Ingredients

Sweet Lime Yogurt:

2 cups plain Greek yogurt

1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk 

Zest of 1/2 lime plus juice of 1 lime 

Fruit Cocktail:

Zest and juice of 2 large limes

1 cup sugar 

1 mango, peeled and cut into cubes 

1 papaya, peeled, seeded and cut into cubes 

1 small bunch green grapes, cut in half 

1 small jar maraschino cherries, drained and cut in half 

1/2 pineapple, peeled and cut into chunks 

1/2 honeydew melon, peeled, seeded and cut into chunks 

Directions

For the sweet lime yogurt: Mix together the yogurt, sweetened condensed milk and lime zest and juice in a medium bowl. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

For the fruit cocktail: Add the lime zest and juice to a pitcher with the sugar and 1 cup water. Stir until the sugar dissolves--you'll know this has happened when the liquid turns from cloudy to clear.

Add the mango, papaya, grapes, maraschino cherries, pineapple and melon to a large bowl. Gently mix the fruit with some of the lime syrup, adding more until it is as sweet as you would like it. (The lime syrup will keep for 1 month refrigerated.)

Serve with the sweet lime yogurt.
