This colorful fruit salad may be made up to a day in advance if you add the banana just before serving. Fruit-sweetened desserts not only satisfy a sweet tooth, they’re full of health-promoting antioxidants. In this case, you’re better off opting for dessert!
Makes 4 servings
2 oranges, peeled and chopped
2 cups pineapple chunks
1 banana, sliced
1/4 cup unsweetened shredded dried coconut
2-4 tablespoons dried cranberries
1 tablespoon orange juice concentrate
1 tablespoon water
1/2 tsp almond extract (optional)
Combine the oranges, pineapple, banana, coconut, and cranberries in a medium bowl.
Combine the orange juice concentrate, water, and optional almond extract in a small bowl. Pour over the fruit and toss until evenly distributed.
Stored in a covered container in the refrigerator, leftover Ambrosia (without the banana) will keep for up to 2 days.
