Orange Coconut Salad (Low Calorie) Recipe

Sharing is caring!

This delicious and easy Orange Coconut Salad is one of my favorite low calorie sweets with fruit. So versatile, it works as a side, as dessert–breakfast in a pinch. Seriously yummy.

Make sure to check out my other recipes using oranges for that fun flavor that you’re looking for!

But let’s focus for a second on how yummy this awesome combination of oranges, coconut and greek yogurt–and no added sugar can be. Grab a large bowl, friends, because this one’s going to be tasty.

This recipe is very similar to Seafoam Salad!

Ideas to Make Your Fruit Salad Shine:

Look, I get it. Sometimes, you don’t want just navel oranges and a little coconut to get you through (just kidding, I love it just the way it comes, but whatever). So, I’ve come up with some mix-ins that you can add to your fruit dessert to change it up:

  • Whipped Cream
  • Crushed Pineapple
  • Maraschino Cherries
  • Marshmallows and Coconut Balls
  • Summer Berries
  • Nuts

Now, I like to put my fruit cocktail dessert recipe on ice cream or toss off a dollop of cool whip. But the deal is, even if you have a sweet tooth, this sweet treat is ready to serve just like it is.

Since I'm only one person, I am hoping I can use Halo's instead of Full Size Oranges. I have the coconut and Sour Cream, so I'm going to give it the old college try and use it as a side for my Kaula Pork and Sauteed Zucchini.
