Recipe: Creamy fruit dessert

Recipe: Creamy fruit dessert

This creamy fruit dessert combines cream cheese, yogurt, oranges, peaches and pineapple.

Ounce for ounce, mandarin oranges have about 40 percent less vitamin C than oranges do, but they have nearly three times the vitamin A (carotene).


Directions

In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese, yogurt, sugar and vanilla. Using an electric mixer on high speed, beat until smooth.

In a separate bowl, combine the oranges, peaches and pineapple. Add the cream cheese mixture and fold together. Cover and refrigerate until well-chilled.

Transfer to a serving bowl or individual bowls. Garnish with shredded coconut and serve immediately.
