Great recipe, not only because it's delicious and nutricious but because it combines two of my favorite things - fruit and yogurt. I could live on the stuff! This is a great base to combine your favorite fruits or whatever fruits happen to be in season along with your favorite yogurt. I used red grapes and added in some banana. This made a ton of fruit salad - but since it's so hot and this is so refreshing that won't be a problem. I used fat-free vanilla yogurt and this made a great "go to" snack that was low in fat and calories. It was great spinkled with a little wheat germ on top!-03 Aug 2011

I cut this recipe in half. I didn't have any pineapple so I omitted it. I also used halved green grapes. We loved this salad. Very simple and refreshing on such a hot day. It was SO wonderful--I think fresh fruit and vanilla yogurt has to be one of the best food combinations ever thought up. NO leftovers.-29 Jul 2011
Are you looking for a healthy recipe to bring to a holiday gathering? A fruit platter or fruit salad with this Honey Yogurt Dip is always a hit.
Whether you make this Fresh Fruit Salad for a party or you're making it to serve at home, everyone who tries it sings it's praises.
The wow factor of this simple flavorful fruit salad is the addition of Cotton Candy® grapes. This newer, super sweet variety delivers a very distinctive flavor worthy of its memory-invoking name.
If you haven't taken a bite out of Cotton Candy® grapes, you're missing out. They are lip smacking good!
Another note, in order to get the best presentation that our yummy fruit salad deserves, don't add the strawberries to the salad until right before serving.
If you add the strawberries in earlier, the rest of the fruit will start to absorb the bright red color of the strawberries. To prevent browning, slice and add kiwi to the bowl right before serving, as well.
At this point, you might be asking, what the heck is Icelandic-style yogurt? Well, you are not alone. I had to look it up too.
Just like Greek yogurt, Icelandic-style yogurt is made by straining yogurt. However, the difference between the two is that the Icelandic version is traditionally made from non-fat milk. Additionally, the Icelandic style yogurt usually has no added (or very little) sugar or flavor. (source)
Compared to Greek yogurt, the Icelandic style is higher in protein with a richer and creamier texture.
And when I say creamy, I mean it. It is nice, thick, and more importantly perfectly dippable, which is why I think it makes the best low-calorie fruit dip without losing its creaminess.
Lucky for us, our local Shaw’s store conveniently sells two kinds of Icelandic style yogurt: Plain and Vanilla. They are both non-fat.
And let me tell you, I usually do not care about vanilla yogurt because I think most of the time they are too sweet for my taste. However, their version is sweetened minimally and made with vanilla bean specks.
Plus, our local Shaws’ Open Nature products are made with clean, minimally processed products, and free from additives like nitrates, benzoates, artificial flavors, and preservatives. This is one of the reasons why I love shopping there.
Preheat oven to 110°C/230 °F . Line a large oven tray with baking paper.
In a large mixing bowl, combine egg whites and salt. Beat using an electric mixer until soft peaks begin to form. Continue beating, whilst gradually adding caster sugar, until stiff peaks form and the mixture is glossy. Using a spatula, gently fold through cornflour and scraped seeds from the vanilla bean pod.
Spoon meringue onto baking sheet to form 8 even circles. Bake in the oven for 1 hour or until meringues are crisp to touch but not browned. Turn oven off and leave meringues inside to cool for 2-3 hours with the door slightly ajar.
Place sliced strawberries and kiwi fruit in a mixing bowl and stir to combine. Set aside.
Top each meringue nest with a dollop of yoghurt. Decorate with the sliced fruit and spoon about a tablespoon of passionfruit pulp over each meringue. Add a couple of mint leaves and blueberries to decorate.
Greek Yogurt Fruit Salad
I&rsquom pretty sure I mentioned in my Skinny Chocolate Cake post a couple of weeks ago that I&rsquom working to shed some postpartum baby weight and get back into a healthy eating routine again. My littlest guy is 10 weeks old now (how is that even possible. ❤️) and my journey back to health has been much anticipated! That journey isn&rsquot all about weight loss though. Really it has more to do with recovering from a very difficult and sickly pregnancy (you can read more about that here) and just getting back to feeling like myself again!
As much as I&rsquom excited to be back on track with healthy eating, letting go of sweets is proving to be just as challenging as ever. I love desserts, y&rsquoall. Chocolate? Ice cream? Cookies? Brownies??? I can. not. resist!
But ya know what, healthy desserts aren&rsquot so bad! This Greek Yogurt Fruit Salad is proof of that, and it&rsquos so quick and easy, you will want to make it all the time! It&rsquos especially good right now when fresh berries are at their peak, and well priced too!
I make this salad with a combination of fruits including strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, and grapes. I used a cup of each one, except for the grapes which I used two cups of. You can use whatever variety and amount you&rsquod like, though! It&rsquos my new go-to healthy dessert because it tastes like fruit with a touch of cheesecake. Enjoy!!
Tropical Fruit Salad with Vanilla Greek Yogurt
This delicious Tropical Fruit Salad has:
- vanilla Greek yogurt
- diced mangoes
- crushed pineapple with juice
Substitute 30 oz of canned tropical fruit salad for the mangoes, pineapple and Mandarin oranges. I’m sure that would be great too! I just love the shredded coconut with these breakfast fruits.
If you think it isn’t sweet enough, just add some sugar or sugar substitute. I found it sweet enough but, I don’t put sugar in my coffee so, I may not be the best person to judge sweetness.
This fruit salad takes minutes to put together. The best part is there is very little peeling and chopping (just one banana.) I hardly call that work! Plus, you could store most of these ingredients in your pantry and pull them out to make this easy fruit salad in minutes if company drops in.
One summer, when my son was 1.5 yrs old and I was pregnant with my second son, we ate two watermelons with cantaloupe and strawberries per week! I was so tired of cutting up melons by the end of that summer!
Having two boys that love vanilla Greek yogurt, I have a stock of it in my fridge. You could use plain Greek yogurt or even lemon yogurt. Get creative. That’s what happens when I’m out of ingredients.
Kick up your ordinary summer fruit salad by making this yummy tropical fruit salad with vanilla Greek yogurt!
Possible Add ins:
- Marachino cherries
- grape halves
- pecan pieces
- mini marshmallows
You’re sure to like the tropical flavors in this Tropical Fruit Salad with Vanilla Greek Yogurt. Plus, it takes most of the work out of making traditional fruit salad. Hardly any peeling and cutting! It’s easy to make for potlucks and a great gluten free option.

