Healthier Apple Ambrosia

This is a great way to enjoy some fruity dessert without feeling the guilt of the extra calories.  It’s a wonderful combination of fresh fruit, orange juice and coconut.  If you feel the need or your fruit is not very sweet, go ahead and add the sugar.  Otherwise, enjoy it without.  Either way, this is a great treat.  Enjoy!

-3 large ripe apples (Gala, Red Delicious, Pink Lady or other types)
-1 cup orange juice
-1 (8 oz) can pineapple tidbits, with juice
-1/2 cup sweetened coconut flakes
-1/4 cup sugar, optional
Peel and core the apples.  Grate them into a large bowl, using the large-hole side of the grater.  Add the rest of the ingredients, including sugar, if using.  Stir well, cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.  Scoop into serving dishes.  Enjoy!
