5 Minute Fluffy Yogurt Fruit Salad

This 5 Minute Fluffy Yogurt Fruit Salad is usually my go-to side dish on busy nights. It is so easy to make, it literally takes five minutes to make. It's also a favorite with my kids. Tastes like dessert.

When the temperatures start to climb, my desire to spend time in a hot kitchen baking food is non-existent.
Unfortunately, my family still wants to eat (ha ha), so I try to find recipes that can be made in as little time as possible.
When I say that this recipe takes five minutes to throw together, I really am not kidding. It’s the perfect side dish to any meal and is always a hit at potlucks.
Everyone LOVES this recipe. It is so delicious. It could practically be a dessert it is so tasty. Your family and friends are going to love this one. It is the BEST fruit salad, I have tried in a while.

how to make 5 minute fluffy fruit salad

Step 1: Dump your yogurt into a bowl.

Step 2: Fold in the container of Cool Whip.

Step 3: Mix well.

Step 4: Add marshmallows and fruit. (If you use canned fruit, be sure to drain it).

Step 5: Chill and serve

*We also love to use strawberry yogurt and add some fresh strawberries.

*If you use canned fruit, make sure you drain it VERY well or it will make your salad runny. You may also want to dry your pre-washed fresh fruit with a paper towel as well.

how to make homemade whipped cream

Homemade whipped cream is my jam. It tastes so amazing. I however, usually buy mine from a container on the freezer aisle at the grocery store.

I prefer the homemade stuff, but I am a busy mom and if I can save myself a little time, I will.

However, I do feel like the homemade stuff is  little better, because I can see what it is, exactly, that I am eating.

Here is how you make it:

Step 1: Prepare a cold bowl and metal whisk. (I just put mine in the freezer for about 20 minutes).

Step 2: Combine about 2 Tablespoons of sugar and 1 cup of heavy whipping cream in the bowl.

Step 3: Using a hand mixer, whip and combine until the whipped cream creates peaks.

Step 4: Store in fridge until ready to serve. I would use and serve within the same day of making.
