Tropical Fruit Salad

When I was doing some research on what sort of foods to serve I ran across this recipe for Tropical Fruit Salad, and it sounded really good. Since this was a family birthday, there was plenty of family members willing to help out. Now I had my hands full with the BBQ pit, Jennie's Grandma offered to fix something and was willing to fix what ever I wanted her to, which I couldn't pass up. She did a wonderful job and it was thoroughly enjoyed by all.

1 medium mango, seeded peeled and cubed
11 ounces mandarin orange sections, drained
2 Kiwis peeled, halved lengthwise and sliced
1 cup tiny marshmallows
8 ounces carton vanilla yogurt
3 bananas, peeled and halved lengthwise
1/2 cup toasted coconut

Combine all the fruit in a bowl, together with the marshmallows and the yogurt. Cover and chill for 2-4 hours. When ready to serve, cut each banana half crosswise into 2 pieces, cut lengthwise again to split the banana. Place 2 banana pieces on a dessert plate. Stir half of the coconut into the fruit mixture. then spoon on top of the bananas. Sprinkle the remaining coconut on top. Drizzle with honey on top. Makes 6 servings.
