Fun, Fast, Fruit Salad

Once a week Sunshine and I attend a local homeschool coop. It gives her some extra classes during the week, time with friends, and I get to connect with other moms who homeschool. This particular week we had a potluck lunch. I had signed up for a couple of items. One of them was a fruit salad. I forgot to go the the store the night before and so this is what I came up with the morning of. 


Frozen mixed berries
2-3 Yoplait blueberry yogurt cups
1 small can pineapple
1 small can mandarin oranges
2 small apples cut cup
3 Tbs powered sugar
1/2 tub cool whip

I first put the yogurt in a bowl then added the powered sugar. I add the sugar because I know the berries are a bit tart. I then add the cool whip and get it all mix in together.

I drain the oranges and pineapple and peel and cut up the apples. These along with the berries all go in to the yogurt mix. I cover and let it set in the fridge for a few hours before serving.
This was really easy and yummy. Any fruit on hand would be delicious and my guess is, just about any flavored yogurt would work too. You could even add marshmallows and coconut if you wanted. I like the fact that I was able to use what I had in the house! Do you have a favorite fruit salad you like to make? Please share!

  1. Oh wow what a great idea!!! We just yesterday challenged ourselves to not buy any food for a month (aside from fresh veggies and milk). This is going to be made! Thanks ��

  2. Looking forward to seeing what you make from using up the pantry!
