Yes, it's okay to choose both.lol!Even myself, I always love ice cream and fruit salad both. I eat almost all the flavor of ice cream well, except for chocolate flavor because my stomach cannot stand the taste of chocolate. Both are refreshing anyway. Happy mylotting!

I like smoothies. The best of both worlds. You can mix and match so many different fruits and get the cold feeling like ice cream. I do like an ice cream cone every now and then too!

Hello, Yes, I do agree with you, smoothies are great especially fruit smoothies my favorites include banana and strawberry smoothies. I love fruit shake and carrot shake too, it really help cool my mind and ease boredom.

I have never had a carrot shake? Do you make it like it sounds, carrots and ice cream? Interesting idea!

Well, when it comes to a choice between Ice Cream and Fruit salad, I prefer the Fruit Salad more often because that is the healthier of the choices for sure. I can eat fruit without the added stuff for sure and enjoy it anytime. Ice Cream is not really the best for me anyways since I am Diabetic but occassionally will find myself enjoying a little bit if I need some.

You have an excellent and healthy choice. Fruit salad is really the best especially if you prepare it yourself. I like my fruit salad with peach, melon, apple and strawberry with milk and an all purpose cream.

there would be no choice for me as i tend to have both! . honestly, with the two in front of me, i would prefer to get a serving (make that two or three, hahahaha), of the fruit salad. in the first place, fruit salads are specially prepared and are not common. i would prefer to have it rather than ice cream which is easily sourced and commonly taken if u desire to eat it. it is just sad not to have fruit salads often because of the time one needs to prepare and its cost compared to ice cream. well, if faced with the reality of having both on the table ... hmmm, maybe i would change my mind and have both,hahahahaha. (on the other hand, the third choice would be myself surpassing the boundary and get to be diabetic ... i am now careful with sweets).

Yes, you are right, fruit salad is much tastier and nutritious. It is also more delicious when we have to prepare personally rather than buy the finished product. Ice cream is ready to eat.

Yes, fruit salad is very healthy and nutritious plus it is very delicious, but when you want to cool down and refreshed during summer, I think ice cream is a popular choice among people. I love ice cream too but when there's a choice in the table, I will go for fruit salad.

I prefer fruits, as I like the natural products which contain less sugar, I don't want to be fat. But I like ice-cream and also take it, but not very often, just when the weather is too hot.

Hello!I do agree with you, ice cream is nothing but fats and cholesterol, health experts even warned us not to indulge in ice cream too much. Fruit salad contains fats also because of the creams and milk ingredients but it is more nutritious and healthy because of the fruits combination, it won't shoot up weight gains.

I love icecream all year round so I am biased hehe. Fruit salad is something I only eat when there's an occasion or party. I definitely prefer ice cream. :D

That's great!just last night I eat Ice cream with my board mates-double dutch flavor-hehe. Ice cream is a lot easier because we won't make effort to prepare the ingredients not like in fruit salad that it takes time, oh well, unless you buy a ready made salad.

I really do like ice cream, but it is a pleasure that I seldom partake in. But, in the summer when the fruit is fresh I will eat fruit salad every single day. I love the taste of fresh fruit and it is good for you as well. My favorite fruit salad is the melon salad with watermelon, cantalope and honeydew in it. But, I will eat almost any fruit as long as it is fresh. It's too bad that it is past the peak season for fruit now, because that sounds really good right about now.

I love cantaloupe and honeydew too!Oh gosh they are extraordinarily yummy and sweet. I even prefer a juice extracted from honeydew. Melon salad is the best, just last night I eat fresh melon in my room because of the hot weather temperature in our place.

Both fruit salad and ice cream are good choices in summer. Personally speaking, I prefer ice cream to fruit salad. I usually buy some ice cream in the supermarket and store them in the refrigerator. Every time I come back home, I could enjoy them at once. It is true that fruit salad is more healthy than ice cream. But it doesn't mean you could enjoy fruit salad without limit. Whatever you eat and drink, one thing is certain: Don't enjoy too much!

Wow that's good that you can buy ice cream from the supermarket and store them in a refrigerator. You know I always dream this kind of grocery preparation, but as much as I wanted to do things like this, I cannot no matter how I tried, because my voracious board mates cannot keep out an eye from the fringe, of course it's pretty unethical if I refused them if they ask.

Both, anything thats in the ref too. But I prefer salad as its not only more healthy, but cheaper to compared to ice cream (i think). Eventhough ice creams are ready to eat, i still want to prepare my fruit salad. Have to cut the sugar more when making it. And my appetite for ice creams are not the way it is when I'm still younger (the sugar thing).

Yes, fruit salad is more healthy than other creamy and starchy foods. It also a lot cheaper than ice cream and other refreshment, provided you do the preparation and not the one you buy in the restaurant or refreshment parlor.

I love ice creams! So i'll choose ice cream. haha.. Maybe I'll just put some fresh fruits on top of my scooped ice cream to make it healthier. And top it off with a cherry! But of course, fruit salad is very refreshing. i like that too! Healthy and yummy!

Ice cream with toppings is excellent and I always craved for fruit toppings especially peaches and strawberry. But sometimes, if I really want to eat ice cream right away, I forget to put toppings.lol!

I like both. ice-cream, especially ice-cream float, is my favorite when the weather is extremely hot and tends to wear you down. Since I take fruit practically everyday, there is no such craving for fruits. I prefer fruits than fruit salad or fruit juice.

Yes, fresh fruits are wonderful and they taste good when eaten without a whipping cream. Ice cream float is also one of the best.

I like Ice cream too as a perfect summer treat. But I avoid a chocolate flavor because my appetite cannot stand chocolates because of its after-taste and the seem-like bitter flavor.

Actually there are people really who cannot stand with cold foods like ice cream and halo halo. Well, my stomach also is like that, that's why I have some limitations with ice cream eating and just prefer fruit salad without pineapple as my refreshment during summer.

Hello! I like your choices, fruit salad is wonderful and halo halo. Ice cream is great I go with any flavors except for chocolates because I don't eat chocolates, my throat will be easily irritated with chocolates so I avoided it as much as possible. Fruit salad is great but I would prefer not to include Pineapple because my stomach cannot stand its too much acid.
