This Fruit Salad in a Jar recipe is quick, easy and so fun to make and eat! The fruit is layered then sweetened with honey and juice.
Fruit salad in a jar is in regular rotation in our household, no matter what time of year it is!
I know it's winter here and freezing cold outside but do not let that stop you from enjoying one of these.
Yeah that's right baby, it may be cold outside but that is no reason to shy away from some yummy fruity goodness. Eat some of this today and you can eat all the cookies you want on Christmas.
Yes, fruit is more expensive in the winter months but you just have to look around for bargains. Our market had a 2 for $5 deal on fruit so mini-me and I went to town buying up some raspberries, strawberries and blueberries. Satsumas oranges are in season so we picked those up too.
I picked up lots of healthy snack food. Then we got home and mini-me declared we have nothing to eat. I rolled my eyes and she clarified. Okay we have stuff to eat but no junk food.
Um, I have fudge and four different kinds of cookies right now. More eye rolling. Mini-me clarifies again. Um, okay we have no chips and stuff. Ah, now we get to the heart of it. Chips and stuff are an important part of weekends. How could I forget this?
Mini-me and B went to rent a movie and came back with chips anyway.
So, the kids have snacks and so does Mom!
Hope you love this fruit salad recipe!

Fruit Salad in a Jar
For the Salad:
- 1 cup strawberries
- 1 granny smith apple peeled
- 1 cup raspberries
- 1 satsuma orange peeled
- 1 kiwi peeled
- 1 banana peeled
For the Juice:
- Satsuma orange juice only
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- Rinse and cut your strawberries in half. Lay as first layer.
- Peel your apple and cut into wedges. Drizzle with lemon juice and honey. Lay as your second layer.
- Rinse your raspberries. Lay as your third layer.
- Peel and separate your satsuma. Lay as your fourth layer.
- Peel and thinly slice your kiwi. Lay as your fifth layer.
- Peel and thinly slice your banana. Lay as your last layer.
- Now juice your extra satsuma and pour over top.
- Pop the lid on the jar and give it a good shake.
- Stick in fridge for an hour or so until it’s chilled.
- You can use it the next day but beyond that your bananas and apple will get discoloured. So best to use it up right away. Or switch those two fruits out to something that keeps better.
- Serve in small bowls. Or you can layer these in small individual size jars. I used a 1L for this one. It made one jar.

@mjskit- Totally lucked out. We hit a gourmet market about once every week or two. We are probably the only ones who shop there on a budget, lol. But I found these little beauties and kumquats. Great day.
@Ann- Lol, a girl needs a break from visiting cute, rich doctors once in awhile. Wait, what. Heck no, what was I thinking??
@thesmartcookiecook- Lol, I'm the same way!
@Kym- Thank you. I am so touched you took my suggestion to heart and did that. I really struggle to find non-alcohol options. I can't drink at all so that post is a HUGE help to me. You are so sweet. xx
@kitchenarian- Thank you so much!
@anne- My thoughts exactly. Needed a more natural sugar rush. Lol!
@Sandra- Thank you so much. xx
Very cute 🙂 And nice and fresh and flavorful in between all the heavy winter meals one tends o whip up!
Stephanie @ Eat. Drink. Love.
Not only does this look so pretty, but it looks so yummy too! I love satsumas also!
@Kiri- Thanks. I was just feeling the need for something un-Christmasy and light. Lol!
@Stephanie- Thank you. I was so stunned to see the satsumas at the market. I had literally just read they were out but I didn't think we would see any.

I enjoyed your fruit salad in jar and looking up for your extra special post through my email subscription.
A couple of things. 1. I love this series, I am such a sucker for anything in a jar. I look forward to your weekly creations!
2. Your photoshop ability is awesome - I'm jealous of how great that photo with the labeled fruit is. Awesome job.

Love your jars. Love your fruit salad. Love this post. Congrats on Top 9, Kim!! 🙂
Perfect to pack in a picnic. Our afternoons are still warm here in Houston, TX.
How fruitylicious! Is that a word? If not, it should be! This is gorgeous! 🙂
This definitely caught my eye! I kept thinking it'd be a cool poster picture to hang up but then I'd always be hungry looking at it 🙂 LOVE fruit!
