I prefer less prepackaged food. I make my fruit salad with apples, bananas, oranges, tangerines, 1small can pineapple tid-bits - drained, cherries, flaked coconut to taste, 1 quart container of vanilla yogurt.

Dice and/or slice fresh fruit and mix all ingrediantes together and chill for 1hour. Enjoy the different textures and flavors.

Canned fruit is high in sugar so I would suggest if using canned fruit even in light syrup to drain & rinse fruit before combining & also getting sugar free (natural) coconut if you want to add that. In fact, if you toast the coconut before you get more coconut flavor & some of the oil from the coconut is burned off. You can substitute vanilla yogurt with plain Greek Fage yogurt which is lower in sugar. All of these are what I do & will cut a large amount of sugar & calories.
