Strawberry Santa

  • 1 package fresh strawberries
  • 1 tub frozen sugar free whipped cream (thaw according to package)
  • 1 bag mini dark chocolate chips and/or sprinkles



Wash strawberries and cut off stems.

Flip them upside down and cut the strawberry nearly in half. Use the whipped cream as the filling between the strawberry top and bottom. (Make sure there is enough whipped cream in the middle, as this is the Santa face.) Then use the whipped cream and chocolate chips/sprinkles for buttons and Santa eyes.

Holly, jolly Santa will keep you on his “nice” list for making these little tributes!


Grinch Kabobs

  • 1 package green grapes
  • 1 package strawberries
  • 1 bunch ripe bananas (about 6)
  • 1 bag mini marshmallows
  • 1 package of toothpicks



Wash the grapes and strawberries, then cut off strawberry stems.

Peel bananas and slice them into ½ to 1-inch pieces. Use the toothpicks to layer the fruit in this order: marshmallow, strawberry, banana, grape.

With Mr. Grinch looking so adorable, maybe he didn’t steal Christmas after all?
