Monday Munchies: Pina Colada Fruit Salad

pina colada fruit salad_edited-1

I threw this fruit salad (recipe originally from one of my MoM friends, Tenille) together on Friday morning, thinking it would be a tasty treat for us over Easter weekend.  Bo and Clara weren’t fans (Bo thought the coconut was cheese and didn’t like that… apparently he doesn’t like coconut right now), but Anna loved it.  She loved it so much that she put her whole hand in the syrupy-juice that was left on her plate, splashed around in it a bit, and then licked her hand thoroughly.  Let’s just say I think she’s still sticky…

I think it is mighty tasty and a great spring/summer fruit salad.  This recipe makes a huge batch and would be perfect for a cookout!  The secret ingredient is the almond extract!  🙂

Pina Colada Fruit Salad

  • 1 – 16 oz can pineapple chunks (or fresh pineapple, cubed)
  • 1.5 cups green grapes
  • 1.5 cups purple grapes
  • 1.5 cups strawberries
  • 1.5 cups blueberries
  • 1/2 cup raspberries
  • 1 can non-alcoholic pina colada mix, thawed
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup sugar (can substitute agave, honey, or splenda – however, the pina colada mix does have sugar)
  • 1/4 tsp. almond extract
  • 1/4 tsp. coconut extract
  • 1/4 cup coconut flakes (optional)

In a large bowl, quarter strawberries and grapes.  In a separate bowl, combine pina colada mix, orange juice, sugar, and extracts.  Pour over fruit and combine.  Sprinkle with coconut flakes. Delish.

Each Monday, I’ll showcase a family and kid-friendly recipe to share with your family.  Please let me know if you try one of my recipes! Enjoy!
