What Are Fruit Kabobs? 

Fruit kabobs, or fruit skewers are skewers of various types of fresh fruit. They come in all different varieties from rainbow fruit kabobs to festive ones like these! Easy to prepare, they’re loved by kids and adults alike. Plus, they are a great way to add a bit of nutrients to your holiday. 

Festive Ingredients

Below is an overview of the ingredients and instructions to make this recipe. Please read the recipe card below for the complete details and nutrition information!

Feel free to mix and match your favorite fruit to make this recipe your own. However, to get you started, here’s what I use:

  • Honeydew Melon – Choose a melon that has smooth, waxy skin and gives just slightly when pressed on. 
  • Kiwis – Look for kiwi fruits that are free of wrinkles, soft spots, or cuts. 
  • Grapes – I use green grapes to stick with the St. Paddy’s Day theme, but red will also work. 
  • Apples – Again, I use green Granny Smith apples, but feel free to use whatever kind you like best. 

How to Make St. Patrick’s Day Fruit Kabobs

Before you begin, be sure to wash and dry your fruit, and cut them into bite-sized pieces. I like to use fun St. Patrick’s Day cookie cutters to make them a little extra festive. You can find these in the baking aisle of your local grocery store, but a knife will also do. 

  1. Thread the fruit onto wooden skewers, bamboo skewers, or plastic skewers, piercing them through the center. 
  2. Continue to thread different pieces of fruit until you reach the end of the skewer. 
  3. Repeat until all the fruit is used. 
  4. Enjoy!

How Do You Keep Fruit Kabobs From Turning Brown? 

Sprinkle a dash of lemon juice over the skewers to prevent the fruit from turning brown! We also like to put the sliced apples in a bowl of water with a few splashes of lemon juice and let them soak for just a few minutes before we begin. 

Serving Suggestions

Of course, you can easily serve this recipe on its own as an easy snack. However, if you really want to go all out, try pairing your skewers with dipping options like:

Can You Make Fruit Kabobs the Night Before? 

This recipe is best served right away while the fruit is still fresh. However, if you have leftovers or want to prepare in advance, you can store your kabobs in an airtight container in the fridge. They will stay fresh for up to two days. 

Can I Freeze These Fruit Skewers? 

I don’t recommend freezing this recipe as the fruit is likely to become soggy once thawed. Luckily, it only takes minutes to make!
