Pineapple-Melon Flowers

Pack in your 5-a-day with these fruity flowers made out of pineapple & melon.

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: No cook
Makes: 12
Great for:  18 Months-2 Years
1 large ripe pineapple, all skin removed
1 cantaloupe melon, halved and skinned


7 1/2 flower shaped cookie cutter
round melon baller
round cookie cutter, the same diameter as the melon baller
12 wooden skewers
12 green straws
  1. Cut the pineapple into round slices around 1cm (generous ¼ inch) thick. Use the flower-shaped cookie cutter to cut 1 flower from each slice. It may be easier to press the cutter into the pineapple then cut around the shape with a small sharp knife. Use the round cutter to cut a hole in the centre of each flower.
  2. Pat the pineapple flowers with kitchen towel to remove excess juice. Carve 12 balls of melon. Make the flower centre by pushing a melon ball through the hole cut in each pineapple piece. Thread each flower onto a skewer (going through the pineapple and the melon) to secure. Cover the skewer with a green straw.
