Tips and variations

  • If you do not have fresh fruit, use frozen fruit or fruit canned in juice (avoid heavy syrup).
  • Mix apples in orange juice right away. The acid in citrus helps keep the fruit from turning brown.
  • Substitute 8 ounces (1 cup) of low-fat piña colada yogurt for orange juice.
  • Make a smoothie with the leftover fruit salad. Just add non-fat yogurt (any flavor) and blend in blender.
  • To prevent choking with small children, cut grapes and banana slices in half or quarters.
