Frugal Recipe: Tropical Fruit Toss


Tropical Fruit Toss

I made this for my sister’s baby shower and it was really good! Fresh fruit is always a win for me! (Originally from Family Fun)

  • 2 navel oranges – and/or substitute with mangoes
  • 1/2 fresh pineapple
  • 1 banana
  • 1 kiwi (which was on sale last week!!)tropical-fruit-toss
  • 1/2 cup red seedless grapes – substitute with strawberries
  • 1 tablespoon or more each of sweetened coconut flakes, chopped macadamia nuts, and chocolate chips or chocolate or rainbow sprinkles

Step 1:

Peel and section one of the oranges. Cut each section in half, then add to a bowl. Wash the second orange and zest it into the bowl. Then cut it in half and squeeze the juice into the bowl. (If substituting with mangoes, just add lemon juice or pineapple juice to the fruit toss.)

Step 2:

Peel, core, and cut the pineapple into chunks (about 1-1/2 cups). Peel the banana and slice it into rounds. Peel the kiwi and cut it into 1-inch pieces. Add other fruit you have on hand.

Step 3:

Garnish each with coconut, macadamia nuts, chocolate chips or sprinkles. Serves 4.

    Love the idea of putting coconut in it- never tried that but it sounds really good!

      Thanks Jessica! I’ve eaten coconut in fruit for years. It doesn’t even have to be sweetened coconut, unsweetened has a good flavor when you have it with fruit.
