Does anyone know how to make that cream that lebanese people put in fruit salads???

It is driving me crazy that the owner of the place does not want to give the recipe..... I just love that cream and I cannot find how to make it anywhere... It looks like thick milk but kinda jelly. Thanks!

Hi and welcome to DC...Make yourself at home...

So the "cream' you are asking about is kinda like a sauce...maybe like custard?
What does it taste like..?

Do you think this is a yogurt-based sauce or cream?

Could be cream cheese or sour cream based sauce.

I bet it's made out of yogurt. Sometimes I just use a vanilla yogurt on my fruit salad. I like a squeeze of lime in mine too! This may be like asking "does anyone have a recipe for that red sauce Italians serve on pasta"?

Yep, yep, yep. I add lime juice & a little honey to my yogurt for fruit salad:

Don't forget to add the macadamia nuts.

Welcome to DC!! It is probably yoghurt with honey and maybe a couple of drops of orange blossom or rosewater essence. OR maybe cinnamon instead of the essence. Also possible that he doesn't want to share the recipe cos it isn't home made!

I make a fruit salad with fresh and canned fruit like apples, pineapple, mandarin oranges, bananas and any other fresh fruit I might have then I mix it with a couple containers of Yoplait Lemon Burst Yoqurt. It's really, really good. Try it you will like it.

jpmcgrew - I have also used the apple pie yogurt as a topping - YUM!

*amy* - macadamia nuts are horrendously expensive for the rest of us not living in California! I'm so jealous!!!!!!!
