Fruit salad in an orange bowl

This is a cute and decorative idea for serving a light fruit salad to guests at a party or as a snack at home.  It is very easy and does not require a great amount of preparation.  I used kiwis, red grapes, watermelon, blackberries, cantaloupe, and unsweetened coconut for a tropical flair.  This recipe yields 2 servings at approximately 190 calories per serving depending on the variety of fruit used.

Fresh fruit salad in an orange bowl
2 large oranges
2 kiwi, cut into slices and quartered
1 cup of assorted chopped fresh fruits including:
Red grapes
green grapes

Shredded unsweetened coconut
1 teaspoon honey, or according to taste
Fresh mint leaves for garnish

Slice the top off of both of the oranges.

Remove the pulp from each orange and place the orange sections with the other chopped fruit in a separate bowl.

Slice the kiwi into individual slices and then quarter.

Combine all of the fruit in a bowl and add a few sprinkles of shredded unsweetened coconut.  Add 1 teaspoon of honey, or according to taste.  Stir until combined.

Slice the bottom of each orange so it is level and can be used as a fruit bowl.  Add the fresh fruit mixture equally to each orange and garnish with fresh mint leaves.
