These bright and cheery fruit cups can easily be varied by filling them with different fruits. Let your imagination and taste buds guide you.
Makes 4 servings
2 small oranges, cut in half crosswise
½ cup blueberries, fresh or frozen (unsweetened)
½ cup canned crushed pineapple (packed in juice), drained
1 teaspoon confectioners' sugar
Carefully cut out orange pulp, using a small, sharp knife. Leave the shells intact.
Remove and discard white membranes. (For a fancy touch, you can scallop the edges of the orange halves with a sharp knife.)
In a small bowl, combine orange sections with blueberries and pineapple. Chill at least 1 hour. Cover orange shells and chill them separately.
To serve, pile fruit mixture into orange shells. (If necessary, slice a very thin slice off the bottom of each orange half to keep it from tipping over.)
Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar and serve right away.
