Add this to your list of easy fruit salad recipes! It makes a tasty breakfast too.
What’s really great about this fruit salad recipe is that you can capture the flavors of summer in the wintertime because this recipe uses canned fruit. It’s so disappointing getting fresh fruit in the wintertime that is not sweet.

Tropical Fruit Salad with Vanilla Greek Yogurt
This delicious Tropical Fruit Salad has:
- vanilla Greek yogurt
- shredded sweetened coconut
- diced mangoes
- Mandarin oranges
- crushed pineapple with juice
Substitute 30 oz of canned tropical fruit salad for the mangoes, pineapple and Mandarin oranges. I’m sure that would be great too! I just love the shredded coconut with these breakfast fruits.
If you think it isn’t sweet enough, just add some sugar or sugar substitute. I found it sweet enough but, I don’t put sugar in my coffee so, I may not be the best person to judge sweetness.
This fruit salad takes minutes to put together. The best part is there is very little peeling and chopping (just one banana.) I hardly call that work! Plus, you could store most of these ingredients in your pantry and pull them out to make this easy fruit salad in minutes if company drops in.
One summer, when my son was 1.5 yrs old and I was pregnant with my second son, we ate two watermelons with cantaloupe and strawberries per week! I was so tired of cutting up melons by the end of that summer!
Having two boys that love vanilla Greek yogurt, I have a stock of it in my fridge. You could use plain Greek yogurt or even lemon yogurt. Get creative. That’s what happens when I’m out of ingredients.
