FESTIVE FRUIT SALAD

This is a lighter version of the beloved Ambrosia salad. You have to start 24 hours before you plan to serve this.
  • 2 cups non-fat vanilla yogurt
  • 1 20oz can pineapple chunks in juice, drained
  • 2 10oz cans mandarin oranges
  • 4 large bananas, sliced
  • 1/4 cup flaked coconut
  • 1 cup miniature marshmallows
First make yogurt cheese. Put a layer of cheesecloth into a sieve or funnel and put over a bowl. Pour yogurt into the cheesecloth. Let it drain in the refrigerator over night. The creamy mixture that remains is called yogurt cheese. There should be about 1 cup.

In a large bowl, combine the fruits and marshmallows. Add the yogurt cheese and toss to mix. Cover the salad and chill 1 to 3 hours before serving.

12 servings (2/3 cup each), 1.5 POINTS

**NOTE TO MY FRIENDS**
Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
