Salpicón or Tutti Frutti con helado is a common dessert all around Colombia. We usually use fresh fruit mixed with some orange juice to prevent oxidation of the fruit. The fruit is typically diced small and after an hour or so of being refrigerated, it releases some of its flavor into the orange juice and thickens it a little. The ice cream is what makes it a dessert and to make this even healthier you could serve it with frozen yogurt.
