This Citrus Fruit Salad is delicious and light! The perfect way to keep your New Year’s goals of healthy eating going strong! Plus, citrus is in season and cheap right now!

You could also substitute your favorite other citrus like tangelos, oranges, or tangerines if you so desire!
Citrus Fruit Salad
1 can of chunk pineapple (save juice)
2 Tablespoons Sugar Free Vanilla Pudding mix
4 Tablespoons pineapple juice (or orange juice)
Peel clementines and divide into sections. Place in large bowl. Peel grapefruit and cut into bite-size pieces. Chop banana as well and add to bowl. Drain pineapple, reserving juice and add to other fruit. Stir pudding mix, pineapple juice and lemon juice into fruit until thoroughly mixed. Serve chilled. This looked so pretty all layered nicely in the bowl before I added the other ingredients. I would also say that next time I make this I may reduce the amount of grapefruit. The one I got was quite tart and after a few days seemed to overpower some of the other flavors. Not a big deal if you love grapefruit or if you are eating all the fruit salad right away. And some grapefruit are sweeter than others. (Not sure why that is.) Anyways… Enjoy this healthy citrus fruit salad as a side, snack, dessert or breakfast treat! What is your favorite citrus fruit? I’m OBSESSED with clementines!
