Ingredients

  • 2 firm-ripe bananas, peeled

Fruit Skewers are one of my favorite ways to serve and eat fruit. Besides standing statuesque, tasting delicious and being effortlessly healthy, there is something about eating fruit off of a skewer that elevates the fruit to a whole new level as each piece is appreciated one sweet, juicy, morsel at a time.

I also love that you can prepare these fruity kabobs ahead of time – even days ahead of time for effortless snacking or entertaining. They are also customizatable, easy, and freezer friendly.

Here are more reasons to love fruit skewers:

  • you get to delight in a variety of fruit in one serving
  • you can customize the fruit skewers with your favorite fruits
  • OR make skewers just of your favorite fruits – try all blueberries, all strawberries or all watermelon
  • kids love eating fruit off of a skewer AKA a great way to get your kids to eat more fruit instead of chips, cookies, etc.
  • they are fun to make with your kids – and then kids are more excited to eat them
  • you can make the skewers ahead of time and refrigerate them until later
  • you can make the skewers ahead of time and and freeze them for later – this is a great option if fruit is going bad
  • you can serve fruit skewers with yogurt dip or frozen with chocolate drizzle (or just plain)
  • fruit skewers are wonderfully portable for on-the-go snacking
  • they are perfect for parties – everyone just grabs a fruit skewer and mingles
  • they are loved by both kids and adults alike


1. Grape Clafoutis

This classic French dessert is usually made with black cherries &ndash pits still in! Though the color contrast is super pretty, cherries can be a little tart for some.

The thick custard filling bakes with the fruit and sets to a sort of cross between a flan and a crepe.

Of course, you can use any fruit you like, but I really love this grape version. I used a mix of green and red grapes, and it looked super cute!


Easy Frozen Fruit Kabobs with Chocolate Drizzle

We had so much fun making and munching on these frozen fruits kabobs. Jump to the Frozen Fruit Kabobs with Chocolate Drizzle or read on to see our tips for making them.

These kabobs are perfect for kids of all ages, even those who may be kids-at-heart and not specifically by age. The trick with these is to buy a bottle of chocolate topping that forms a hard shell when drizzled over something very cold.

We used Hershey’s Hard Shell, but there are a few options at the store for you to choose from. You could also drizzle the frozen fruit with melted chocolate, but we really just wanted something simple without additional mess. These would be great served at a party!

6. Banana Nice Cream Sandwiches

Bananas are used in both the cookie and the ice cream to create these delicious (and raw!) ice cream sandwiches. Carissa Alice of Alice in Cookingland packs her cookies a not-intimidating ingredients list (think rolled oats, coconut, and nut butter). Ready to take it to the next level? Add in a bar of chocolate (make it dark!) for a frozen s&rsquomore-inspired treat.

Grinch Fruit Kabobs Skewers – Healthy Christmas Appetizer, Snack or Dessert!

These adorable Grinch Fruit Kabobs will be a hit at your Christmas party! Made with grapes, strawberries, bananas and marshmallows, these cute little skewers are so healthy and delicious!

What&rsquos a better thing to do to the evil Grinch who stole Christmas than to eat him? These little Grinches in Santa hats are made using the green grape for the Grinch face, and the strawberry, banana and mini marshmallow for the Santa hat! These Crinch fruit kabobs are so cute and delicious, everyone loves them! They&rsquoll be the talk of the Holiday party and will disappear in seconds!

Made out of fruits with just a tiny marshmallow on top, these Grinch fruit kabobs will be the healthiest thing at your Christmas party :) Cute sweet yummy things that are healthy too &ndash that&rsquos always a winner! You can serve these Grinch fruit skewers as either appetizer or dessert. Finger foods are always welcome at any party!

These Christmas fruit kabobs are always a hit! Kids and adults will fight over who gets them :) If your task is to provide kid-friendly food for the Holiday gathering, these fruit skewers are awesome for the kids. Even the pickiest eaters usually like grapes, bananas, strawberries and marshmallows, especially when presented in the shape of the Grinch!

Christmas Grinch fruit skewers are a great project to make with the kids. Children will love putting together Grinch&rsquos head in the Santa&rsquos hat! And it will be so fun to eat the Grinch all up! You can even go as far as drawing the Grinch&rsquos face with the cake decorating writing gel :)

Edible writing gel is usually found in most large supermarkets in the baking isle next to the sprinkles. All you need to do to use it is cut off the tip of the gel bottle, then squeeze it and draw the faces!

The Grinch faces will rub off if the fruit skewers are stacked on top of each other and touching, so if you intend on making large quantities of these Grinch fruit kabobs, leave the faces off. If you are just making one plate of these fruit kabobs, faces can make them even more fun!

Making the Grinch fruit kabobs is super easy. No cooking is needed, and you can assemble them in 5 minutes flat! Make them no longer than 1 hour before the party to avoid browning of the bananas.

Here&rsquos what you need: green grapes, banana, strawberries, mini-marshmallows and toothpicks. First, slice the banana into thin rounds. Then cut the bottom off the strawberry. Next, stack the strawberry and banana together. If the strawberry is large, you&rsquoll see that it&rsquos circumference is much larger than banana, and in this case, cut off more from the strawberry until the size of the strawberry bottom is the same as the banana round. Put the toothpick inside the grape, then tread the banana, strawberry and mini marshmallow onto the toothpick, so the marshmallow is on the very top.

If the toothpick is too short and is not sticking out from the bottom of the grape, insert another toothpick into the bottom of the grape, so people have the toothpick to grab on to. If desired, draw the Grinch faces using the edible writing gel pen. That&rsquos all there is to making these Christmas Grinch fruit kabobs!

Step 1

Based on aesthetics, taste, or personal preference, decide what fruits you want to use for your kabobs.

Step 2

Wash, peel and dice as necessary. Aim for bite-sized portions.

Step 3

#SpoonTip: Keep in mind that fruits with soft flesh or pieces too large will slide right down the stick. It’s important to choose a solid fruit as the base.
