This was so good, quick, and easy. Much more flavorful than just eating the can of fruit cocktail. The pina colada yogurt is a nice way to hold it together a little and add some more flavor.

This was delicious made with lemon yogurt, an option given on the FDPIR oranges fact sheet version of the recipe.

The Pina Colada yogurt is an excellent addition to this fruit salad. This salad is delicious as a filling snack, dessert, side & everything in between! Plus, no cooking required!
