Sunday Fun with Fruits & Veggies

I saw a picture of these on facebook this morning that was taken from the Canadian Family blog & I couldn’t wait to make my own version.  Here are my fruit fishies in a sea of carrots & kale.   So cute, so fun and so yummy!  We ate them with our morning smoothie.   Chop up some fruit & let your kiddos play!

Fruit Fishies

1 orange, sliced for the fishy bodies

1 small carrot, sliced into rounds for the tail

2 cranberries, sliced thin for the eyes

1 handful of pomegranate seeds, for the fishy lips

1 handful of blueberries for the eyes & bubbles

1 slice of pear cut into little triangles for fins

a few pieces of kale for the sea weed

Turn all of the above ingredients into fruit fish on your plate & eat up!

Our hearts go out to all who have suffered, and are still suffering, in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. With the help of our wonderful social media followers, we have assembled recommendations for a Natural Disaster Survival Kit made specifically for vegans! Be sure to stock up on the following items before Mother Nature strikes again.
