2 passionfruit
2 limes

2 tbsp fresh Groovy CoconutTM, shredded

DIRECTIONS:

1. Scoop the passionfruit's insides into a small bowl, microwave on medium for 20 seconds (which helps the passionfruit pulp break down enough to combine with other ingredients).
2. In a medium bowl, add the scooped-out passionfruit, juice of 2 limes and agave.
3. Scoop out the dragonfruit's insides and chop into small pieces. Add to the bowl.
4. Peel the red guava. Cut in half and slice into small pieces. Discard the seeds, if desired. Add to the bowl. Gently toss to combine. Refrigerate about 2 hours.
5. Just before serving, cut a small slice off 2 sides of a SlimCado avocado (so the avocado could easily stand on either side). Then slice the avocado lengthwise into 4 slices, 2 thin from the middle and then 2 thicker on the sides. Cut around the seed. Discard the seed. Place each slice onto an individual serving plate.
6. Toss the fruit salad gently one more time. Scoop 1/4 of the fruit salad onto each SlimCado slice. Sprinkle the shredded coconut over the fruit salad. Serve immediately.
