If you are looking for the most amazing easy fruit salad recipe, then you are going to LOVE this marshmallow fruit salad. This fruit salad recipe is mostly healthy, but also includes some fun with the marshmallows that will make it totally kid friendly and everyone will love it!
Yes this easy fruit salad recipe is perfect for summer and warm weather, however fruit salad is perfect for the kids lunches boxes. Which is why right now I am sharing a fruit salad recipe in September. I might also be a little bit behind on posting the recipes I have wanted to share with you recently, but hey fruit salad in September totally works right!?! I am going to say yes, it does. LOL.
You can totally save this fruit salad recipe for summer time, but you don’t have to! Actually I suggest you make it now and put it in the kids lunches as it is the perfect lunch box fruit salad! I also suggest that you pack some in your own lunch, because it is really amazing!
My kids like to call this marshmallow fruit salad. They are totally in love with the fact that I put marshmallows in their fruit salad. I become the cool mom because I am letting them enjoy marshmallows in a salad. I will take the cool mom status, with a teen in the house mom being cool is not always a thought for them. LOL!
Aside from the marshmallows, this is a totally healthy fruit salad recipe. This fruit salad is made with pineapples, mandarin oranges, apples, grapes and greek yogurt…. those are the things that make it healthy! 🙂 Then we add the marshmallows, so I think it balances out perfectly fine and the marshmallows are going to do no one any harm and you get the cool mom status. 😉
Now I guess you could make this fun fruit salad with out the marshmallows, but I don’t suggest doing so. That is what makes it fun! You can add in some coconut flakes if you want to and that gives it a great boost in flavor. However it all depends on my mood if I put the coconut in or not. If you like coconut add it, if you don’t like coconut skip it. Either way you still end up with a tasty fruit salad!
I wanted this fruit salad to be on the healthy side because I wanted to be able to pack it in the kids lunches. I wanted you guys to all be able to pack it in your kids lunches also with out worrying about it being healthy. So to make this fruit salad creamy, we use greek yogurt. I used vanilla greek yogurt, however if all you have on hand is some of the fruit on the bottom greek yogurt or plain greek yogurt, i bet that would be tasty too!

I do have to mention that one of my favorite things about this tasty fruit salad is how super easy it is to make. There is no cutting of fruit except for the apple. To make life easier I use an apple slicers, that does the coring for me and then I just cut the slices of apples into bite sized pieces. The rest of the fruit is just poured from a can into a bowl and mixed together. So simple!
