Walk on the Beach Ambrosia Fruit Salad

I don't know just what it is about this combination of fruit; but it's one of the most refreshing fruit salads ever! We serve this adaptation of Dr. Barnard’s recipe at the vegan “Walk on the Beach” retreats, hosted by Vegan Gal, Jill Keb.

  • 1 tablespoon frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract


  1. In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients.
