  • Delicious & fun! Sweet, juicy, fresh fruit comes together in a way that pleases the eyes and the tastebuds. A fun way to present a little bit of everything for people to choose from.

Recipe Ingredients

Fine the full printable recipe with specific measurements below.

  • Pineapple chunks: Cutting a pineapple is probably the most time-consuming part of this recipe, so while you’re at it, check out my tips on how to cut a pineapple quickly and easily. Pick pineapple that is firm to the touch with a slight give, feels heavy and should have green leaves (not brown or dry). It should also smell delicious!
  • Strawberries: Make sure to wash them well and hull them. This means removing the green leafy ends. Not necessary, but you can cut them into strawberry chunks if you desire.
  • Blueberries: Wash well, and remove any stems or debris from the batch.
  • Grapes: Red grapes need to be washed but kept whole. No need to slice them.
  • Honeydew melon: Peeled and chopped to about the same size as the pineapple chunks.
  • String cheese: I prefer to use white mozzarella string cheese for the wiskcars just to have a neutral light color but go ahead and use orange if you prefer.

Variations

Here are a few types of fruit you can swap out color for color to keep the same design:

  • Green: Kiwi, green apples, or pears
  • Red: Raspberries, watermelon, or cranberries
  • Yellow: Bananas
  • Purple: Blackberries or raisins

How to Make an Easter Fruit Tray

Keep in mind, the amount of fruit you use will be determined by the size of your platter. I like to use a large rectangular platter and to keep it simple I’m using white so the colors pop.

Step by step collage making bunny fruit tray.
  1. Wash and dry your berries. If not, you’ll have juices running all over your tray. Run them under water then place them in a single layer on a paper towel to dry.
  2. Outline the bunny. In the center of your platter, create the outline of the face with pineapple chunks. It’s easier to work your way into the center that way you have a shape to work with. You’ll notice the bottom is rounder (hello chubby cheeks!) and the top is narrower. Fill in the space with the remaining pineapple chunks but leave holes where the eyes and bunny nose should be.
  3. Add the face. Fill the eyes with blueberries and the middle part of the ears with strawberries. Then place 1 strawberry under the eyes as a nose.
  4. Place the teeth and whiskers. The string cheese will be used as whiskers and teeth. You can take 1 inch off of one piece, slice that in half and use those for the teeth underneath the nose. Then peel apart the rest of the cheese into strips and arrange them stemming from the strawberry nose.
  5. Extra space? Fill the gaps and line the border along the top half of the platter with grapes and the bottom border with honeydew. Fill in the space between with blueberries.

Make Ahead

Make your Easter fruit tray up to 24 hours ahead, cover it with plastic wrap, and keep it in the fridge until you’re ready to serve. Get the kids involved. They’ll love it, even if it is just for quality control!

Dip It!

Serving a fruit tray for Easter is even better with a dip on the side! Choose from one of the following to turn this fruit into a feast!

Recipe Tips

  • If an Easter bunny fruit tray isn’t your style, turn it into an Easter egg instead. Adjust this platter to suit your preferences!
  • Keep this recipe for more than just Easter. It’s a welcome addition to any spring time celebration!
  • If you’re looking for a fun way to provide healthy easter snacks to your toddlers, preschoolers, or school-aged children, this is a great idea!

Recipe FAQs

Is it cheaper to buy an Easter fruit tray or make one?

It’s pretty much a given that most things are cheaper to make at home. This Easter fruit tray is no exception! You can always use what you have to reduce waste and avoid having to run out to buy anything else.

Plus, use what’s on sale or buy local produce at to avoid extra costs.

How far in advance can you cut fruit for an Easter fruit tray?

Make it up to 24 hours in advance. Make sure to cover it and keep it in the fridge. If using anything that oxidizes like apples, bananas, or pears, a squirt of lemon juice will help to keep them from browning.

What else can I add to this Easter fruit tray?

You can cut out pineapple, melon, and other larger fruit into fun shapes using cookie cutters with an Easter theme. Add small bowls of nuts, chocolates, and candied almonds and turn it into an Easter charcuterie board instead!

Equipment

  • Platter for serving

Ingredients 

  • 4 cups pineapple chunks
  • 2 pints blueberries
  • 1 pint strawberries , hulled
  • 1 packet string cheese
  • 3 cups grapes
  • 4 cups honeydew melon , peeled and chopped

Instructions

  • In the center of a large rectangle platter, create the outline of bunny face using pineapple. I like to start with outline first and then fill in the space. Create eyes and ears by leaving the space empty.
  • Fill in the eyes with blueberries and the ears with strawberries. Place 1 strawberry under the eyes as a nose.
  • Cut a 1-inch piece off the end of the string cheese. Slice it in half to make 2 teeth. Peel the remaining string cheese into strips and arrange as whiskers stemming from the strawberry nose. Place the 2 teeth under the nose.
  • Line the border along top half of the platter with grapes. Fill in the space between the grapes and the top half of the bunny with blueberries.
  • Fill the remaining bottom half with honeydew.

Notes

Fruit dip: This platter goes great with our strawberry fruit dip or our toffee caramel dip
Make ahead: This fruit tray can be made 24 hours ahead of time. Cover the dip, if using, with plastic and refrigerate until ready to serve.
