Easy, yummy and pretty good for you. The kids eat it up.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 13, 2013

This was delicious! I was looking for a light, refreshing fruit salad that I could enjoy even when I don't have fresh fruit on hand. This filled that desire perfectly! I didn't have bananas, so obviously left them out, and I added about a cup of mini-marshmallows. My husband and 4 boys all loved it and between the 6 of us, we finished off the whole thing in one meal!

I have made this many times and lost the recipe. Thank heavens I found it again. It is easy, sweet, fresh, and cool for the summer! Thank-you for such a good idea!
