I’m in the mood for yum! Have you ever seen a more colorful and inviting selection of fruit? Because I sure haven’t! This Rainbow Breakfast Fruit Tray is so pretty you may not want to eat it! But because it’s so healthy and sweet – it will be irresistible.
What’s great about this recipe is that it’s all about assembling and not about cooking. It’s raw, vegan, pretty enough for a party. This Rainbow Breakfast Fruit Tray would be the perfect dish to bring to a pot luck! So let’s get to making it.
First, you need fruit in every color of the rainbow. You need red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple! When prepping this Rainbow Breakfast Fruit Tray, find an array of all your colors. And try to find multiple fruit of each color – not just one. For example we included limes and kiwi for green!
Second, you need fruit that’s big, small, and every size in between. Part of what makes this tray impossible to stop staring at is how there are big pieces, small pieces, tall pieces and short pieces of fruit. We created the feeling of abundance by adding lots of layers!
Third, you need very ripe fruit. It’s hard to make this Rainbow Breakfast Fruit Tray when fruit is not in season because we would end up with a tray that is very sour. And since we’ve included grapefruit, limes, and other tart fruit, it’s important to balance it with plenty of sweet. That’s why it’s important to include sweet apples, peaches, mango, and berries that are in season and ripe.
Last, cut your fruit into lots of different shapes. Notice the fun chevron pattern in the kiwi? Or how we included both sliced and whole strawberries? We created slices, cubes, halves, whole, and a pineapple bowl too! We created a bit of everything.
