80--- Jimmy Buffett Salad

Hopefully Jimmy Buffett eats breakfast-- he needs the energy for his concerts. We should ALL eat breakfast! If Jimmy does have breakfast, this is what I think he has.

If you like pina coladas & getting caught in the rain-- you will LOVE this recipe! This fruit salad is great for breakfast or a light lunch, but can be served as a side as well. You can use any fruit that you have in your house, so no need to make a special trip to the grocery store.

Fruit is obviously full of vitamins and fiber. If you struggle with getting your kids to eat fruit, this is a great way to temp their taste buds!

Jimmy Buffet Salad

Serves 8

3 cups fruit of your choice, cut into 1" cubes (I used peaches, strawberries, and blueberries)

1 cup bananas, sliced into 1/2" rounds

1/4 cup raisins or craisins (optional)

12 oz pina colada yogurt

1 Tbsp cinnamon (or to taste)

Granola or chopped walnuts (optional)

Place chopped fruit in a medium bowl. Add yogurt and cinnamon, stir gently until mixed. Serve and top with sprinkle of granola or walnuts.
