Summer is the perfect time for fruit and for ice cream. Well this doesn’t include a lot of actually fruit more like ice cream that looks like fruit. Does fruit flavor ice cream count as fruit? I’d say it does! I made cute little fruit ice cream cones that look like watermelons and pineapples. Two of my favorite cute fruits! Confession I didn’t have a ton of ice cream because everyone in my family ate the ice cream before I could use it. Don’t they know prop ice cream when they see it! They didn’t turn out as full as I would like because of the lack of ice cream but you get the idea.

For summer I love having desserts with fruit in them. I also like a simple dessert. These white chocolate covered fruit kabobs with rainbow sprinkles are perfect for a simple refreshing dessert! I chose rainbow colored fruits to give a pop of color. I also didn’t put all the kinds of fruit on one kabob because some people like different fruits. You could do a bunch of combinations of fruit too to give variety. I like them separated and how they look all lined up by color. I also toyed around with the idea of colorful candy melts for the chocolate drizzle but decided white chocolate with colorful sprinkles would look good. If you have a theme and a certain color you want to use you can add a colorful chocolate drizzle! I was thinking of orange, pink or another bright color. I also think colorful sprinkles are a nice touch for parties!
I’m always trying to make fruits and vegetables more enticing for my daughter. She likes fruit, vegetables she wont do unless there is ranch involved. I’ve found she likes fruit better when I make it into something cute. I also like to use candy eyes whenever I can. Everything is cuter with candy eyes. You don’t have to put candy eyes on all of the fruit like I did(I know it’s a bit much) but a few of them Is cute! I thought for summer under the sea fruit would be cute for fun and parties.
Keira starts school this week! Last year she would eat everything in her school lunch besides the fruits and vegetables. I am struggling with getting her to eat fruits an vegetables. Especially the vegetables, anything green she will avoid like the plague! Fruit I can work with a bit. I wanted to make her fruit for school lunches fun with silly faces and animals. For some reason candy eyes just make any food more fun. If I have to add a dot of candy to get my kid to eat fruit I will!
For the silly faces I just cut an orange in half, put on candy eyes, used a blueberry for the nose and half a strawberry cut in a fun shape for the mouth. I then wrapped it in press and seal to keep it together in her lunch box. You can also cut up the orange in slices and hold it together with plastic wrap.
