Springtime Fruit & Yogurt Bowl Recipe


No brunch would be complete without dessert, and while brunch desserts are generally lighter and less sweet, they are desserts nonetheless. This Spring Fruit & Yogurt Bowl is especially appropriate for a spring brunch since itís loaded with strawberries and other seasonal fruit; the topping is light and lemony, and crushed lemon cookies add extra texture. Another bonus is that it isnít too sweet, so if the cookies are omitted, it can double as a fresh fruit salad.
ĒĒ
This dessert adapts well to almost any fruit; blueberries, raspberries, or blackberries can be added if they are available, as well as both red and green grapes. Chunks of fresh pineapple can also be added. There is ample dressing to add two or three cups of extra fruit. Check out what is available at your grocery store and adapt this dessert to your own tastes.

8 Servings

1 pound strawberries
2 mangoes
2 bananas

1 cup whipping cream
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 6 oz. package lemon yogurt
