Mika Macaroni Fruit Salad

It's Christmas once again and the best part of Noche Buena(Christmas Eve) celebrations is always between gifts and food. Time to think of a good and decent gifts followed by a sumptuous food.

When it comes to tradition, the Noche Buena is the center of the celebration, a gathering of families, friends and love ones, that brings the family back together for another unforgettable, crazy, and nostalgic feast. Filipinos are fond of food. This is the most favorite part of the Filipino family, it is important that the special dishes are always present, aside from lechon, ham, steak, pasta, the simple salad with dressing are some of the signature menu and consider the ones who are coming over especially if there are any Balikbayans in the family.

Well, old and reliable menu handed down from generations to generations makes the whip in the kitchen, doing the splendorous magic in making the dishes, but for millennials the new stuff or the experimental dishes that we randomly saw on a food porn really attracts their palate.

Here's the Macaroni Fruit Salad prepared by my eldest daughter, Mikaela Francesca. According to her, this is the new way in preparing the salad.

Okey, let's try, right?


250 ml All-Purpose Cream
1 1/2 cup mayonnaise
300 ml Sweetened Condensed Milk 
1/2 teaspoon salt
400g elbow macaroni noodles
100 grams raisins
1 can Fruit Cocktail (drain the syrup)
2 8oz Nata de Coco (red & green)


  1. Cook macaroni noodles according to the package instructions. NOTE: Don't forget to put salt in a boiling water, just like we cook our pasta with our spaghetti. Drain and rinse with cold water. Set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the drain fruit cocktail, all-purpose cream, nata de coco and sweetened condensed milk. Stir well to combine.
  3. In a large bowl, add the remaining ingredients, including the elbow macaroni. Mix it all. Toss to combine.
  4. Refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving.
  5. You can add dice cheese on top and raisins too!

Side dishes like this, Macaroni Fruit Salad easy to prepare and go with everything! Great recipes for parties and birthdays too. A wonderful sweet, creamy, a bit of a tangy crunch (if you add apples)...a perfect combination of flavors for this Holiday!
