Equipment Needed To Make DIY Fruit Platter

  • Chopping board

Christmas Fruit Platter Tips

Can you make a Christmas fruit platter ahead of time?

Well technically you can yes, the only problem is these are big so they often won’t fit in the fridge.

The best way to make them ahead is to prepare all the fruit individually and store in the fridge and then assemble on the platter just before your guests arrive – it’s a quick job, shouldn’t take longer than 5-10 minutes.

If you’re taking the fruit platter to a party it’s best to assemble it once you get there.

What else can I put on a Christmas fruit platter?

There’s lots of things you can add to a festive fruit platter tray. You could add pastries, maple syrup or chocolate dip, pancakes, ice-cream, yogurts, cheese, dried fruit and nuts.

Love your leftovers!

Leftover fruit tray will be okay in the fridge for around 1-2 days – anything that is looking droopy just use it up in a fruit smoothie instead.
