Edible fruit bouquets are a colorful way to serve fruit.
These are easy to make and fun to eat. When I made this edible fruit bouquet my son kept asking when we could eat it. Normally, he doesn’t eat much fruit without my coaxing him. But, he wanted to eat the fruit in this edible bouquet. When I served it at dinner time, he eagerly ate quite a bit of the bouquet. And he enjoyed it.
So, if you have kids in your house, try making this bouquet and see how eagerly they eat their fruit.
Besides being attractive to kids, adults always enjoy how pretty and fun these fruit bouquets are. You can serve your edible fruit bouquet with a dip if you like. I like to use vanilla flavored yogurt or Greek yogurt as a dip.
There are so many fruits you can use in your edible fruit bouquet.
In addition to the cantaloupe, pineapple and grapes shown in these photos, you can use honeydew, watermelon, casaba or any other melon. To vary the shapes you can use crinkle cut wedges of melons, or orange slices. Strawberries, raspberries and kumquats can be skewered and added to a bouquet. You can even skewer and add chocolate dipped strawberries as I showed in the free video in a blog article earlier this month. You can slice kiwis or cut them in wedges and add them to a bouquet.
You can approach the creation of your edible fruit bouquet a couple of ways. You can go to your market and use the best available fruit in season. Or you can decide on your color theme in advance and then go looking for the fruits that fit your theme. You could go with vibarnt reds and purples featuring blackberries, red grapes, and strawberries. For a bright orange and green, you could use kumquats, orange wedges and honeydew and kiwi. Of you could go with the pastel colors of cantaloupe, pineapple and honeydew. Let you imagination be your guide.
Another fun spring idea is to make an edible fruit bouquet using a colorful Easter basket or a small decorative flower pot instead of a vase. Adding a butterfly carved from a turnip to add that special touch to your fruit bouquet.
You can even make edible bouquets using a variety of vegetables and serve them with savory dipping sauces.
As you are probably already aware, you can order these types of fruit bouquets made for you. The advantages of making an edible fruit bouquet yourself is that is can cost significantly less and you can make sure the fruits are ripe and delicious. Another advantage is that when you make one of these edible bouquets to give as a gift or bring to a potluck, your recipient will feel special knowing that you took the time to make this yourself. And, besides that, you will have all sorts of compliments coming your way.
