Key Lime Fruit Salad

It’s sheer bliss - lots of fresh summer fruit topped with creamy yogurt.

1 container (6 ounces) Yoplait® Thick & Creamy Key lime pie yogurt
2 tablespoons orange juice
2 cups fresh pineapple chunks
1 cup strawberry halves
2 cups green grapes
1 cup blueberries
2 cups cubed cantaloupe
1/4 cup flaked or shredded coconut, toasted

1 . Mix yogurt and orange juice; set aside.
2 . In 2 1/2-quart clear glass bowl, layer fruit in order listed. Pour yogurt mixture over fruit. Sprinkle with coconut. Serve immediately.

NOTE: I use the low-carb (imagine that) yogurt and NO coconut! Coconut belongs in nothing but a cake in my opinion! LOL!
