Watergate Salad - Healthier Version

Watergate Salad - Healthier Version

1 small package pistachio instant pudding mix (3 to 3-1/2 oz)
1 20-oz can crushed unsweetened pineapple, well drained (reserve juice)
1 16-oz can lite fruit ****tail, drained
1 cup miniature marshmallows
1 large banana, chopped into 1/2" cubes
1 cup walnut pieces, finely chopped
1 cup reserved pineapple juice
1 8-oz container reduced-fat whipped topping, such as Cool Whip (2 cups),

Drain the pineapple, reserving the juice. Drain the fruit ****tail
separately, reserving juice for some other use. Mix the fruit and the marshmallows in a large bowl. Chop the banana into 1/2 inch cubes and stir into the canned fruit mixture. Chop the walnuts fairly fine and add to the fruit.

Place 1 cup of the reserved pineapple juice in another bowl. If there's less than 1 cup, add enough fruit ****tail juice to make a cup. Whisk the pudding mix into the juice. When thoroughly mixed, add to the fruit and stir gently to mix. Fold in the whipped topping. Refrigerate for at least an hour for dessert to set and flavors to meld.

Makes about 8 cups, or ten 3/4 cup servings. (Ha! Lots of luck limiting it to this size serving). This dessert will keep in the refrigerator for two days. If you will need to keep it a third day, leave out the banana. You can stretch it nicely and cheaply for more servings for a crowd by adding one or two more bananas, and/or another cup of marshmallows.
