Banana-Yogurt Ambrosia

Here's an easy ambrosia fruit salad recipe. Young children often balk at dishes in which ingredients are "touching." However, I served this often when my sons were younger and had friends visiting. I found that if kids decide for themselves what's touching what, they don't seem to mind a mixed dish. In fact, most kids loved creating patterns in their yogurt with the other items, and they often asked for seconds.

Ingredients

  • 1 to 2 medium bananas, sliced
  • 1 cup (about half of one 16-ounce can) unsweetened pineapple tidbits, drained or 1 cup fresh, sliced strawberries or bluberries
  • 1 large pear, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 cup small seedless grapes
  • 1/2 cup dark or golden raisins or dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, optional
  • 1 cup granola, optional
  • 2 to 3 cups vanilla soy yogurt (use 1/2 cup per serving)

Instructions

  1. Place all the ingredients except the yogurt into separate, small bowls.
  2. Divide the yogurt among 4 to 6 individual serving bowls. Let everyone take a little of whichever ingredients they'd like to dress up their ambrosia.

Notes

During warm seasons, use frozen yogurt or nondairy dessert and replace the pineapple with sliced strawberries and/or blueberries.
