This originally was published about 2 years ago as a guest post, but I think that blog is now defunct. Plus, my photography has improved so much I wanted to share it again this year.
Do you have family recipes that just take you back? I definitely do. Heavenly Hashis probably one of my favorites. It reminds me of being a kid and heading over to my grandma and grandpa’s house. Their house always smelled so nice. It was like the scent of Dove soap. I think she put it in the linen closet.
This was one of the hallmark’s of our Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. It just wasn’t the same without it. Everyone would ask where it was.
When my mom started hosting holiday meals at our house with her side of the family, we served Heavenly Has. And, this was one of the first things I learned how to make.
Make sure to drain the fruit really well. Then add the marshmallows to the fruit. Gently fold in the whipped cream.
Before I put it in the fridge, I transfer it to the serving bowl. Then, pull it out when you’re ready to serve!

This delicious fruit salad is just so easy to make. You can make it a day ahead of time to let the fruit juices mix together with the whipped cream, but it also takes great if you just whipped it up before setting it on the table.
