Easy fruit skewers are so quick and simple to make. They also look fantastic when they are laid out on a simple platter if you are entertaining. They make a perfect, light dessert after a rich meal, or are perfect at a barbecue. What’s even better is they can be made ahead by either you, or your older children!
I don’t know about you, but my kids are far more likely to eat fruit presented to them like this, than they would a piece of fruit from the fruit bowl. This makes them a winner in our household!
If you are entertaining and are unsure of which fruits people would like on their skewers, simply put the chopped fruit in bowls and allow people to make up their own skewers! Although beware – if you make it a ‘DIY dessert’, the strawberries will go first so make sure you have plenty!
I selected the following soft fruits, but you can choose whatever you or your family prefers:
- Kiwi fruit
You will also need some wooden kebab sticks. These are available from supermarkets or online.
- Chop up your fruit into similar bitesize pieces.
- Carefully thread onto the wooden skewers.
- Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate.
