Given the choice between blueberries, grapes, chunked pineapple, and other fruit options on a plate versus colorful rainbow fruit kabobs, the latter will have your party crowd reaching for healthy fruit just on presentation alone. Perfect for game night with friends, a baby shower, or a kiddo’s birthday party, these fruit kabobs are a great way to work in fiber, potassium, vitamin A, C, and K, and more. Fruit is known for helping to prevent vitamin deficiencies, fruit may help reduce risk for stroke, and fruit helps maintain optimum health because of the phytochemicals they contain.
½ cup blueberries
½ cup green grapes
½ cup chunked pineapple
½ cup orange segments (such as Cuties)
½ cup bite-sized pieces of strawberry
Short plastic cocktail stirrers in a variety of colors (to use as skewers)
8 ounces vanilla yogurt
1 tablespoon honey
Thread 3 blueberries, 1 grape, 1 pineapple chunk, 1 orange segment, and 1 strawberry onto a skewer. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Combine yogurt and honey in a small bowl; refrigerate yogurt mixture until ready to serve alongside fruit kabobs.
When preparing these fruit kabobs get the kids involved. Little ones can count out the fruit for each skewer, and older kids can help assemble the fruit kabobs.
