This recipe for fruit kabobs is a rainbow of fruit served on skewers with a yogurt dipping sauce. An easy and healthy snack that the kids will devour!
I’m always looking for new snack ideas for the kids. I’ve noticed that the pre-packaged snack options at the grocery store are often far from healthy, so I started making these fruit kabobs as an alternative. My kids ask for these fruit skewers almost every day after school – they love the flavor, and I love that they’re getting more nutrients!
How do you make fruit kabobs?
I’m always looking for ways to create healthy snacks that the kids will love, and these fruit kabobs definitely fit the bill. I picked up these decorative skewers at a party supply store; if you’re serving these to young kids, you can simply cut off the pointed end with kitchen shears. I like to put a rainbow of fruit on these skewers; in this case I used raspberries, clementine oranges, pineapple, kiwi and grapes. I used a small metal cookie cutter to cut the kiwis into fun shapes, but that’s completely optional. Other great choices would be strawberries, blueberries, bananas, green grapes, or even melon!
I serve these fruit kabobs with a simple dip of vanilla yogurt, topped with rainbow sprinkles for good measure. I’ve found my girls will eat anything if it involves sprinkles! These fruit skewers are also perfect for parties; I served them for my youngest daughter’s birthday and they were a huge hit.
I like to use Greek yogurt for the dip because it has more protein than regular yogurt, and I find that adding a little protein to snack time helps to keep my kids full for longer.
