Breakfast Fruit Salad

Cooking with Kids: Breakfast Fruit Salad

One of the summer breakfasts that my kids love is my fruit salad, although it can be eaten all year round.  And  kids can make this salad, with very little supervision!!!  I like recipes that kids make because when they  participate in making it, they will usually eat it.

First chop some strawberries.  In a hurry, use strawberries from the produce isle in the store.

Add some Greek vanilla yogurt…

I like to use Chobani, but my kids prefer Yoplait because it is sweeter and less tangy (probably less healthy too), but on this one I let them win  …

Toss in some  coconut…

Stir.   The mardarins will crush,  mixing with the vanilla yogurt creating a wonderful sauce.
