Jungle Book Food Ideas – Fruit and Veggie Trees Snack
The kids are pretty excited, I jazzed up the movie a bit, explained the film’s story as one of my childhood favorites and they couldn’t wait to see it! We stopped by Walmart to grab a copy of the film, the Blu-Ray combo pack Diamond Edition has both DVD and Blu-ray discs and Walmart is the only place that you can receive a free Jungle Book lunch box with purchase. It’s gonna be a jungle movie night!
Jungle fruit and veggie trees snack
For a little jungle safari snack during the movie, I decided to put together a fun, healthy recipe that is themed for the Jungle Book movie. We grabbed some fresh produce and supplies while we were at Walmart. Sure, popcorn and soda are good, but can we get something with a little less sugar? Make these fun jungle trees with fruits and vegetables for your Jungle Book movie night!
How to make these jungle-themed snacks
Ingredients you will need:
- Mini plastic cups
- Jungle safari printed paper (I chose leopard)
Step 1: Make the jungle-printed party cups
Making these fruit and veggie trees was pretty simple. Start by cutting out a few strips of your safari jungle printed paper, wrapping them around the mid-section of each plastic cup. Secure each strip of paper with a dot of glue. I decided to cut mine a little curved, like cupcake wrappers, so they’d fit nicely.
Step 2: Assemble the tree trunks in each cup
Wash all of your fruits and veggies, cut your apples into thin slices, and soak them in cold salted water to prevent browning. Next, cut 3 – 4 inch pieces of carrots and celery to use as tree trunks. Put them into the center of the cup, then add blueberries surrounding the tree trunk to secure it, a little over halfway full.
Step 3: Add the jungle tree leaves on top
Insert a toothpick down the middle of the tree trunk, leaving the top half of the toothpick out and exposed. Take your thin apple slices, blot them dry, and arrange about 6 – 7 onto each tree, pressing the ends of them into the toothpick one by one and fanning them out evenly.
That’s it! Simple, isn’t it? We had a great time watching the movie and devouring these jungle trees. This is one snack that I don’t mind them indulging in! We hope this becomes one of your favorite jungle party food ideas.
