This recipe is as versatile as it is colourful, making for a great quick breakfast, an afternoon snack, or even a dessert.

Move over, Skittles, because you’re about to taste the rainbow for real. From red strawberries or raspberries, orange mango or nectarines, yellow fresh pineapple, green kiwis or grapes, and violet blueberries or blackberries, you’ve got the whole rainbow in just one tasty little cup.
I always make this fruit salsa with unsweetened, organic Greek yogurt. Even if it is low in fat, Greek yogurt offers a rich and unctuous texture, ideal for healthy snacks or breakfast! However, you can feel free to use any kind of yogurt you like with this recipe. A coconut flavoured yogurt, for example, will bring out the shaved coconut garnish and sweeten the deal.

You can also choose to add a little extra kick with lime zest, lemon juice, or chopped fresh mint leaves.
