Of course, fruit salad is simple enough to change up to what suits your personal tastes – fruits may be substituted, and different yogurts used, or switched for Cool Whip – you get the idea. This particular recipe calls for apples, bananas, oranges, and grapes, with the addition of lemon and yogurt.

    Sounds very lovely! Would you recommend a plain yogurt or a flavored/sweetened yogurt?

    Thanks ! I haven't tried it with plain yogurt; I imagine it would taste better with sweetened yogurt, but it's up to your preference
