Fruit kebabs are one of those ridiculously simple concepts that are absolutely amazing. Cutting up bite sized chunks of fruit and placing them on a stick makes a deliciously easy pudding or snack. I originally made these with my nephew. With the whole aim being to make a tasty healthy pudding which he really enjoyed making. We make cake all the time and it was nice to try something a little different.
Absolutely any fruit can be used for these as long as it’s cut up into small chunks. But it is easier to use softer fruit (think berries, banana or melon). As something like apples could be quite tricky for little hands to piece onto the stick.
For this I used standard long kebab sticks; but if these are too long then you can just cut them in half. If you’re worried about sharp spikes and little hands, then you can cut the spikes off with a pair of sharp scissors before you begin. Just make sure that there’s no splintering to the wood before you start adding fruit.
Add as much fruit as you like until the stick is full. I love that you can just add whatever fruit you want to these. Whether you go crazy with patterns or just chuck everything on at random, I can guarantee that no two kebabs will be the same. Place them on a plate and bring out at the end of dinner and you’ll be surprised at just how popular they’ll be.

- Strawberries cut in half
- Banana cut into chunks
- Tangerines peeled and segmented
- Wooden Skewers I had to cut mine in half to make it easier for little hands
- With a little adult help, push the fruit onto the stick, (pointy end first) and push to the top of the skewer.
- Keep going, adding any fruit you wish until your stick is full. You might want to pop a berry on the pointy end when your finished, to help shield little fingers, and mouths, from the sharp bits.
- You can use any fruit you like, and make any pattern. When you're finished simply enjoy!
Feel free to experiment, and use whatever fruit combination you'd like!
