Orange Fruit Cups

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 

Gather Ingredients.

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.
