4 large seedless oranges

1 1/2 cups grated unsweetened coconut

1 papaya, peeled and sliced thinly

1 pint blackberries

3 starfruit, sliced

1 1/2 cups pecans

Blueberry or clover honey


  1. Remove the skin and membranes from the oranges and slice them in 1/4-inch slices. Place a layer of orange slices in the bottom of a large glass bowl, add a layer of coconut, then a layer of papaya, then blackberries, then starfruit, and then pecans. Repeat the process until all the fruit has been used. If the oranges are not especially sweet, a light layer of blueberry or clover honey will help.
  2. Cover the bowl tightly and refrigerate for an hour or more before serving.
