2 cans Tropical Fruit
1/2 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
1/4 cup Powdered Sugar
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla
Drain canned fruit. If time permits, let it sit in the drainer, over a bowl, in the fridge to get as much juice out as possible. Slice bananas. Cut apple into chunks. Cut peel off orange, then cut segments into chunks. Toss all the fruits together and set aside (still in the drainer over a bowl so juice can keep running off… you don’t want it to break down the whip cream and make runny salad). Cut the "meat" out of the coconut shell and use a grater to shred it. Set aside.
Pour cream into a chilled bowl, add powdered sugar and vanilla. Whip until stiff peaks form. (You can use an electric mixer to make quick work of this task. If you don’t have a mixer, use a whisk and place the bowl inside a larger bowl filled with ice and start whipping! It’ll take 5-10 minutes… enlist the help of anyone who plans to eat the fruit salad!). Mix the fruit in with whip cream, plus some shredded coconut, just before serving. Sprinkle the top with additional coconut.
