One of my first childhood memories is of my brother making a fruit salad basket with my mom in the kitchen. There even are a few pictures in one of our family's photo albums of him proudly showing his elaborate food creation, standing on a stool to reach the kitchen counter comfortably. Thanks to this memory, I've always thought that fruit salads are one of the easiest recipes for kids, and a great way to get them busy and excited in the kitchen. Those first few steps as little chefs are very important, as they can make the difference between loving to cook or being scared/turned off by it for life. These easy fruit salad cups are an even easier version of that recipe for kids that my brother so loved when he was little. The summer is an ideal time to prepare them, as there are many outdoor events where their sweet and juicy freshness would be welcome. MORE + LESS -

  • 1
    Cut the oranges in half, and take the pulp out with a knife making sure you don't break the skin.
  • 2
    Chop the orange pulp and mix it with the other ingredients.
  • 3
    Cut the base of each orange peel cup flat, so they stand firmly. Be careful that you don't cut too much, as you don't want to make a hole at the bottom of the cups.
  • 4
    Fill each orange peel cup with the fruit salad.

Expert Tips

  • You can use any variation of fruits you want when making these fruit salad cups. Another nice and refreshing touch is to sprinkle them with chopped or sliced mint leaves.
  • Serve them immediately, or add the banana right before serving, as it will brown easily.
