We make fruit salad a lot! Even when we have nothing else to eat in the house, we can usually find some leftover fruit, some frozen or even canned fruit! But once in a while, we’ll make some citrus dressing using this recipe, and then pour it on the fruit salad! It’s always a hit when we bring it to potlucks!
Here’s our Fruit Salad with Citrus Dressing Recipe.
We defrosted a few strawberries, sliced some Oranges, and kiwi.
- one banana
- 1/4 cup coconut milk
- 1 orange
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
We blended up all the dressing ingredients (including the banana) in a blender or food processor and poured it over our fruit. It was really delicious. It made a perfect dressing. By pureeing it less and leaving it a little chunky, it could also be used as a fruit dip. I almost didn’t let my kids have some of this because I liked it so much. But since I want them to eat more fruit, I gave in.
Using the banana as a base for our salad dressing is a great idea for those kids who don’t like the texture of bananas. Bananas have great nutrients to help with
- controlling blood pressure.
- Strengthening bones.
- protecting your heart.
- Preventing diarrhea.
