I love creating fun and festive fruit platters during December. There are so many different Christmas fruit platter ideas you could make a different festive fruit platter every day in December. One of my family’s favourite Christmas fruit platters is this Kiwi Fruit Christmas Tree.
Green kiwi fruit is perfect for creating the Christmas tree while strawberries and blueberries add a festive pop of colour representing Christmas lights on the tree. The fuzzy brown skin of kiwi fruit is a great ingredient for making the Christmas tree stump.
You can make large versions of this kiwi Christmas tree for taking to Christmas parties and gatherings or smaller versions for eating at home for afternoon tea.
Kids love the delicious tangy and sweet flavour of kiwi fruits. It is such a unique and delicious taste. Kiwi fruits are also very nutritious, being extremely high in vitamin C and vitamin K, as well as being a good source of vitamin E. All three of these vitamins are essential for good health.
This kiwi fruit Xmas tree is extremely quick and easy to make but looks spectacular.
Other healthy, delicious and fun Christmas fruit ideas include watermelon Christmas trees, Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer Christmas pears, Christmas Grinch fruit skewers and strawberry Christmas trees.

Kiwi Christmas Tree Recipe
Step 1 – Peel and Slice Kiwi Fruit
Peel the kiwi fruit and cut them into round slices.
Reserve some of the skin of the kiwi fruit to make the trunk of the tree.
Step 2 – Assemble The Kiwi Christmas Tree
Arrange the kiwi fruit slices onto the platter in the shape of a Christmas tree.
Layer the slices to avoid any gaps in the tree.
Step 3 – Add Trunk
Use the reserved kiwi fruit peel to create a trunk for the Christmas tree.
Step 4 – Decorate The Kiwi Fruit Christmas Tree
Cut the stem end off the strawberries so they will sit nicely on the Christmas tree as decorations. Small strawberries tend to look best. If you prefer you can use raspberries or pomegranate instead of strawberries.
Further decorate the Christmas tree with blueberries too.
Step 5 – Add The Star
Use a star shaped cookie cutter to press out a star from the slice of pineapple. Alternatively you could use a slice of star fruit.
Place the star at the top of the kiwi fruit Christmas tree.
Step 6 – Refrigerate Until Serving
Refrigerate the platter until serving.
