Non-candy Valentine’s Day treats can be just as fun as all those sweets! Read on to see how to make a super cute fruit heart!
Valentine’s Day is a holiday that I just, well, LOVE! I feel so blessed to have so much love in my life that I simply can’t get enough of Cupid’s favorite day, even this year. In fact, I am especially ready to celebrate something happy this year.
Maybe I adore it so much because now the holiday is more about celebrating with my hubs and making the day special for our children. There is nothing quite like seeing the excitement over the little things with your child after all. Mine get so tickled from even the smallest gesture or holiday themed treat.
In my younger years, Galentine’s Day wasn’t quite a thing yet. There was a lot more anxiety attached to the holiday if you were single then. I know. It’s just plain ridiculous to think about now. Sigh. Valentine’s Day is about LOVE and love comes in all forms after all. So, if you aren’t attached this February 14th, remember, you can treat ANYONE you love…mom, sister, bestie, you name it!
And this Valentine fruit heart treat is a super cute treat! It’s also a great way to start the day without it being all sweet treats. It would be perfect to pair with a bowl of yogurt or oatmeal to start the day off. After all, you know those class Valentine’s Day parties are going to be sugar filled!
So, how do you make a heart out of fruit? It’s actually pretty darn easy…Here’s how we created this pretty plate, although I’m sure you could fill your own Valentine Fruit Heart with any type of fruit that your family covets!

1. After rinsing your fruit, start by making a heart outline using the fresh raspberries. I used raspberries for the outline because they don’t roll like the other fruits. Then, I played around with the raspberries, spacing them out and adding more as needed.
2. Next, fill the heart in with your other fruit. I chose to do equal parts of the blueberries and grapes and used strawberries more for garnish, but you can do whatever suits your needs or that you have on hand.
