Orange Honey Dessert

Oranges grow in California year-round. In winter we get thick-skinned navel oranges, and in summer juicy Valencia oranges. This easy dessert is healthy, too.

The cheerful colors brighten the night, and cool the palette after a spicy meal. If you’re looking for a midday snack, this is also a great, healthy pick-me-up.

Orange Honey Dessert

yields 2-3 servings


  • 1 large orange, peeled and sectioned
  • 1 teaspoon wild flower honey
  • 1 teaspoon shredded, unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 teaspoon sliced almonds


  1. Place half of the orange slices on a plate.
  2. Drizzle half the honey over the orange slices.
  3. Sprinkle half the coconut flakes and half the almonds over the oranges.
  4. Repeat with a second plate.
  5. Serve.
