Muffin Tin Monday: Fresh Fruit and Dip

It's Muffin Tin Monday!

Sometimes Alexandra can be a picky eater but one food that will never go to waste in our house is fresh fruit. Each time we go grocery shopping we stock up on fresh fruit and a lot of it disappears within the week. In fact, now that I have two kids who love fresh fruit a quart of strawberries have been known to disappear within a day!

So today for her muffin tin meal I decided to make her a tin of fresh fruit and I threw together a fruit dip made out of vanilla yogurt and cream cheese with a little added cherry juice to make it pink.

As I gave Alexandra her meal Camden, who is almost 18 months, sat down for some fruit too. Well he wanted something but I wasn't sure what. He kept pointing at the table and I kept handing him things like his water, fork, etc. I guess what he wanted was a muffin tin like Alex. So I gave him a little muffin cup so he could feel like he was participating too. I guess I can consider this his first muffin tin meal. I started making them for Alex when she was 2 so I guess it's about time to include Camden in the fun too!

 The picture is sideways but I guess it doesn't really matter anyways! So we did  yellow, blue, and red fruit - bananas and pineapple, grapes and blueberries, and fruit dip topped with a cherry and strawberries. And Mickey Mouse and friends picks because that's all I have left! Time to do some shopping!!!

Fresh fruit is a big hit in our home, too! Thanks for sharing :)

That looks super yummy and I love that you added cherry juice to make the dip. What a great idea.
