Yogurt & Honey Fruit Cups

I made this as a simple snack for the kids, and it was a big hit that had them begging for more.  A little extra prep goes a long way on this one.  It's nice, because you could pretty much use whatever fruit or yogurt you have on hand.  This would also be a yummy way to start the day.

Yogurt & Honey Fruit Cups (Taste of Home)
4-1/2 cups cut-up fresh fruit (pears, apples, bananas, grapes, etc.)
3/4 cup (6 ounces) mandarin orange, vanilla or lemon yogurt
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 teaspoon grated orange peel
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
Divide fruit among six individual serving bowls. Combine the yogurt, honey, orange peel and extract; spoon over the fruit. Yield: 6 servings.

I feel like my Mom used to make a dish similar to this. It actually makes my mouth water just looking at the beautiful photo. I miss fruit!
