Fruit Salad with Yogurt Navaratri Recipe 2012Fresh Fruit Salad With Yogurt | Navaratri Recipe

I & Fruits are the best of friends since childhood but sadly these fruits are not so friendly with my kids or vis a versa :)! I am totally obsessed┬áwith all kinds of fruits and can have any fruit offered to me anytime of the day. Recently I received┬áa suggestion from one of my blog reader saying I should also add-on┬áfew healthy fasting recipes for Navaratri,┬áso the quickest & easiest I could think of was making a fruit salad with yogurt something which I always relish having but was┬ásurprised to notice so less of all such recipes which I feel are so very basic for me and all would know so why blog about it, but now I feel I need to share everything that I prepare in my kitchen with my readers be it basic,simple or very simple…I am too lazy to go in for tough time-consuming recipes┬á:)!

Fresh Fruit Salad With Yogurt | Navaratri Recipe

Fresh Fruit Salad With Yogurt | Navaratri Recipe

Ingredients

  • ÔÇó Plain Yogurt ÔÇô 1 cup ( I used Vanilla flavored Yogurt in this recipe)
  • ÔÇó Honey ÔÇô 1 1/2 tablespoons (adjust as per your taste, if using flavored yogurt then no need to add honey)
  • ÔÇó Orange Juice ÔÇô 1/3 cup
  • ÔÇó Fruits of your choice ( I added seedless grapes, papaya, apple, banana, pomegranate, fresh figs, chikoo - Sapodilla)

Instructions

  1. Take a big mixing bowl; chop all the fruits and add them in the bowl after washing them nicely under running water.
  2. Now combine yogurt with honey and mix softly.
  3. Add orange juice to all the fruits and mix them gently.
  4. Take glasses of your choice or a serving bowl and add in fruits to it and top with the yogurt.
  5. Serve chilled.

Notes

Any fruit of your choice can be added to this fruit salad. Plain yogurt mixed with honey or any flavored yogurt can be used for making the fruit salad. I always love to have it using flavored yogurt and this time I added vanilla flavored yogurt to my fruit salad. Since this is also recommended as a navaratri recipe, you can go in for plain yogurt and add in honey to it. In my case we do not mind having flavored yogurt during our fasting but again it is personal choice and also to do with what is been followed at your place, so prepare this accordingly. It tastes great when served chilled. Fresh fruits go extremely well in case of a fruit salad however if fresh fruits are not readily available you can go in for canned ones too. Use your creativity and add nuts also to this recipe. If adding appropriate honey, there is no need to add in sugar to sweeten it further.

Have a FRUIT full life :)!!!!

thank you Dassana, next time try adding little orange juice to the fruits and then top it with yogurt of your choice or even it can go with your vegan option too :)!

Another great fruit salad recipe. I am lucky as my both kids (Archie and Soham) love any and every fruits and raw vegetables (even they eat raw potatoes, mushrooms, broccoli, cauliflower, etc… that is bit concerning me & Neil). Your clicks are very impressive. I have got one of Dassana’s fruit recipe to make this weekend and then will try yours. Some simple recipes are the best, nothing can beat them.

Love this. I generally have a little yogurt with some jaggery powder as a after dinner dessert sometimes. And it reminds me of the ‘panchamratam’ prasad they give at the temples. This is a twist of that prasad .. they add the honey and fruits too, but not the orange juice which is a nice twist to this.

yogurt with lil jaggery is a bliss :), thanks for liking this twist, jaggery syrup can also be added to this recipe along with fruits & yogurt!

Awesome but which orange juice should I use. If u r suggesting home made then how to make it. I m new in cooking thks

anamika April 6, 2014 at 5:07 AM

Hi, fresh orange juice can be made with pulpy oranges, just juice them in a juicer and if they not too sweet add a little powdered sugar to it. Else you can use canned orange juice too as per your convenience. thanks

anamika April 9, 2014 at 10:40 PM

Please use any good brand of readymade juice available in your grocery store. If you plan to make homemade then juice few oranges in your citrus juicer and use immediately because if kept for long orange juice tends to get little sour. Hope it helps
