Mandarin oranges are a slightly smaller relative of a standard orange - did you know that tangerines and Clementines are both varieties of mandarin oranges? Cuties and Halos are also different types of mandarins depending on what time of year it is. Small, sweet and seedless, we love that these have no seeds and are so easy to peel that even the little ones can do it! And at only 50 calories each and with 2 grams of fiber and half a day's worth of vitamin C and other antioxidants, what's not to love about these little gems?
The longer this fresh salad sits, the juicier it gets from all of the fresh fruit - which will dissolve the marshmallows into nothing-ness. And what kind of kid doesn't just love puffy mini-marshmallows? To keep this as fresh as can be, mix it up right before you want to serve, and toss in mini-marshmallows and sweetened coconut flakes right before you put it on the table. So fresh and good!
