Tropical Mixed Fruit

Tropical Mixed Fruit

A colorful medley of kiwi, strawberries, pineapple, and peaches


6-8 servings


8 oz. strawberries (fresh or frozen, but the former preferrable)
4 kiwi
29 oz. canned peach slices in light syrup (drained)
15 oz. canned pinable bits in their own juices (keep juice)


1. Stem strawberries. Cut the strawberries in halves or quarters, depending on preference. Small garden strawberries need not be diced. Dump into a large bowl (preferrably one that has a lid).

2. Peel the kiwi with a knife, removing the fuzzy exterior skin. Slice into bite size pieces. Dump into the bowl with strawberries.

3. Add drained peaches to the fruit bowl. You may also slice the peach slices in half.

4. Add the pineapple tidbits and pineapple juice to the fuit bowl and gently stir and mix the fruit.

5. Refrigerate and serve cold.

Additional Notes: 

You may wish to add other fruit like mangos, oranges, apples, grapes, cherries, bananas, and so forth.

If you add bananas we suggest adding them just before serving. This way they will be slightly firm and will prevent browning.

Preparation Time: 

10 minutes

Tammy's Review: 

10/10 from me! This is my favorite way to eat a variety of fruit: bite-sized pieces, and in real fruit juice. This tastes as good as a dessert, but it's fruit! Yum! :)


Please see my review at the end of the recipe. Thanks! ~ Tammy


There are many, many combinations of fruit you can use but we enjoy the above. Bananas go well too if you add them fresh right before serving. This side dish gets an extra high score for side dishes because it has a great taste, is very pretty, and can be eaten as a snack, dessert, or as a side dish. The versatility earns it extra points and it has a flavor in which it can stand on its own. The picture above was enough to sell me on it!


Nothing makes a greater snack or side dish! I am always thrilled to see a bowl of fresh fruit when I go somewhere. :) So healthy and delicous, cut in bit-sized pieces that are convenient and fairly un-messy because you can eat them with a fork.


I really love this dish. It has the perfect blend of fruit, is pretty, and tastes amzsing! It's simple to make and is a healthy side!
