Fruit Pyramid Treat

If you want a sweet and pretty dessert, but you don't want a lot of calories, this idea is for you.

You can use your favorite fruits.  For mine, I used pineapple, kiwi, banana, strawberry, and Fruit Pyramid top viewapple. After choosing your fruits, decide where each of them will place on your pyramid (bottom to top).  You'll want to cut the fruit pieces on bottom a little bigger or in such a way that they can be placed close to each other, like a puzzle that will provide a base for the next layers.

I cut each of my first three layers as flat as I could so they'd easily stack on top of each other.  The very top of my pyramid is a strawberry because it comes to a point, and the apples were cut into chunks and sprinkled around the bottom.
