A Refreshing Fruit Salad - Coconut Salad with Strawberries, Apples, and Bananas
Coconut fruit is a favorite fruit in tropical areas due to the fact they are locations that tend to be where there are lots of growing coconuts. Coconut fruit is great for a healthy fruit snack as it has many health benefits for the body. The Coconut is highly nutritious and rich in fiber, vitamins, and minerals as well as being a traditional medicine to alleviate many common problems. When preparing to make Coconut Fruit Salad don't forget to take advantage of opening up a coconut and drink the juice inside which is a very healthy drink.
One of my favorite desserts that is made out of coconut fruit is called Coconut Salad also called a Buko Salad in the Philippines. A fruity dessert that is easy to make, tasty and nutritious and is not too bad if your on a budget, but want a unique and refreshing fruit salad to entertain your friends with. This is great to serve for any spring or summer BBQ with friends and family, make a big bowl and let your guests dish up a bowl of this sweet salad.
