Cinnamon-Coconut Fruit Salad

I love fruit 🙂 Once in a while I make a salad consisting mainly of some type of this delicacy. The other night I created this one. It’s sweet, but the seeds help to add another important flavor. I hope you enjoy this one as much as I did.

Three servings were made from the one salad, though one of the servings could have been split to make another. I had one serving as a snack, one as a side for the next days lunch, and the other for a side to that day’s dinner.

Cinnamon-Coconut Fruit Salad

Makes 3-4 servings.


1 apple, cored, and chopped into bite size pieces

1 orange, peeled, sectioned, and chopped into bite size pieces

1 (20 ounce) can pineapple chunks, 2 tablespoon of juice reserved (Use the rest in a smoothie.)

1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut

2 teaspoons sunflower seeds


  1. Combine the fruit in a medium size mixing bowl.
  2. Add the pineapple juice, unsweetened shredded coconut, and sunflower seeds and mix well.
  3. Divide the fruit salad between 3 or 4 bowls, and sprinkle each serving with cinnamon.


  • Nature’s Place makes an exceptional organic cinnamon. (No, they are not paying me to say this.)
  • Purchase store brand products when possible to save money.

Serving suggestions

  • Serve this alongside a salad of spinach, coleslaw mix, and sliced hard boiled eggs.
