HEALTHY VALENTINES DAY TREATS

Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays as a mom, because it’s a fun day to shower my kids with love and affection. We may start the morning with a healthy cute Valentines breakfast recipe of heart shaped cranberry muffins. And sometimes I surprise them with whole wheat Valentine sandwich cookies.

But one of my favorite healthy Valentines Day treats is a simple fruit tray with a heart in the center.

With a light protein packed main dish like whole roasted salmon, we sit around the table talking about our day and snacking on fruit. The fruit tray transitions with us from dinner into table games or family movie night.

And yes, the four of us can definitely polish this fruit tray off together!

VALENTINES DAY TREATS FOR SCHOOL

This easy fruit tray is also perfect for school parties. Both my kids go to the same school, so I signed up for the healthy snack for each kids’ class. I love that I can get all the berries at Costco and divide them in half to make an easy fruit tray for each class.

The bright colors, the patterns, and the heart shape in the center make it a fun attractive treat. The kids are so excited to eat it, they don’t even realize it’s health food!

EASY FRUIT TRAY HEART

Of course, what makes this a Valentines fruit tray is the heart. And the easiest way to make a heart in the center is to use a big heart shaped cookie cutter. I suggest using one that’s 4-5 inches big.

You can see in the video below that the last step is filling the cookie cutter with pomegranate seeds and then carefully removing it. This way all the other berries are holding the heart shape in place when you pull the cookie cutter out.

You may want to adjust the margins slightly once the cookie cutter is out, but it’s a lot easier than shaping the heart from scratch.

Also, did I mention my favorite part of this easy fruit tray? NO KNIVES!

The only prep work is washing your berries. Seriously…EASY.
