  • 2 apples, diced

  • 6 oranges, supremed (sectioned)
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans

  • 1 teaspoon mustard powder

My grandmother's original recipe called for marshmallows, butter, eggs, and cream. This is a much healthier version with all the flavor!


1. Combine fruit in a mixing bowl and refrigerate.
2. Remove solid coconut cream and put in a mixing bowl. Discard remaining liquid.
3. Add remaining ingredients, except nuts, and whip with a hand mixer until soft peaks form.
4. When ready to serve, pour off any liquid from fruit and stir in nuts and whipped cream mixture.
