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.

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.

If you have a garden, choose an edible flower and herb to make your dish picture perfect.
