Orange Ambrosia

Orange Coconut Ambrosia is one of the beautiful simple fresh fruit dishes served at Hacienda del Desierto Bed & Breakfast as part of their continental plus breakfast. What is a continental plus breakfast anyway??? That means you get more than just coffee and a baked item. In our case there are hard boiled eggs from chickens raised on the Hacienda, David’s very popular home made granola as well as other whole grain cereals, a fresh or cooked fruit dish, coffee and a whole selection of herbal and caffeinated teas, several kinds of juice choices, and a freshed baked goodie of some kind. Keep reading our blogs as we’ll be adding recipes for many of our fruit and baked offerings.

6 large oranges peeled with all white pith cut away and seeds discarded
1/4 cup sugar
2 cups sweetened angel flake coconut
1/4 cup fresh orange juice

Directions: Arrange layer of orange sections in bottom of large bowl and sprinkle a little sugar and coconut on top. Repeat layers until ingredients are used up, ending with a layer of coconut. Drizzle orange juice over top, cover with plastic wrap and chill well. This dish can be chilled all night, ready for a very special breakfast. When chilled, place in an attractive dish. If you have a garden, choose an edible flower and herb to make your dish picture perfect.
