With this stifling hot weather, it’s hard to get motivated to cook and sometimes even eat! But this is a cool, cute way to take a dish to pass or have your kiddos eat more fruit! And just like the average fruit salad, you can use just about any fruit for these! It is best to choose things that don’t brown quickly (like bananas, apples or peaches) and instead opt for fruits that last a bit longer. Also, try for a variety of colors so it’s just more festive!
You can add a yogurt dip if you’d like. Just straight vanilla yogurt or whipped cream cheese mixed with vanilla yogurt is also a great option for more of a zing! If it’s not sweet enough for you, add a touch of honey. I also sometimes add a pinch of cinnamon. Just create what tastes good to you! I’ve also added pureed strawberries or a tablespoon of peanut butter!
Here are some good choices of fruit to start with:
- Pineapple chunks
- Cantaloupe, honeydew or watermelon balls
- Seedless grapes
- Kiwi slices
This is a no-cook dish, so it’s super simple and the kids can even help! Just alternate colors and place the prepped fruit chunks on wooden skewers. Then cover tightly and chill.
- Prep the fruit by cutting into slices, wedges or chunks.
- Thread fruit onto skewers and refrigerate until eating.
Make fruit kabobs ahead of time so they’ll be well chilled before serving. They’ll keep in the refrigerator for up to 12 hours.
