A simple threading of sliced fruit turns a healthy snack into a simple, delicious twirl-y treat in just minutes!

Ingredients

  • 1 Lil Snappers citrus (cara cara, moro, or navel suggested), cut into cartwheels*
  • 1 Lil Snappers apple (of choice), cored and cut crosswise into approximate 3/8” to ½” rounds
  • 1 Lil Snappers pear (of choice), cored and cut crosswise into approximate 3/8” to ½” rounds
  • 1 banana, peeled and cut into approximate 1” slices

Directions

  1. Slide a bottom end piece of apple or pear onto each skewer (a plastic straw works well), flesh-side up, to serve as “base” of fruit stack. (Note: a length of ribbon, snuggly tied just below base of fruit, will help secure stack in position on skewer.)
  2. Continue threading fruit onto skewer using banana slices to separate apple, pear and citrus rounds.

 

* Turn unpeeled fruit on its side and cut a thin slice from both ends; discard ends. Then slice fruit crosswise into approximate 3/8” to ½” wheels.
