Fruit Rainbow with Fruit Dip Clouds

Standard

Celebrate St Patrick’s Day with your own healthy and edible rainbow!

IMG_4087

I made mine with the colors in order (for all our little learners).

1. Purple–Grapes

2. Blue–Blueberries

3. Green–Grapes again (kiwi would work too)

4. Yellow–Pineapple

5. Orange–Orange slices

6. Red–Strawberries

The clouds are fruit dip made of 4 oz fat-free cream cheese and 7 oz marshmallow creme mixed together. (Cool whip or marshmallow creme by itself would probably be more fluffy.)

A yummy way to get festive!

Now where to find that pot of gold… 🙂
