Fruit Kabobs are a fun treat for this summer! Use any fruit you want + some sweet treats = delicious dessert for the kids (and adults)!
Fruit Kabobs are fun to make. They are simple, healthy (well, can be!) and our kids loved them!
They are versatile. You can put anything you want on them depending on the season of fruit you are in. We are in the Midwest so it is just starting to become fruit season here. The strawberries are starting to ripen and the rhubarb is growing. I even found peaches in the stores for $.77/lb. Not bad for June!
I decided to make these fruit kabobs when we were heading out to a family fellowship group with our church. We have small group gatherings once every few months to get to know other church members. I knew we would be outside for the day and these seemed easy to make and fun for an outdoor gathering. I also made them the next day for a Memorial Day picnic with family.
They went over well both times.
The first time I added drizzled chocolate to the top of the fruit kabobs. The second day, I added brownies to the kabobs. Wanna know which was better? Try them both! 😉 That is what is nice about this dessert. You can add what you have on hand, what your family likes and what you feel like peeling and cutting.
I found some fun marshmallows to go on the kabobs. They are from Kraft called Banana Split. They had banana flavor with chocolate and strawberry. They added a nice twist.
Assembling them is easy. Especially when you have such great helpers. I had Cade and Cora help me, so I sliced the fruit and they put it on the skewers.
Fruit Kabobs Recipe
Simply wash, cut and slice fruit and place on skewers. I used peaches, strawberries, bananas and (not shown) grapes. I also used regular marshmallows and Banana Split marshmallows.
If you want, you can melt a bar of Hershey’s Chocolate (in the microwave for 30 seconds) and drizzle it over the top.
