Healthy Fruit Salad with Greek Yogurt Dip
‘Fruit salad – yummy, yummy!’ If you have children you may recognize this line from a popular children’s song? In fact, I don’t think I can make another fruit salad without thinking of this song from the Wiggles . Ever since it came out and I watched it with my kids, it comes to mind immediately when I think ‘fruit salad’! I’ve been forever ‘wiggled’.
My healthy fruit salad mix is not just your typical serve. I’ve created a flower bowl out of a cantaloupe and filled the center with my Blueberry Greek Yogurt blend. It’s all very simple, but absolutely delicious. And, Fresh!
It’s great because as you scoop out the fruit salad you scoop right into the flavorful yogurt dip beneath the fruit = added YUM!
This recipe is great for Mother’s Day, entertaining, special occasions and of course, just for fun. Fruit salad requires a little bit of work, but it’s so worth it once it’s done and ready to serve!
Here is the recipe to dice, slice, scoop and serve…
- 1 cantaloupe melon
- ¼ cup fresh frozen blueberries, thawed
- 3 oz. plain Greek yogurt
- 3 oz. vanilla low-fat yogurt
- 1 tablespoon honey
- Cut the cantaloupe melon in half. Remove the seeds.
- Using a sharp knife cut the edges of the cantaloupe like a flower to create a flowered fruit bowl.
- Wash and hull the strawberries. Slice them into bite sizes.
- Wash the grapes & cut them in half.
- Remove the exterior of the pineapple and cut it into edible chunk size pieces.
- Remove the rind of the watermelon & dice it.
- Wash the blueberries and raspberries.
- Stir all of the fruit together to make a fruit salad.
- Puree the blueberries in a mini food processor or blender.
- Stir the Greek yogurt and honey together.
- Fold the Greek yogurt, honey, blueberries and low fat yogurt together.
- Place the dip in the bottom of the cantaloupe flower & then fill the edible bowl with fruit salad for a delicious serve.
Cutting the cantaloupe: If you have a child old enough to use a sharp knife, you can cut in a slight line for them to use as a guide to cut the flower pedals or use a marker to draw lines for them to follow on the rind/non-edible area only.
Making Fruit Salad with little hands: Once the strawberries are hulled and the watermelon has been removed from the rind, these fruits are great for younger children to cut with a plastic butter knife & be a part of the process.
