This is a pretty basic fruit salad everyone.  About as basic as it gets.  This is a scaled down version of what Mom made.  This serves 2 people.

Mom’s Fruit Salad

1 medium apple, chopped with peel left on
1 medium banana, peeled and sliced
1 medium orange, peeled and chopped coarsely
1 tbsp. lemon juice
2 tbsp. water
1 tbsp. sugar or 1/16 tsp. stevia powder extract (2 of the little scoops that come in the small jars of NOW stevia powder) for those who need to watch their sugar intake.

Mix the fruit together.  Then combine lemon juice, water and stevia in a small jar and shake till stevia is dissolved.  Pour over the fruit and toss.  Store in fridge for a bit (about an hour) to soften the fruit and blend flavours.  Yummy!  You can use regular whipped cream or commercial whipped topping, or if you want, you can make a Coconut Whipped Cream Topping for this.

Whipped Topping

Full fat can of coconut milk
1/16 tsp. stevia extract powder (1 tsp. sugar)
1 tsp. vanilla
cinnamon (opt.)

Put coconut milk in fridge overnight. Also cool a mixing bowl in the freezer. About an hour before serving, whip the milk in the cold mixing bowl. Add sweetener and vanilla. Whip till light and soft.  Tastes like real whipped cream!  Can also be used in other places calling for whipped cream.
