Are you looking for a healthy and fun treat? This Fruit Train is loaded with fresh fruit – and is perfect for kids who love trains! 

Once summer arrives, we’re fresh fruit crazy in our house. There’s nothing like the taste of sweet watermelon and other fruits that are in season to have us craving and wanting more. I swear I’m at the store 2 times per week just buying a different type of fruit. 

And while it’s totally fine to eat fruits just like they are, why not have some fun and play with the fruit a bit? We like to be creative with food because it’s fun and a simple way to explore our creativity. Even more than that, it’s something that brings us together as a family. When the kids can help out in the kitchen, it’s a time that we’ll cherish and remember forever.

The best part about making this fruit train is that the end result is that it’s going to be gobbled up fast! It’s just too good to sit and admire for too long!

Can you use frozen fruit for this fruit train? 

I suppose for certain parts you could, but I don’t recommend doing so. If you can use fresh fruit, do it. The flavor is really, really good.

These fruit trains are so much fun for train-themed birthdays, weekend sleepovers, or just a fun weekend treat to enjoy at home.

These are great during the summer months when it’s super hot outside because the fruit train is so refreshing to bite into! 

If you’re ready to try a whole new spin on eating fruit, make the fruit into a train! I’m serious when I say that the kids are going to love being a part of such a fun and delicious process.
