Can we prove reality?

I heard someone make an assertion that *'We cannot really prove that there is reality.'*. *'Reality'* here would mean **the universe and everything in it**. You could look at an apple and think its an apple but it could *really* be something else, and we cannot really prove its "appleness". My initial answer was the mere fact that having a notion for reality is proof enough that there is such a thing. My question is: Is that a sufficient answer? Is there a proof that reality exists? Or is the question a valid one to begin with?
