This refreshing and simple Fruit Salad recipe is made with fresh and vibrant fruits and hints of orange and mint. It’s healthy and contains no added sugar!

Fruit salad served in a bowl.

What I love about this homemade fruit salad:

  • Simple to make and takes seconds to throw together!
  • Healthy and guilt free! High in fiber and incredible flavor without the heavy syrups or added sugar!
  • Easy to customize! Swap out any of these fruits for your favorites!

How to make Fresh Fruit Salad:

  1. Combine fresh fruit (except the raspberries) in a large bowl.
  2. Add chopped mint leaves (optional).
  3. Zest orange over the bowl and squeeze some orange juice on top.
  4. Add raspberries.
  5. Serve immediately.

How do you keep it from turning brown?

Keep your fruit from browning by choosing fruits that don’t brown easily. If you choose fruits that do brown (like apples or pears), toss them in lemon juice and add them to the salad just before serving. If you use bananas, slice and add to the top just before serving.

Make Ahead and Freezing Instructions:

To Make Ahead: I like to store each type of chopped fruit separate bags, then combine just before serving. Don’t add the orange juice until you’re ready to serve.

To Freeze: Since freezing fruit alters the texture when it thaws, we do not recommend freezing and thawing fruit salad. You can freeze this fruit and use it in a smoothie for another day!

Recipe Variations:

Swap out any of the fresh fruits for your favorites or the ones that are in season to enjoy all year!

  • 1 orange (for juice and zest–I don’t use the whole thing, just to taste)

Instructions
