how to make Creamy yogurt fresh fruit salad
Step 1: Mix together the prepared fruit in a large bowl. We did strawberries, peaches, bananas, and red seedless grapes.
You can do any fruit that is in season, but these fruits go great together.
Step 2: Gently mix in 2 Tablespoons of lime juice to keep the fruit from browning.
Step 3: In a separate small bowl, mix together yogurt, lemon juice, sugar, and vanilla.
Step 4: Add yogurt mixture to the prepared fruit mix until well combined.
can I make this recipe ahead of time?
You can make this recipe ahead of time. However, we recommend not adding the bananas until serving. We would not recommend making this more than one day ahead of time.
Even if you add lemon juice, your bananas will lose their texture and get soggy. We have found this recipe works best when you make it ahead of time, if you add the yogurt mixture and bananas right before serving.
Also keep it in an airtight container in a fridge. You don’t want any extra moisture getting in.
what yogurt works best for this recipe?
Really any yogurt will work for this recipe. The textures will be different with each one you choose. I prefer Greek yogurt because I love the texture and it has so many health benefits.
We have tried this recipe with many different yogurts, and they all seem to work. I even like it using non-dairy yogurt with this recipe, and it is delicious.
