There are a lot of football-inspired fruit dishes out there (you’ve probably seen several on Pinterest).

Check these out:

  • Go here to find out how to carve a watermelon into a football helmet. Fill it  with your favorite fruit. You could even pick fruit that matches your team’s colors.
  • Chocolate-covered anything is one of life’s greatest treats. These chocolate covered football strawberries will be a big hit on the big day.
  • For this one, all you need is a football platter, strawberries and bananas. Tailgate football kabobs will knock the opposing team’s socks off.
  • If kiddy fans will be at the party, pre-pack strawberries, grapes and pineapple in individual sandwich bags. Easy for the kids to grab and carry around the party.
  • Bravetart will show you how to make football-shaped passion fruit bars. This would be great to take to your kid’s class to celebrate the game.
  • Turn a whole watermelon into a giant football by following these step-by-step instructions on wikihow.
  • Why not take over your fruit blender and mix up some yummy smoothies during halftime? Add some flavored vodka for an adult kick.
  • Something Swanky has a nutritious recipe for “nachos and salsa,” which is fruit salsa and cinnamon chips.
  • A party wouldn’t be complete without pizza — fruit pizza that is.

These ideas will keep you fit and ready to play at your Super Bowl party.
