Fun Fruit Treat for Kids

I love the summer and spring when fruit goes on sale! I realized we have lots and lots of fresh fruit at our house right we made a fun fruit salad treat.
This is an easy thing you can make with your kids! Serve it up in a cone to make it even more fun!
In a large bowl, mix up about 5-6 cups of fresh fruit. Have the adult cut it up, and the child/children can mix it up.

Add a SMALL (4 serving size) box of vanilla pudding, and 8 oz. container of Cool Whip whipped topping. Mix it all up. Of course I know this is a common way to make fruit salad, but it was especially fun to eat it out of an ice cream cone. Even the mommy here really liked it. If your kids won't eat fruit, this is an easy way to get them to eat some. Cut out some of the fat and sugar by using fat free/sugar free whipped topping and pudding. Enjoy!

My kids will love this idea. I actually have a fruit salad (but no pudding in it). I can easily add that in and do this, becuse - surprisingly, I also have waffle cones too.
