Easter Fruit Arrangement Idea: Bunny Fruit Platter

Want a healthy Easter recipe that is as cute as it is delicious? This Easter fruit arrangement of a bunny’s head is loaded with apples, grapes, cantaloupe, oranges, strawberries, and kiwi is sure to be the hit of your Easter party. Party guests trying to stick to their New Year’s resolutions will appreciate this holiday recipe that will allow them to indulge their sweet tooth but without consuming chocolate bunnies and caramel filled eggs.customffmEaster Fruit Arrangement Idea: Bunny Fruit Platter

I don’t know about you, but Easter falls at a tough time for me. It comes just far enough after the holidays that my sweet tooth is starting to re-emerge and demand soothing but close enough to my New Years resolution of being healthier that anything more than the tiniest indulgence leaves me feeling guilty. Am I alone here? To help ward off all those chocolate bunnies and their caramel filled eggs, I came up with this Easter fruit arrangement idea.

Not only is this Easter fruit arrangement a good idea for me (or anyone trying to not eat their weight in chocolate), but also for my little man. I’m perfectly fine with him having some sugar, but there’s a tendency to go overboard on holidays like Easter. I’d prefer if he wasn’t hoping around like the Energizer Bunny at the end of the day!

This Easter fruit arrangement, shaped like an adorable bunny I might add, is a great Easter snack whether you’re staying home with your family or celebrating elsewhere. With all the different varieties of fruit included (6), there’s sure to be something even a picky eater will enjoy in this Easter fruit arrangement.

Tip: You can easily substitute one fruit (or multiple fruits) for something your family likes better. Don’t worry, I won’t get offended! 🙂

If you spend Easter at a family member’s house or church event, this Easter fruit arrangement looks fairly impressive, so I highly recommend whipping it up and taking it along. Plus, it ensures they’ll be something healthy for you to munch on.

I know that Easter can be a busy day, especially if you have kids who are dying to hunt for eggs and gift-filled baskets, but this Easter fruit arrangement is pretty quick to make. What takes the longest is arranging your apple pieces into the shape of a bunny. My suggestion? Don’t be a perfectionist about it. I know, I know, it can be tempting to spend a ton of time messing with the pieces in this Easter fruit arrangement, but just get an approximation of the bunny and move on. After all, you should be spending quality time with your family, right?

1 strawberry
3 cuties (oranges)
