Is frozen fruit salad healthy?
Yes and no. This salad contains many nutrient-rich fruits that are good for you and it’s fat free. However, with one cup of added sugar, two frozen juice concentrates and the naturally occurring sugar (fructose) in the fruits themselves, there is high sugar content overall (48 grams per serving). So this is a dish that is best enjoyed on an occasional basis. Here’s a lineup of healthy fruit recipes
you can alternate with this frozen version! If you’re watching your sugar intake, try one of these low-sugar desserts
to satisfy your sweet tooth. —Amy Glander, Taste of Home Book Editor
