I Heart You Fruit Kabobs
Creating these Fruit Kabobs is a fun, easy task. Just pick your fruit and then start creating.
Not only are fruit kabobs a tasty treat, but they are super fun to create! You can build them yourself and serve them to your family and friends, or just lay out the fruit in a bowl and let them build the kabobs themselves. However you serve them, they’re sure to be a treat!
Tips for Creating your fruit Kabobs
- Kiwi, Strawberries, and Mangos are perfect for cutting heart shapes. Oranges don’t do so well.
- Keep the extra pieces you cut out of the heart shapes for the kids to snack on or freeze for smoothies.
- Slice the bottom off an apple for a small fruit kabob stand or use a pineapple if you want to make it larger.
- Bamboo Skewers can be found in the kitchen gadget aisle (usually priced around $1.00)
- Alternate the fruits to give it color and texture variety.
- Serve extra kabobs and fruit on the side of a dish.
I picked up an assortment of Vitamin C rich fruits when I was at the store this past weekend along with some Vitamin C supplement since my bottle was completely empty. I love knowing that I’m getting what my body needs even if I’m not eating enough fruits and vegetables during the winter.
Do you know the name of this fruit that we chose to create some of the hearts on our fruit kabobs?
