What a cute idea. So colorful and easy to do. I love orange and vanilla together.
Wow this is an easy idea. That vanilla yogurt is an awesome touch! The orange and vanilla flavors are always good together and watermelon sounds great too.
I was impressed too with the addition of the vanilla yogurt. I bet it adds a creaminess to the orange and watermelon.
