Fruit Kebabs are a fun and festive way to serve fruit, especially in the Summer. They look impressive but are surprisingly easy to make! Perfect for entertaining or for simply making an everyday dessert feel special!
There’s nothing better than than fresh fruit, especially at any summer gathering — barbecue, picnic, beach!
It is refreshing,hydrating, and beyond tasty because everything is in season and so bursting with flavor!
I find, however, that if I leave fruit in the refrigerator in its original containers, it might not be eaten right away… but if I plate it, something as simple as throwing it all in a bowl, it will disappear!
And if we’re entertaining, feeling fancy or just want to switch it up, it is super fun to serve it as fruit kebabs.
They’re a fun way to make an every day dessert feel special.
Fruit kebabs are the best for a party or entertaining of any kind because they are so fun and look impressive but are actually easy to make.
Two years ago, I started out making fruit kebabs for a Father’s Day barbecue but I purchased too much fruit so I decided to serve them on a big platter and throw the rest of the fruit right onto the same platter.
They look impressive but are actually quite easy to make... if you’re going to cut the fruit to serve in a bowl anyway, it doesn’t take much longer to put it on skewers.
The key is:
to cut the melon into bite size pieces so the it is easy to eat straight off the skewers, and
to cut them in similar sizes.
Once cut, you just slide them on the skewers in a pattern if you like and place some berries on the end to hold them in place and “book end” them.
Making fruit Kebabs is also a great way to involve kids in preparing food because they can slide the fruit onto the skewers — there is really no right or wrong way to do it.
So go ahead an enjoy the best of Summer fruit and have a little fun serving it!
