Fruit has to be one of my favourite things to eat, and I love finding new and exciting ways to enjoy it. Fresh, homemade smoothies are amazing, smoothie bowls blew my mind, stewing up the old mushy ones into a compote is one of the best things I’ve ever discovered, and don’t even get me started on nice cream! Pure deliciousness…
But then I found out about fruit kebabs. It’s something that I’ve known about for a while, but just never really appreciated. All your favourite fruit placed on a stick, ready to eat and enjoy. It’s sounds pretty good, right? And as a bonus, it’s super quick and easy to make, not to mention that it’s actually quite fun.
Fun With Fruit
At 5 years old my nephew, Bobby absolutely loved making this, and actually tried fruit that he would never normally touch. This added an aspect of fun to a healthy pudding, and made it something that he looked forward to eating. You can make a pattern, a fun design (ever heard of fairy wand fruit kebabs?!), or just throw your favourite fruit together.
Great for breakfast, pudding or just a snack. Little hands love making this, but to be honest, I think that everyone does really. You just need to cut your fruit into chunks which are small enough to eat off a stick, but big enough that they don’t break when you insert the skewer. Technically it’s not cooking with kids, but it’s having fun in the kitchen, and surely that’s the most important thing!
