You can make a delicious fruit salad that could pass as a buko (coconut meat) fruit salad, and at a cheaper price too. You can use gelatin as a substitute for buko because white gelatin when shredded looks exactly like a very soft coconut meat shredded for a fruit salad. No one would know it's actually gelatin and not coconut meat.
Here's what you're going to need:
1 sachet of white powder gelatin
1 can of fruit salad (or fresh fruits if you prefer them)
1 nestle cream
1 condensed milk in can
Heat the powder gelatin (follow label instructions) and shred them (like you would a buko fruit) once it's formed. Put all the ingredients together, and voila! you have a very economical and delicious gelatin fruit salad ala buko salad.
