02 Apr Supremed Citrus Ambrosia
Supremed Citrus Ambrosia
- 1 Navel orange
- 1 Cara Cara orange*
- 1 Blood Orange*
- 1 pink grapefruit
- ½ cup nonfat Greek yogurt**
- 2 teaspoons honey**
- 1/2 cup toasted pecans or walnuts
- 1/2 cup shredded un-sweetened coconut flakes (or if you like things sweet, go with the sweetened)
- 1/2 cup mini vegan marshmallows
Supreme your citrus
- This is a fancy term for segmenting. You’re going to get the beautiful flesh of the oranges without the membrane or skin getting in the way (think those canned mandarin oranges, only 1000x better).
- Cut the top and bottom off your citrus so you have a flat surface on each side and you can clearly see the flesh without the pith.
- With one flat side of your citrus on the cutting board, cut from the top to the bottom along the curve on outside of the citrus (not straight down), cutting off the peel and pith so all you see is the fruit inside. If you miss some pith, don’t worry you can clean it off with a quick flick of the blade.
- Take the cleaned fruit in the palm of your non-dominant hand and then carefully cut the segments out in-between the visible dividers (the membrane).
- Repeat for all of your citrus.
- Here's a little video if you need more help: How to Segment Citrus (by me!)
- (This step can been done up to one day ahead of time, store in the fridge in an airtight container, preferably one that lets the juices drip away from the segments like in a salad spinner)
Putting it all together
- In a mixing bowl, whisk together the Greek yogurt and honey until combined. Add your supremed citrus, marshmallows, coconut, and nuts and gently toss to coat everything in the honeyed yogurt. Serve immediately.
- *If you can't find all the specific citrus, just pick your favorite variety, trying to mix up the colors and sizes if possible.
- **Vegans: Try So Delicious's Coconut Greek Yogurt, or Follow Your Heart's Vegan Sour Cream, and replace the honey with your favorite sweetener
