Fresh Fruit Salad With Cinnamon Sugar Chips – Low-Calorie

Fruit salad with cinnamon sugar chips make a great after school, or an anytime snack. This is also a great party dish to serve.

 

There’s nothing better in the summer than fresh fruit, especially when it’s hot and sticky outside. This fruit salad has so many delicious fruits including those that are at their peak right now. Strawberries and peaches are some of my favorite summer fruits so I had to be sure to incorporate them.

 

Strawberries are so good with their natural sweetness and peaches with their juiciness. I also added apples and grapes for a nice crunch. Adding the juice of the orange ties everything together giving the fruit salad a sweeter, citrusy flavor. I highly recommended using all fresh fruit when making this fruit salad as frozen or canned fruit won’t taste the same. 

 

What are the benefits of eating fresh fruit?

The fiber in fruit helps fill you up and keep your digestive system running smoothly. Fruits are high in fiber and potassium, and most are also good sources of vitamins A and C, folate.

Start by washing the fruit and cutting it all into bite sized pieces. Add all the fruit to a big bowl, sprinkle the fruit with cinnamon sugar, and pour in the freshly squeezed orange juice. Mix everything together thoroughly. Cover the bowl and keep in the fridge while making the cinnamon sugar chips. 

 

To make the chips, start by preheating the oven, so it’s ready to go once the chips are prepped. Using a pizza cutter, I cut each tortilla into 4 triangles. Once all the tortillas are cut up, I add the coconut oil in the microwave to melt it. I also mix up the cinnamon and sugar together in a small bowl. Lightly brush each side of of tortilla with coconut oil, then sprinkle them with the cinnamon sugar mix. Repeat until all tortillas are covered.

 

Lay the tortilla chips in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake for approximately 20 minutes, turning tortilla chips over halfway though. Once the tortilla chips are done cooking, let them cool, and the fruit salad and cinnamon sugar chips are ready to eat.

You can make fruit salad with any fresh fruit you may have on hand. My kids love it and it makes a great, healthy snack. It’s also a great after school snack. I did add a little cinnamon and sugar to the fruit salad, but you can eliminate if you’d like. I like to add it because the sugar macerates well with the orange juice. 

 

How do I store Fresh Fruit Salad?

Put the fruit salad in an airtight container and refrigerate. It’s best within a day, however properly stored, fresh fruit salad will last for about 3 to 5 days in the refrigerator.
