I don't know a single kid out there who doesn't love The Cat in the Hat! He's been a children's classic throughout the years and kids love his clever rhymes. It's no wonder that my kids love the television show The Cat in the Hat Knows A Lot About That! This Cat in the Hat fruit snack is not only fun, but it's super healthy too. Using only two ingredients and no fancy tools, anyone can whip this hat snack up in minutes. Here's how I did it: What You Need
- 1 whole banana, peeled
- A handful of strawberries (about 5 or 6 large ones)
- A sharp kitchen knife
- Using your knife, slice your whole banana into thin round slices. Set aside.
- Grab your strawberries, and slice them into round slices, slicing from the bottom of the strawberry up to the top. Discard the green top. Repeat for all your strawberries.
- Start arranging your fruit on a plate. You want to start at the bottom of your plate with a row of banana slices which is slightly bigger than the other rows will be. This will be the bottom brim of the hat. Next add a row of sliced strawberries, followed by another row of sliced bananas, followed by another row of sliced strawberries, another row of sliced bananas and finally a top row of sliced strawberries.
Talk about easy--and tasty too! If you have a little Cat in the Hat fan in your household, they're going to love this sweet snack. Enjoy!
