The tropical fruit is totally delicious but the pina colada dressing is what makes this Pina Colada Tropical Fruit Salad so amazing. I combined frozen limeade (inspired by my Lemonade Fruit Salad) and Cream of Coconut to make the dressing. The limeade balances out the sweetness of the cream of coconut.
How do you stop a fruit salad from going brown?
Some fruits such as bananas, pears, and apples will begin to brown once they are cut and exposed to air. The acid in the limeade used in the pina colada dressing helps to slow that process down. Just toss your fruit in the dressing and it should last all afternoon. I still like to add the bananas at the last minute so they will look their best when they are served.
Cream of coconut is what gives the dressing that pina colada flavor. If you’ve never had cream of coconut it is different than coconut cream. Cream of coconut is a super sweetened coconut cream similar to sweetened condensed milk. It is most often used in pina coladas, and I also use in my the BEST Coconut Cake You’ll Ever Make, Coconut Mango Cupcakes, and Pina Colada Cake Bites.
There is no right or wrong way to make Pina Colada Tropical Fruit Salad so don’t feel like you can only use the fruits we listed. Feel free to add your favorite fruits including strawberries, blueberries, grapes, etc. I’m not so sure about watermelon or cantaloupe in this mix but if you try it and like it let us know!
