St Patrick’s Day Rainbow Fruit Platter

Jump to Recipe

How about this super simple St Patrick’s Day Rainbow Fruit Platter? It is so easy to throw together and so healthy. It’s a nice option with all the super sweet goodies being passed around during holidays. Here is the order of colors in the rainbow, so you won’t have to google that separate from this post- Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet.

I start by making the dip. It’s simple as well, mix the cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla. I like to beat it until it is light and fluffy.

Next, start prepping your fruit. We are coming into the time of year when more fruits are readily available, and most from the US or Canada. Only my grapes came from Chile. So, that’s not too bad.

I cut everything into bite sized pieces. I think it makes it easier for serving, plus it makes the rainbow look so pretty.

Arrange your fruit on a platter or round plate like I did. It was only the boys and I, so I didn’t need to big platter.

I had to grab a photo of the grapes, look at how pretty they are with the light hitting them. There is something really satisfying about food photography. I am grateful I am finally getting better at it.

Once you have created your rainbow, add the fruit dip on each end of the rainbow. I have seen people use rolos at each end of the rainbow, but I was trying to keep it healthy, so the dip was a better option.

Here are the fruits I used- strawberries, oranges, pineapple, kiwi, blueberries and red grapes. I think it is the perfect mix.
