And my family loves fruit salad recipes. I’ve got some really elaborate recipes that call for apple pie filling and soaking the fruit in pineapple juice. I’ve got recipes that call for kiwi and lots of different kinds of fruits.
And then I’ve got this one. This is Fruit Salad in a Flash. It’s the simplest thing in the world, but people absolutely love it whenever I serve it. And although it’s easy to think about yogurt and fruit in smoothies, it might not immediately come to mind when thinking about a salad.
Unfortunately, right now we’ve got House of Strep at my home, even as I type. My daughter has been afflicted with lovely, pervasive streptococcus bacteria for a couple of days now. For a while I thought I would be Super Mom and resist the powerful germs! But no. :) Apparently I’m not quite as immune to strep throat as I’d thought!
And when Mom isn’t well, all hades breaks loose on our household. To keep the boy members of our household from eating potato chips and cookies for supper, I offer: Fruit Salad in a Flash!
20 oz. can of pineapple tidbits or chunks
20 oz. can of sliced peaches
6 ounces of French vanilla yogurt
Mix all the ingredients together. If you’re making a small amount of fruit salad (if you just don’t have as much fruit around your house), then you can definitely reduce the amount of yogurt you use. You could also experiment with different fruits and different types of yogurt.
Obviously, you just can’t beat fruit and yogurt for a healthy alternative to whatever the boys will find in the pantry. :) And it’s great on a sore throat, too!
