I have such an easy party entertaining idea for you today- a rainbow fruit platter! A fruit platter is perfect to bring along for a breakfast, a brunch and a lunch. We all know the food rule, we eat with our eyes first and the color and beauty of a fruit platter rainbow will make every bite tastier!
And, it is super easy to make, all you need are the colors and here are some ideas for you:
Red fruits- cherries, raspberries, red plums, strawberries, pomegranate seeds, watermelon
Orange fruits- oranges, clementines, tangerines, cantaloupe
Yellow fruits- apricots, mango, pineapple (I would not use banana because it turns brown very easily once exposed to air)
Green fruits- grapes, melon, kiwi,
I kind of blend all these together:
Blue, violet, indigo fruits- blueberries (which my kids ate all of before I made the fruit platter…) blackberries, red grapes, purple plums
I garnished with some mint leaves, sweetened coconut chunks and candied ginger.
The hard part is cutting up everything, I thought it was fun making the rainbow colors part though =)
