Retro Recipe of the Week: Frozen Fruit Loaf (With 7-Up)

This week's retro recipe comes from "7-Up goes to a party!". Apparently, anything can be made using 7-Up. I cannot wait to make this "Frozen Fruit Loaf" for my first warm spring get-together.
This one of a set of two 7-Up cookbooks available here in my Etsy shop for only $4.00 (and yes, these can be shipped internationally for just a few bucks).
Ok, so you were expecting a 7-Up molded gelatin salad, but how about a 7-Up salad dressing or biscuits?
That's the Frozen Fruit Loaf on the little turquoise-y plate towards the top of the pic above. You can see it really well if you click on the pic to enlarge. I make you work for it, don't I?
Now for the recipe:

Frozen Fruit Loaf

1 3-ounce package cream cheese
1 9-ounce can crushed pineapple
1 7-ounce bottle 7-up
2 cups diced fresh peaches
1 cup diced seedless grapes
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 pint whipping cream
1 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows

Soften cream cheese and mix in pineapple. Stir in 7-Up. Sprinkle sugar over peaches and grapes and stir into mixture. Pour into a 2-Quart refrigerator dish and freeze until partially thickened. Whip cream until stiff; fold cream and marshmallows into fruit mixture. Freeze until solid. Makes 8-10 servings.
Sounds delicious, yes? And it's pretty too!

Some of those old recipes used the weirdest ingredients. And here I thought 7-Up was for punch!
