I love playing with my food and the holidays always provides the perfect opportunity for us to get in the kitchen, let our imaginations soar and experiment on many levels.  One of my favorite Valentine’s shares is our Strawberry Rosebud Garden served with a simple Lemonade Fruit Dip. 

It’s great for classroom Valentine’s parties, birthday parties or it’s fun on a smaller scale for an after school surprise. 

When I have served this treat at school, I have brought a garden of flowers with one stemmed stick labeled for each child and then I bring extra fruit on the side so that they can continue to skew more for themselves.  I have also discovered that since it’s not uncommon for things to hit the floor, and there’s always a ‘NO five second rule’ at schools, that extra garden skewers on the side are not such a bad idea. 

Lemonade Fruit Dip

Ingredients

  • 2 oz. frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 1/3 cup low fat vanilla yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon lemonade concentrate, frozen
  • ¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Instructions

    1. Fold the whipped topping, vanilla yogurt, lemonade concentrate and vanilla together. 

    2. Serve chilled and with fruit.

Whipped Topping Trade:  The whipped topping can be substituted with Greek Vanilla Yogurt.

Making a Strawberry Rose Bud Garden:  These simple, but fun fruit bites are perfect for birthday Parties, gatherings and/or classroom treats.

Fresh Strawberries

Cookie or Lollipop Sticks (or skewers)

Floral Tape

Green construction paper

Green Styrofoam Block

Marker

  1. Rinse the strawberries and slice off the greens so that you have a flat edge to the strawberry.  The strawberries will serve as our rose buds in the garden.
  2. Cut leaves with a stem out of the construction paper.  Note: I use the leaves for the kids to label their names if we are making them together.
  3. Wrap the stem with the floral tap and stop about ¾ of the way up the stem to insert the leaf and continue the wrapping leaving a portion of the stick exposed for the strawberry.
  4. Top the stick with the strawberry and place it into the foam base.
  5. It isn’t necessary but you can create grass from construction paper and add it to the Styrofoam block.

Cookie or Lollipop Sticks:  I typically purchase the 8, 6 and 4 inch sticks to create a staggered garden affect.
