Pea Pods made from Fruit

Summer is in full swing around here! The kids are in a few day camps, the days are 90+ degrees and humid, the cicadas are singing their hot summer songs - and I'm loving it all.  It's hard to believe it's nearly the end of July - only one full month of summer left so I'm going to enjoy every second of it.

And I have a really easy healthy treat for you this time.  Well relatively healthy when you compare it to the rest of the sugary sweets that you usually find here.  Cute little pea pods - made from fruit.  

I spotted these Joray brand fruit rolls in the food store the other day.  Joray makes all kinds of flavors of fruit rolls, but I had never seen an all apple green fruit roll.  (ps if you look for them, I found them in the Kosher section of my local Shop Rite food store).

I thought they'd make great pea pods with some green grapes as the "peas".

They are really super easy to make too.  Cut out a leaf shape from the fruit roll.  Add your grapes (2 or 3 "pea" clusters) and wrap the fruit roll around the grapes.  

Twist the ends a bit and that's pretty much it.

Very cute as is or you can up your cute factor by adding some smiley faces.   Faces added with an edible food writer.

Smiling pea pods - try not to smile yourself!

Make them for your veggie averse peeps.  I was thinking they'd also make a super cute addition to a twin or triplet baby shower or maybe a fun April Fool's Day prank.  So many options!

Thanks as always for stopping by.  Have a GREAT week!


  1. What a fun treat for kids. I could see some of these packed in a lunch for a picnic. Enjoy the rest of the summer!

    1. THANKs Beth, my 3 did love these, I'll have to try some other fun fruit/veggie ideas, there are so many inspirational bento/lunch blogs and social accounts!
