How to Make Rainbow Fruit Salad
To make this Rainbow Parfait, just gather up a rainbow of fruit. I chose –
orange- mandarin oranges
You will need some clean glasses to stack the fruit in. I chose these tall glasses, but you could use shorter glasses, mason jars, small glasses, or even plastic glasses.
You will also need pure vanilla extract and some powdered sugar. After putting each kind of fruit in a bowl, add 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla and a couple of 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar to each bowl. Stir each bowl of fruit until the powdered sugar dissolves. Now the rainbow fruit salad is ready to assemble into a parfait!
Layer all of the fruit in rainbow order. I started with purple and worked my way up to red. After all the fruit is in, top it with a big “cloud” of whipped cream. Then you can top it off with anything cutesie that you like. I made a washi flag on a paper straw. Or leave it as is. Either way the rainbow fruit salad will be just as delicious!
The vanilla and powdered sugar in the fruit give it a very magical flavor. Kind of like the gold at the end of a rainbow.
