Mother Nature's Best

Mother Nature's best - fresh fruit Skewers. Ripe. Sweet. Satisfying.

There is of course no recipe for this. But, this is a just a really simple and fun way of serving fruits. Especially for kids. I made this also as a part of lunch for the play date my daughter had with her 7 friends. Just serving the fruits on a skewer made it all colorful and appealing to the kids. And they loved it and ate it all up. I had to warn them to not poke the sticks up their throats though and to remove the fruit with their hands and then pop it in their mouths. And also not to poke others with their sticks! And not to have fights on the table with the sticks as swords. And not to..oh well...maybe next time I'll just put them in a bowl! No - actually it was fun!

You could also do this for a regular party with both adults and kids - Everyone loves fruits! You can also make them into the shape of a bouquet. Use a small watermelon to hold them together at the bottom.

Just a tip - if you have just a bunch of adult friends for a party - try to spice up the fruits with some salt and red chilli powder or chat masala and serve the same way. Pick your fruits accordingly.

Just pick your favorite fresh ripe fruits. I used Pineapples, Watemelon, Mango, Strawberries and green Grapes.

Cut them into small squares or any other shapes and move them to skewers. Try to keep the same order of fruits so when all the skewers are done - they look nice - maybe its just the over obsessed Virgo in me doing this!

Enjoy and Peace out!

    Srivalli - I actually did not bother to give the kids any rules - I let them do what they want - as long as no one was hurt! I do all my rules with my daughter and she keeps whining that its not fair!
