Kiwi Fruit Christmas Tree Platter
Christmas is just around the corner and we are getting excited here in our house! We wanted to make a fun and festive fruit platter for a holiday party and came up with this Kiwi Fruit Christmas Tree Platter. Bright green kiwi fruit, with festive pomegranate, and fresh blueberries make this the perfect healthy addition to the table this season!
This fun kiwi fruit tree came together on a whim. So my kids had been scrolling online when they came across some fruit trees . We knew we had to come up with one of our own! We had bought a container of kiwi at the store and knew we could put them to good use. I must admit, I had my doubts at first, but this Kiwi Fruit Christmas Tree Platter turned out to be gorgeous and was a hit with our friends and family.
We had friends at the house and their kids had never tried kiwi. I can tell you they are 100% fans after testing out this tree. As pretty as it is, this platter really will brighten up your holiday spread. The “Christmas Tree” is easy to make and of course delicious to eat. We turned on some holiday classic music and had a blast making this as a family. If you want to have a new family activity this holiday season, make a fruit tree platter!
We cut up our kiwi, had some pomegranate arils and blueberries on hand for decorating and a pear made for the perfect star and trunk to our tree. Learn all about kiwi and how to pick prep and store it here.
Nutrition Tip: A single kiwi packs nearly as much immune-strengthening vitamin C as a medium orange. They also contain an enzyme called actinidin that may help digestion.
Don’t have pomegranate arils or blueberries on hand? Use dried fruit, nuts or any other chopped fruit to decorate your kiwi tree.
