Create your own food illusions at home. Here we show you how to serve up some fruity egg and chips. A fun snack time meal for everyone!

Thanks to Katie, from Manchester, who sent in this great fruity egg and chips idea. Let’s take a look at it…

What did you do?

We made fruity egg and chips.

How did you make it?

Mix a bit of greek yogurt together with a few drops of vanilla extract and powdered sugar.

Shape it so it looks like an egg and place the peach half on top.

Core an apple and either use a mandolin or a knife to cut the apple into chip size pieces.

Easy peasy! My kids loved it so much they asked could they have it again tomorrow so that’s a win! Xx
