Olympic Snack: Fruit Torches

The Olympics are coming! And to celebrate, my little one and I decided to create a delicious, Olympics-inspired snack: Fruit torches! Not only are these absolutely delicious and perfect for any time, they’re also really easy to put together. Which makes them a great way to get your kiddos in the kitchen!
Here’s what you’ll need to make your own fruit and dip Olympic torches:
- pointy-bottomed ice cream cones
- whipped cream (sweetened to your liking)
- your favourite yogurt
OK, let’s get started! First off, prepare your "flames" by cutting both the pineapple and nectarine into thin, but sturdy slices. When done, set them aside.
Next, prepare the fruit dip. This part couldn’t be easier as there’s no real recipe required! All you need is relatively equal amounts of whipped cream, yogurt, and fresh raspberries and you’re good to go. Just use the back of a fork to smush the raspberries until mostly smooth...
And then add in the whipped cream and yogurt. Give the mixture a good stir and you’re done!
OK, now to assemble the torches! Since pointy-bottomed cones can be a bit of a challenge to work with, find a jar or bottle that will hold the cones upright as your little one works — this will make the process so much easier! With the cone properly propped, start by filling it with a generous amount of fruit dip.
Next, gently place your pineapple and nectarine slices vertically into the cone to resemble flames. This step can obviously be done however you choose, but we found that our flames looked most realistic when we had the tallest fruit slices in the centre and the smaller ones out along the edges.
That’s it! Now turn on the games and serve your fruit torches immediately.
Enjoy and go Canada!
