This creamy fruit salad recipe, using Greek yogurt, is sweet and creamy without the added calories!

A blue bowl sitting on a napkin and filled with grapes, mandarin oranges, apples, marshmallows, and a Greek yogurt dressing.

Did you know that a traditional “5-cup fruit salad” uses sour cream as the sauce? I’m sorry, but does anyone else cringe at that thought? Sour cream…really?  This fruit salad recipe has the same delicious creamy flavor, but uses Greek yogurt instead.

It’s creamy and sweet and absolutly delicious! Plus it takes all of 10 minutes to throw together. It’s the perfect side for family gatherings, holidays, or parties where you want something fun and something everyone will love!

  • 10 ounce can pineapple chunks , drained
  • 11 ounce can mandarin oranges , drained
  • 1 medium apple , cored and chopped
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 cup grapes , halved
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup shredded sweetened coconut
  • 1 cup mini marshmallows


  • Add apple to a large bowl and toss in lemon juice to keep from browning. 
  • Add the pineapple, mandarin oranges, grapes, coconut, and marshmallows and toss to combine. 
  • Stir in Greek yogurt, gently tossing to coat.
  • Refrigerate for at least 4 hours prior to serving to allow the flavors to meld together. Serve chilled.


After a day or so of sitting in the fridge, liquid from the fruit may pool at the bottom. If eating the leftovers, I like to gently pour some of this off before eating.

    This is a winner at my house! Easily tossed together and modifiable for the fruits your family likes, though I stick with the recipe as outline. I used my chopper to get many of the ingredients the same size. Thanks Lauren!
