"Great recipe! I make as is, except I leave out the coconut as no one in my family likes it. I make this all the time - and I love that you can mix and match whatever fruit you have on hand."

"I made this for the first time yesterday for a dinner party.

Everyone loved it, including my husband who is a very fussy eater.
I will make it again."

"I used a combination of low fat mango yogurt and vanilla yogurt in it instead of just plain vanilla. This is a yummy inexpensive fruit salad."
