This is an easy, fat free and refreshing fruit salad. My kids gobbled it up just as quickly as the kind I usually make with whipped cream. Except this time, everything was extremely good for them. The sauce is fat free yogurt with raw cane sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, chia seeds and mint. Makes eating healthier not so bad. :)

Total Time: About 30 minutes

Yield: About 8 side dish servings

Source: Modified from a recipe in the book;"Fix It and Enjoy It".

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cup fat free plain yogurt
  • 1/4 cup raw cane sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 3 bananas, sliced
  • 2 apples, any kind, peeled and cubed
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 cup grapes, halved
  • chia seeds
  • mint leaves

Steps:

  1. In a large bowl, toss your sliced fruit with lemon juice. This will give it a fresh taste as well as prevent browning.
  2. In another bowl, combine your yogurt, sugar and spices.
  3. Place your fruit into a dish, top with your sauce and sprinkle chia seeds on top. Add a nice mint leaf, meant to be eaten as well, and enjoy!

A refreshing side dish we love in summer with sandwiches. We find these are enough fruits but you can add others if you like.

Ingredients:

  • 1 - 20 oz. can chunk pineapple, with juice
  • Ad

  • 1 - 3 oz. package instant vanilla pudding
  • 1 can drained mandarin oranges
  • Cut up apple, banana and and one or two more fresh fruits you like.

Directions:

Early in the day or the night before, gently mix the pineapple and oranges with the dry pudding. Chill. Before serving, add the apple, banana and other fruits. Chill for an hour if you like but it's not necessary, unless you want chilled apples and bananas.

Servings: 4-6 or more
Prep Time: 15 minutes Minutes
Cooking Time: 0 minutes Minutes

To add more "zing" to a simple fruit salad, substitute regular whipped topping with the flavored kinds like strawberry or french vanilla. And to add more nutrition, use flavored fruit yogurts instead of whipped topping.

You would be surprised at how luscious an addition this is.

A delicious alternative to store bought fruit cups. They would be great as a dessert or a special snack for your kids on a hot day.

To make a fresh fruit cup taste and look somewhat special add a little grenadine syrup to your cut up fresh fruit and toss lightly. Sprinkle the top with some toasted coconut. This is good for breakfast, a snack, or an evening dessert. It's so simple yet so pretty and tasty. Happy eating!

This is a recipe from my husband's family that is really easy to put together.

Ad

In a large bowl, mix together a small carton of Cool Whip with a small package of Instant Vanilla Pudding and juice that was drained from a can of pineapple chunks. Add the pineapple chunks and whatever other fruit you enjoy, apples, pears, mandarin oranges, grapes etc.

We've tried it with several different combinations of fruit and it always tastes great.

I have made this recipe for many potlucks. I made it for a staff/volunteer meeting where I volunteer. The boss of the agency asked for the recipe. The original recipe used strawberries. I changed that to canned cherry pie filling. Put the cherries in bowl, 'juice' and all. Add one can pineapple chunks, drained, reserve the juice. Add one can of drained mandarin oranges and 2 bananas sliced. Mix together. If a little more liquid is needed, use some of the pineapple liquid. Need to be able to coat the bananas so they don't turn color. I usually drain the pineapple into the pie filling can, to mix it with the cherry sauce left in the can. Variations, use just cherry pie filling, bananas, and blueberries (fresh) for 4th of July. Can add or delete fruits according to personal taste. Can pitch the leftover 'juice', or drink it, or use it in jello.
