Quick and Easy Fruit Kabobs

Fruit kabobs are a perfect way to serve fruit at a party without guests having to grab it out of a bowl, and they are fun to eat!

Fruit kabobs were probably the easiest food I made for Ryan’s banana party, and they were delicious. This was the one thing that was completely gone after the party.

Of course, since it was a banana party, we had so much food with bananas in it. And what goes better with bananas than some fresh strawberries? I wanted a bit more on them than just the two fruits, so I also got some Pound Cake.

We’ve been working on reducing waste in the house, especially the kitchen. We stopped using wooden skewers a long time ago and went to metal skewers.

I bought so many bananas for the party. I had plenty to work with for the kabobs. We also have been eating strawberries every day since they are in season so have those on hand as well. I bought a pound cake from the bakery just for this.

Since the party, I have made the kabobs with both pound cake and angel food cake. Both are delicious. Both work well. Whichever you can find easier is fine for the kabobs.

The fruit kabobs made a great appetizer for Ryan’s party. But they would also be a healthy after-school snack. I like to dip in caramel or chocolate. Of course, that makes them less healthy.

Step by Step

Cut the cake into cubes about one inch each. You want to make sure that the pieces are large enough that they won’t come apart and fall off of the skewers. Cut the tops off of the strawberries and slice the bananas into one-inch chunks as well.

Carefully thread the fruit and cake on the skewers in an alternating pattern.

  1. I usually love to have fruit kabob during our summer cookouts, nothing brings more joy than grilled fruit. This recipe you shared does not need to wait for summer, I love it and probably may have that for our Easter dinner.

  2. I know for a fact that if and when I have kids – this will legit be my go-to recipe LOL!! Everything on sticks. Although with my luck, my kids will poke themselves and each other in the eyes!

  3. Adding cake on fruit skewers is genius!! I never thought of that. I think it probably also makes picky kids eat more fruits that way. Love it! thanks for sharing 🙂
