“Easy, tasty AND low fat healthy, this can be served at many occasions: brunch, showers, picnics and potlucks. Also a nice change to the standard "fruit cup" usually served before wedding reception and holiday dinners. Serve as a dessert or as a snack, which is kid-pleasing too. DO NOT serve to any child under the age of 1, due to the honey ingredient (or omit the honey, if so). A make-ahead no cook dish, cook time is for chill time. Serves 8-10, please double recipe for a larger crowd. This recipe is courtesy of Southern Living.”
