Since we’re focused on gardening, fruits, and veggies this week, I wanted to serve the kids a fun snack that features a variety of fruits. These Rainbow Fruit Kabobs are not only attractive, but they’re a great way to introduce your kids to new fruits. I promise, when they are presented in a fun way (and when they have a dip alongside), children are much more inclined to taste their fruits and vegetables.
Gibbs not only enjoyed eating these, but he also helped to make them. He held the sticks for me and pulled out each piece of fruit in the correct order. My only job was to skewer them!
Rainbow Fruit Kabobs with Honey Cinnamon Yogurt Dip
Rainbow Fruit Kabobs:
- ½ cup strawberries cut into bite-sized pieces
- ½ cup clementine segments
- ½ cup pineapple chunks
- ½ cup green grapes
- ½ cup blueberries
- Small wooden or plastic skewers for kids, I like to use the small plastic cocktail stirrers that come in a variety of colors
- 8 ounces vanilla yogurt
- 1 Tablespoon honey
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- On small skewers, alternately thread the fruit in rainbow order. Arrange kabobs on a plate and serve with yogurt dip.
- For dip, combine ingredients in a small bowl and stir until blended. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
