Come y Bebe (Ecuadorian Fruit Salad)#EattheWorld

Come y bebe, which translates to “eat and drink”, is an Ecuadorian fruit salad made with fresh diced fruits and orange juice. You can eat it with a spoon or drink it straight from a glass, it’s perfect as a breakfast, snack, and even dessert. It's delicious and so easy to make, this is a very refreshing drink or dessert for the summer!
You can customize it however you’d like, just use your favorite combo of fruits: mango, pineapple, oranges, mango, berries, banana or papaya. The riper the fruit, the sweeter the Come y Bebe will be.
You also have the option of adding a sweetener, but I left it out as my fruit were sweet and the juice of oranges were sugar-sweet. I also topped it with non dairy sweetened whipped cream.

Serves 4 -5

2 - 3 Cups Fresh Orange Juice
½ Cup Papaya peeled and diced
1/2 Cup Diced Apple
½ Cup Pineapple, diced
½ Cup Strawberries - chopped
½ Cup Cape Gooseberries - chopped
Non Dairy Sweetened Whipped Cream - as required

If you are making fresh orange juice,  juice the oranges first.
Add all of the diced fruit into a large bowl and pour over the orange juice. Set aside.
Mix and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to an hour. Pour it into serving glasses, top it with whipped cream.
Serve & Enjoy!!

  1. This looks amazing, I love the idea of "eat and drink", esp with the whipped topping.

  2. This sounds so refreshing. I love the idea of combining fruit with juice, especially fresh squeezed orange juice, and the whipped cream on top is like the crowning glory. It would be lovely on a hot day (we're dreaming of those right now).

  3. Love the idea of this dessert! I am loving it! Orange juice, cream and fresh fruits sound perfect and delicious!
