Reviews for Quick Fruit Medley
"I love how quick this recipe is! It's easy enough to substitute whatever fruits you like or have on hand. I also love that the canned fruit juices serve as a sauce without adding extra calories."
"This recipe is requested by my kids at every party and is always gone whether I am serving to adults or kids. I make at least a double batch each time. I do substitute frozen or fresh raspberries or blackberries for the blueberries as my kids don't like blueberries."
