Call this recipe cereal without milk, yogurt on steroids or a fruit smoothie waiting to happen.

I see it as a salad. Sliced fresh fruit served over a bed of yogurt with an orange and honey dressing.

Of course no salad is complete without crunchy croutons scattered on top!

And this salad has the best croutons ever! Captain Crunch cereal!!!

Now I can’t take full credit for using the captain’s cereal as croutons. This tweet by @EmilyGundi from Grand Valley State University sparked the idea.

As the captain says on the box, it makes this Yogurt Fruit Salad “CRUNCHARIFIC”!
