Rainbow Fruit Skewers

My girls declared these Rainbow Skewers the “besssst thing evvvveeerrrrrr!!”

Before devouring the entire batch of skewers and dip in like 3 minutes flat.

A little 🌈 magic is alwasy good for the soul!

These skewers are super easy to prepare and can be customized based on whatever fruit you have on hand. I used raspberries, mandarin oranges, pineapple chunks, kiwi, blueberries and blackberries for the full rainbow effect, but if you don’t have all of those fruits or want to sub in strawberries instead of raspberries then go for it!

The dip is super bonkers amazing and I have since made it every day for myself for breakfast. It’s also easy to make – greek yogurt, a swirl of honey, a squeeze of lemon juice and a pinch of lemon zest for a little more citrus pow! It’s sweet, creamy and citrusy without being overpowering – the perfect combination.

Cooking with Kids

This recipe is beyond easy and such a great recipe for kids of any age to help make.

Toddlers and Preschoolers

  • Measure the ingredients for the dip out for them (they can also help with this process) and have them pour them into a bowl before mixing. I always find that having a bowl bigger than you actually need helps toddlers not make as big as a mess.
  • Have them help prep the fruit.
  • Have them thread the fruit onto their own skewers.

Kids

  • Measure the ingredients for the dip and mix them all together.
  • Wash, peel and chop any fruit they feel like using.
  • Thread the fruit onto the skewers.
  • Place everything on a plate or into their lunch boxes.

Notes

Age: 1 year and up. If serving to a baby under 1, you will have to omit the honey as baby’s under a year cannot have honey. 
Note on Fruit: I used raspberries, mandarin oranges, pineapple chunks, kiwis, blueberries and blackberries. But you can feel free to use any fruit in any colors you prefer or have on hand. 
Note on Skewers: These are the skewers that I used. I would recommend that you do cut the pointy end off before threading the fruit so your kids don’t start using them as swords;). You can also use these or these which have blunt ends.
