Peel and cube the mangoes, carefully removing the stone in the center.

The cubed mango fruit should be slightly soft and sweet.

Next, add the cubed mangoes, pineapple tidbits, and Mandarin oranges and fold into the cream cheese mixture.  I usually use canned pineapple tidbits and Mandarin oranges.  However, you could use fresh pineapple and tangerines instead.

The addition of fruit flavored mini marshmallows gives Bahama Breeze Tropical Fruit Salad another delicious texture.  And what else could give this yummy dish another layer of tropical flavor?  Coconut, of course!

Toasting the coconut helps bring out the nutty flavor and this adds yet another layer of flavor!  To toast the coconut, simply add it to a skillet and toast it over low/medium heat.  Make sure to stir frequently to prevent scorching the coconut.  This only takes a few minutes, so make sure to watch it closely!
