St. Patrick’s Day Snack!

In our March issue, we featured a really neat fruit rainbow and pot of gold. With St. Paddy’s day coming up quickly, you’ll want to make this with your kids!

This is a quick and healthy treat my kids and I make every St. Patrick’s Day!

Fruit Rainbow Ingredients:
Strawberries
Oranges
Pineapple pieces
Kiwi (or green grapes if your kids don’t like Kiwi)
Blueberries
Grapes (preferably “Red” grapes because of their dark color)
Wooden Skewers

Pot of Gold Ingredients:
8 oz. of Whipped Cream
8 oz. of Vanilla Yogurt
Yellow Food Coloring

Directions:
In a medium mixing bowl beat the whipped cream and vanilla yogurt until
combined. Mix in food coloring until you reach your desired shade of “gold”.
Refrigerate until ready to serve.

While your “gold” is chilling, wash and cut your fruit. Add the fruit onto the
skewers in the following order: strawberry, orange, pineapple, kiwi, blueberry,
and grape. (When combined in this order the fruit looks like a rainbow.)

Finally, eat up and enjoy!
