There is nothing I love more than fresh fruit during the summer. We love making a fruit salad, but sometimes it’s kind to mix it up. And these rainbow fruit kabobs are a fun way to do that. They make a great side dish to bring to a BBQ, afternoon snack for the kids or even a healthy late night treat.

These fruit kabobs are super simple to make and only take about 10 minutes to prep. They’re a great snack for your kids to help out with. My daughter loves making them for just about anything! This past month we’ve also been working with my two year ancient on his colors and printed off these rainbow coloring pages to go along our rainbow kabobs. It was the great match!

These would be delicious to serve with greek yogurt or a strawberry fruit dip. They are also great to serve at a BBQ, birthday party or even a St. Patrick’s Day celebration. The rainbow colors are so bright and festive and the fresh fruit tastes astonishing!

How to make fruit kabobs

  1. Soak the skewers for about 5 minutes in cold water (so they don’t obtain slivers in the fruit).
  2. Wash the fruit and then chop any of the bigger types (like pineapple or apples) into 1-inch pieces.
  3. Thread through skewers starting with grapes then onto blackberries, apples, pineapples, oranges and strawberries..

Preparing in advance: You can exactly prepare these fruit skewers in advance if preferred. I’d recommend replacing any fruits that brown fast (i.e. apples or bananas) with other similar colored types. Simply prepare as directed, then place on a plate and cover with saran wrap. Store in the fridge until serving.
