This recipe is an easy take on ambrosia and a wonderfully refreshing way to start Christmas morning.

Ingredients

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 325F.
  • Spread coconut in a pie plate and bake, stirring occasionally, until lightly toasted, about 10 minutes. (Watch carefully, as coconut burns easily.) Cool and set aside.
  • Slice grapefruit and oranges into 1/4-inch thick rounds. Arrange in layers, sprinkling each with some brown sugar in a glass or ceramic bowl. Cover and chill at least 2 hours. Sprinkle with coconut just before serving.
  • Make ahead: Coconut can be toasted 1 day ahead and kept covered at room temperature. Fruit can be sliced 1 day ahead and kept chilled, covered.
