Refreshing Coconut Fruit Salad

This is a wonderful fruit salad recipe that I made up a while back. I call it "refreshing" because it is still creamy but doesn't have a ton of sugar and marshmallow cream in it. The toasted coconut heightens the flavor while the untoasted gives a nice chewy texture to the whole thing. For an extra creamy salad, add 1/4 cup fruit yogurt.

Directions

  1. Mix apples, oranges, pineapple, and banana in a large bowl. Add toasted* and untoasted coconut, along with coconut milk.
  2. To soften the cream cheese, zap it in the microwave for about 5-10 seconds. With a fork in a small bowl, cream the cheese with the sugar, add more if desired to taste.
  3. Dump the cream cheese on top of the fruit, and mix thoroughly to incorporate. Serve at room temperature or chilled.
  4. * To toast the coconut, spread on an ungreased pan and bake in a 300 degree oven just till lightly brown, around 3-5 minutes.
