Preparation Time: 5 minutes

Makes: 3 servings


  1. Slice fruit into shapes that resemble face features. Use your imagination and place the fruit where you would like to create a funny fruit face. 

  2. Try using low-fat granola for the hair for added crunch too. 

  3. Try also using low-fat plain yogurt if desired and flavour it with honey or cinnamon. 

  4. Use up fruit that you might have around. Store leftover cut up fruit from this recipe in the fridge and be sure to use it up as soon as possible.

1/2 pear

Apple   3 slices

3 berries

Banana  1 banana (18 slices)
Low fat vanilla or fruit flavoured yogurt 1 1/2 cups (375 mL)


1. Wash hands with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds. Clean all countertops and equipment used for food preparation.

2. Gently rinse strawberries, pear, apple, blueberries and banana under cool running water. Slice the fruit this way:

  • strawberries: cut each strawberry into 3 slices, totalling 6 slices
  • pear – cut it in half; cut one half into 6 slices
  • apple – cut it into quarters; slice one quarter into 3 slices
  • banana – cut into 18 slices

3. Divide yogurt among 3 plates and spread to form a small circle.

4. For eat plate, place 6 banana slices across the top of each circle for the hair, 2 slices of strawberries each for the eyes, 2 slices of pears each for the ears, one apple slice for the mouth and one blueberry for the nose. Repeat for the other two yogurt plates.

5. Use a fork to dip the fruit in the yogurt and enjoy!
