Fruit kebabs are a fresh and flavourful summer dessert on a stick. The colourful fruits are arranged to make a beautiful rainbow design that kids will love. We’ve served our fruit kebabs with a tasty passion fruit and Greek yoghurt dip, which is simply made by mixing together a few ingredients, but complements the fruity skewers perfectly. We are often told to eat the rainbow in order to have a healthy diet – and with these fruit kebabs you can do just that. The different fruits provide a wide range of vitamins and minerals, including vitamins C and B6, potassium, beta carotene and calcium, as well as plenty of antioxidants. The natural sweetness of the fruit makes these rainbow fruit kebabs the perfect refreshing treat for a summer party or picnic. Kids can get involved once the chopping is done and help to make their very own fruit kebabs. The fun, hands on aspect of this recipe is a great way to encourage kids to eat more healthily. You can of course use any mixture of fruit you like for fruit kebabs, or whatever you have in the house at the time! We love things like strawberries and bananas because they keep their shape well when threaded onto the skewers.
