On a hot summer day there is nothing quite as refreshing and delicious as fresh fruit. Here is a healthy, colorful snack that is fun to make, portable and sure to bring some smiles. Rainbow fruit wands!
To create you will need:
- Wooden skewers
- Fruit in all the colors of the rainbow
- Cookie cutter
Here are some ideas of fruit to fill your rainbow:
Red fruit: watermelon, strawberries, red delicious apples, cherries, grapefruit, and raspberries
Orange fruit: Cantaloupe, orange, apricot, papaya
Yellow fruit: banana, lemon, peach, nectarine, mango, starfruit, golden delicious apple, pineapple
Green fruit: kiwi, honeydew melon, granny smith apple, concord grapes, lime, gooseberries
Blue fruit: blueberries, blackberries
Purple fruit: red grapes, purple grapes, plums, blackberries, boysenberries, dragon fruit
Wash and cut your fruit into cubes (with the exception of cherries, berries, and grapes) and place into separate bowls.
Cut a slice of watermelon and then push the cookie cutter into the slice. This will give you a cute topper for the fruit wand.
Thread fruit onto the skewer in the order of the rainbow.
Place your watermelon shape on the top and there you have it. Yummy and pretty rainbow wands!
For display it works well to push the skewers into half of a watermelon.
