While fall is fast approaching, I am not quite ready to give up the bounty of summer fruit still available in the grocery store. Sure, pumpkin spice is nice but the crunch of fresh fruit is absolutely delicious!

A big bowl of fruit salad makes a healthy snack and is a great addition to just about any get-together that involves food. The easy yogurt glaze was a tasty addition to this healthy fruit salad recipe!

Fruit Salad with Honey Yogurt Glaze

Yogurt Glaze for Fruit is So Creamy!

Okay, so, I have never made this easy yogurt glaze before but the idea was absolutely fabulous. Basically, you take fruit juice and honey. Thicken it with corn starch in a small saucepan. Once it cools, add in some Greek Yogurt. Voila! You have a creamy, all-natural fruit glaze to drizzle over your fruit salad recipe!

Best Fruits for a Homemade Fruit Salad

Which fruits are best for your homemade fruit salad recipe? That totally depends on what you find on sale! You will need anywhere from 4 to 6 cups of fresh fruit for this recipe.

I went with nectarines, apples, green and red grapes, blueberries, strawberries, kiwi, and canned pineapple. Why canned pineapple instead of fresh? because the pineapple juice from the can is what you make the honey yogurt glaze with!

Healthy Fruit Salad Recipe with Easy Yogurt Glaze

My one tip for making fruit salad with a yogurt glaze is to only add the glaze to the amount of fruit you are going to eat right then and there. As it sits, it becomes a bit watered down from the juice being given off from the fruit. It will still be delicious, but just not as creamy.

Easy Fruit Salad Recipe

Make up the easy yogurt glaze and put it in a glass mason jar in the fridge. Then, scoop out your fruit salad into a bowl and add the desired amount of glaze. Both the fruit salad and the glaze should last for several days in the refrigerator.
