Recipe: Creamy fruit dessert

Dietitian's tip: Ounce for ounce, mandarin oranges have about 40 percent less vitamin C than oranges do, but they have nearly three times the vitamin A (carotenes).

Serves: 4

Ingredients

4 ounces fat-free cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup plain fat-free yogurt
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 can (11 ounces) mandarin oranges, drained
1 can (8.25 ounces) water-packed sliced peaches, drained
1 can (8 ounces) water-packed pineapple chunks, drained
4 tablespoons shredded coconut, toasted

Directions

In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese, yogurt, sugar and vanilla. Using an electric mixer on high speed, beat until smooth.

In a separate bowl, combine the oranges, peaches and pineapple. Add the cream cheese mixture and fold together. Cover and refrigerate until well chilled.

Transfer to a serving bowl or individual bowls. Garnish with shredded coconut and serve immediately.
