Expert Tips

Use one can of mandarin orange segments and one can of pineapple chunks for extra flavor and color.

Save the juice from the canned oranges, and stir it into plain or vanilla yogurt for a fruity flavor!

Use 4 fresh oranges, peeled and sectioned, instead of the mandarin oranges for a fresh twist.
