Pink and Sweet Pinkie Pie Fruit Salad

Around here we love sweet and healthy treats. Any parent knows this duo is a winning combination for getting some good stuff into little ones. But lately we’ve been giving thought to the phrase, “we eat with our eyes.” Who ever coined the term, must have been a parent, because kids in particular can be swayed or nay-ed by the looks of a plate. This easy recipe has it all, sweet, check! Healthy, check! And pretty, check!

If you need more reason to try this one out, it’s also a great recipe to make with the kids, and can be made ahead and stored in the fridge for a couple of days. We’ve been eating it around the clock since it’s a great cold bite and uses the best of summer’s pink and red fruits. Just like Pinkie Pie, this fruit salad makes us feel “Yay yay so awesome!”
