The edible fruit Christmas tree is more than a party snack. Fruity, delicious and healthy, it is also a decorative highlight on the festive table..
Dark yellow mango stars, bright strawberry-colored tree decorations, leaves of grapes, kiwi and parsley. On top and in the foliage shine crisp puff pastry stars. If you like, you can also dust your Christmas tree with white with coconut shavings.
The Christmas tree made of fruit looks a bit like a lush, baroque work of art. Luckily, though, you don’t need as much skill as the great masters of the time to create this treat ?.
Carrot and apple you absolutely need for your fruit Christmas tree. Beyond that, you can use whatever fruit varieties you like for your tree. Make sure to use a lot of green fruit so that the Christmas tree also looks like a fir tree.
Red as a color contrast to the green leaves looks especially nice. I used red grapes and strawberries. Stars cut out of dragon fruit also look great!
Running out of time? Instead of crispy puff pastry stars, you can also cut out yellow stars from mango or a pineapple and stick them on the top of the Christmas tree and between the leaves.
On the ingredient list, you’ll find the fruit listed that was exactly enough for my two Christmas trees.
Working time: at least 1h per Christmas tree.
Cut out stars from the ready-made puff pastry with a cookie cutter, brush them with beaten egg yolk and bake them in the oven until crispy.
Apple and carrot form the base for the fruit Christmas tree. Cut a circle around the style of the apple so that you can stick the fat end of your carrot into it and place the structure on the serving platter. If the apple doesn’t stand up on its own on the serving platter, cut the end with the flower straight off. Now break toothpicks apart and insert them all around the apple and carrot. The further up you stick the toothpick pieces into the structure, the shorter they should get.
Now peel the mango and the kiwi and cut them into 1 cm thick slices. Cut out stars and set them aside.
Now stick grapes, kiwi slices and stars and strawberries all around the toothpicks. Between these fixed fruits you can place other fruits. Then stick the mango stars, kiwi stars and puff pastry stars all around the tree and on the top.
Finally, pluck the parsley into clumps and stick them into cutouts all around the tree.
Extra tip: Drizzle the juice of two passion fruit at a time over the tree and sprinkle with coconut flakes.
Have fun decorating the Christmas tree from fruit and bon appétit!
