Kid tested Easy Fruit Salad Recipe
If you’re looking for an easy fruit salad recipe that your kids will love, look no further! This fruit salad is the perfect summer snack, or part of a healthy meal any time of day! We also call this recipe “Hawaii fruit salad” because of the pineapple. My kids are completely obsessed with Hawaii, half of that is because my husband and I frequently travel to Hawaii, and half of it is thanks to Moana. If you have little kids, you know what I am talking about!
This easy fruit salad recipe is perfect if you need to throw something together quickly. It’s no secret that I am no food blogger or chef, but my kids raved about how awesome this recipe was. Guess what? It took just a few minutes to put together! The hardest part is making the kids wait until it’s finished chilling. They will want to eat it right away.

We tried several variations of fruit salad, including with yogurt and jello, but this simple recipe was the favorite! This recipe is allergy-friendly, dairy free, gluten free, vegan, and very healthy! Feel free to substitute your own favorite fruits, we also tried kiwi and banana but preferred it without. Make sure to wash your fruit well before using it,I wrote a blog post about The best way to wash fruit!
