handful of chopped pecans along with the pineapple and bananas.
