This edible wreath is a healthy afterschool snack for kids or a delicious treat for anyone who enters your door this season!
4 Kiwi fruit
Peel and slice kiwi (tip: a mandolin is a great tool for slicing). Arrange the slices in a wreath shape on a plate. Chop one strawberry and use it as wreath garnish (as shown in photo). Create a bow by cutting the other strawberry in half (keep stem on); place on wreath. Optional: Scatter whole cashews as “pine cone” embellishment (and extra protein).
Did you know? The origin of the Christmas wreath dates back to ancient times when Romans hung wreaths as a sign of victory or importance. Today, many Christmas wreaths are made with evergreen branches, pine cones and a traditional red bow. They represent love, strength and new life.
