Pina Colada Fruit Salad
Yields 10 servings
1/2 cup cream of coconut
1/4 cup pineapple juice
2 cups strawberries sliced
4 clementine oranges peeled and sectioned
4 bananas sliced
1 1/2 cups blueberries
3/4 cup sweetened shredded coconut more or less to taste
Whisk the cream of coconut and pineapple juice together in a medium bowl. Set aside.
If serving immediately: Add all of the fruit to a large bowl. Add cream of coconut/pineapple mixture and coconut and toss to evenly combine.
If making ahead: Add all of the fruit to a large bowl EXCEPT bananas. Keep fruit bowl and cream of coconut mixture separate and cover each with plastic wrap and refrigerate. Before serving, drain any excess liquid from the fruit, then add bananas, coconut and cream of coconut mixture and toss to evenly combine.
*Cream of coconut is NOT coconut cream. It's a sweetened coconut cream. You can find it with the mixers at your local grocery store. It is a very common ingredient so if you can’t find it then be sure to ask for some help.
