fresh fruit salad with honey vanilla yogurt

i’ve been trying to eat more yogurt (because practically every health article says how good it is for you) but pre-packaged yogurt with fruit has a lot of sugar so i wanted to learn healthy yogurt recipes.

i saw this on food network a while ago and even though i’m not big on honey, i was curious how this would taste. i’m glad i gave it a try. the plain yogurt with vanilla and honey tastes great but over the fresh fruit salad, it is awesome!

sweet and healthy – it’s the perfect dessert or snack anytime.


For the yogurt

  • 2-1/2 cups lowfat plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons pure honey
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Seeds scraped from 1 vanilla bean, optional

For the fruit saald

  • 1 orange, separated and cut into pieces
  • 1 banana, sliced
  • 6 ounces fresh blueberries
  • 1 pound fresh strawberries, hulled and cut in half
  • 1 bunch seedless green grapes, halved
  • 1 bunch seedless red grapes, halved


Combine the yogurt, honey, vanilla extract, and vanilla bean seeds in a bowl and set aside.

Combine the orange, banana slices, berries and grapes in a separate bowl. Gently mix the fruit mixture together.

Spoon the fruit into serving bowls and top with the yogurt.