Rainbow Fruit Skewers with Vanilla-Honey Yogurt Dip
If there’s one thing this baby’s got me craving constantly, it’s fruit, fruit and more fruit. Fresh berries, juicy citrus and gorgeous green kiwi are my addiction… and I don’t wanna quit. They tried to make me go to raspberry rehab, and I said noooooo no no.
So, what better way to get my fruity fill and celebrate St. Patrick’s Day than with a little edible rainbow?
Paired with a creamy honey-vanilla yogurt dip, these fruit skewers are a scrumptious, healthy snack… and super easy, too! For a little spice, swirl a half teaspoon of cinnamon into the dip. Need a little color on top? Garnish with mint leaves or a few extra berries.
For the skewers, just pile on your favorite fruits! Anything that you like, or that’s in season, is a good bet. Instead of raspberries, try strawberries. Swap the orange with cut-up cantaloupe, or the kiwi for green grapes. Feel free to get creative!
For birthdays, showers, and any spring or summer event, these rainbow fruit skewers are the perfect party snack! They’re fresh and light, easy to make last-minute, and adorably colorful.
You can also use the dip on cut-up apples, bananas and strawberries! If you’d like it a little sweeter, add a bit of brown sugar. Want a more savory dip for a veggie platter? Toss the yogurt with a packet of Ranch seasoning or your favorite hot sauce.
- Combine the sour cream, brown sugar and ginger. Toss with fruit. I usually chill the fruit for awhile before adding the dressing. Add the cocoanut and nuts right before serving.

HOW TO MAKE FRUIT DIP
This recipe is so good and has only three ingredients. It is so fast and easy to make…just how you want your summer recipes! And fresh fruit is abundant so its the perfect dish!
- 1 (32 ounce) container Low-Fat Vanilla Yogurt
- 8 oz. Whipping Cream (or 1 8 oz. Cool Whip)

- Fruit for serving, washed
- In a large bowl, whip up your Whipping Cream.
- Add pudding mix and yogurt and mix until completely combined and you see no more lumps. The mixture will be a little bit gritty at first because the pudding hasn’t had a chance to dissolve into the yogurt mixture yet.

Snack healthier this summer with this fresh fruit salad and creamy skinny healthy 3 ingredient honey yogurt sauce. It&rsquos all natural and no sugar. Plus, it&rsquos easy to prepare and eat!
Would you rather have a fruit salad with honey yogurt dressing or a slice of cake?! This summer fruit salads are on my to eat list.
I&rsquove lost almost 25 pounds this year by eating healthier. This fruit salad sauce is totally going to make things easier. You see, after I had my 2nd daughter I found myself at 175 pounds. This is coming from a petite 5 foot lady. I felt down and being over-weight actually makes it harder to lose weight. Long story short. Instead of dieting, I decided to incorporating more healthy food in my diet while making it fun. Check out my instagram for more food and recipe inspiration!
No back to the salad and this yummy healthy honey yogurt sauce. To make this salad, slice any type of fruit you have on hand and mix them with fresh orange juice to preserve their color. This is especially true for bananas or apples. The orange juice will keep them from browning. Next make the simple 3 ingredient honey yogurt sauce. I&rsquove pretty much spilled the beans in the title by the 3 ingredients are honey, vanilla, and yogurt. Combine the 3 ingredients and that&rsquos it your done! Serve the sauce in a small bowl as a dip and surrounded it with fruit or drizzle it on the fruit and serve it as a fruit salad. Enjoy!
