A variation on fruit salad


This is one of the easiest things I make and I have no idea why it gets such rave reviews. Well, I mean it's really, really tasty, but it's so easy! I just don't know why other people don't think of this, that's all. This is a great dish to bring to a summer BBQ or to a potluck, or just to enjoy with your family. I make it just with apples sometimes for breakfast and love it :o) These are completely non-measured measurements as I just throw everything in, but it gives you an idea!

cut up fruit of your choice
-apples, banana, blueberries, kiwi, strawberries, raspberries are what I used this time, you can use fresh or frozen, I'd just recommend taking the time to let the frozen fruit thaw on its own, rather than nuking it in the microwave (it will go mushy if you do that)
1 cup vanilla yogurt
2 spoons of brown sugar
a good squirt of honey
sprinkle of cinnamon (I have a great grinding kit from the Superstore, PC Brand mix of cinnamon, sugar and chocolate that I use instead, but cinnamon on it's own is good too)

Mix everything together and enjoy.
