2 bananas

1/4 carrot

Handful of currents or sultanas chopped

3 strawberries

6 grapes

6 skewers


  1. Cut the bananas into thick slices (approx 9 rounds per banana)
  2. Peel the carrot and cut into small triangular slivers for a pointy nose
  3. Trim the stem from the strawberries and then cut in half. You should get two hats out of each strawberry
  4. Cut the grapes in half. (We only used the smooth half and ate the stem end)
  5. To assemble, thread three slices of banana on to each skewer followed by a strawberry hat and grape half. Gently press the currents into the banana slices to create eyes and the buttons on the body then add the carrot nose
  6. Serve immediately or freeze and serve later
