(It takes 2) FRUIT SALAD
Plain and simple (actually, way too simple) fruit salad but packed with yummy goodness.
2 cups vanilla flavored yogurt (great with lowfat vanilla yogurt from Organic Valley, available at Whole Foods Market, see below)
2 packages (3.5 oz each) vanilla instant pudding mix
2 cans canned fruits (29 oz can tropical fruit salad + 11 oz can mandarin oranges), well-drained
2 ripe bananas, chopped
2 apples, chopped
2 cups colored miniature marshmallows
2 cups whipped cream (1 cup whipping cream, whipped)
Coarsely chopped peanuts (optional)
In a large mixing bowl, whisk yogurt and pudding mixes until mixture thickens. Fold in well-drained canned fruits, bananas, apples, marshmallows and whipped cream. Refrigerate until serving. Yield: 8 servings.
So you see, I even divided the fruit salad in 2 round trays…one for me, and one for YOU!
