Kids love assembling these DIY Rainbow Fruit Kabobs!

Looking for a fun and healthy summer snack for the kids? These DIY fruit kabobs are a always a hit! We’re always looking for healthier treats for the kids to enjoy during the hot summer months, and fruit is always a great option! Letting the kids pick out which fruits to buy and assemble the kabobs themselves makes it a fun project that everyone will enjoy. We also love serving the kabobs with a simple and healthier fruit dip that’s easy to customize…dip makes everything a little more fun 😉

Kids will love assembling these DIY fruit kabobs! Use any fruit to make them for any holiday or event!

You can use red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple fruits to  make a rainbow kabob like we did, OR use red, white, and blue fruits for the 4th of July, OR simply use the fruit you have on hand. A fun twist would be adding brownies to the kabobs because…everything is better with chocolate 😉 The kids will love assembling and eating them no matter how the finished product looks 😉

This 2 ingredient fruit dip is AMAZING! It's so easy to make any flavor you want!, you'll never need another fruit dip!

Adding a fruit dip is a fun twist that will encourage even your picky eaters to have a taste, and it’s even a great side dish for adults! This is the EASIEST fruit dip you’ll ever make, I got the recipe from a friend who often brings it to our family game night along with a bowl of fresh grapes. Adults and kids alike love it! It’s easy to switch up the flavors so have some fun with it.

To make this fun snack for gluten free guests, be sure to use a space and utensils that have been thoroughly cleaned with soap and water. Have all the guests wash hands before assembly and use ingredients that are labelled gluten free. Kraft brand Cool Whip is typically considered safe by the gluten free community due to Kraft’s stringent labelling rules, but always check with the child’s parents to be sure. It’s also easy to make these dairy free by using just a dairy free yogurt in place of the dip (Silk is our favorite brand and it comes in several different flavors, please note that it’s made with soy, in case there are any soy allergies).

DIY Fruit Kabobs are a fun and healthy treat for the kids this Summer!

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

  • Assorted fruit
  • Wooden skewers
  • 2 single serving cartons of yogurt (I used Greek yogurt)
  • 1 small carton Cool Whip, thawed
  • Garnish (optional)

 

Here are a few fun flavor combos for the dip:

Pina Colada: use Pina Colada yogurt and garnish with toasted coconut

Strawberries and Cream: Strawberry yogurt

Pot O’ Gold: Vanilla yogurt garnished with orange zest

Lemon Cream Pie: Lemon yogurt garnished with lemon zest

 

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Make the dip by folding the yogurt into the Cool Whip. Transfer it to a cute serving bowl and top with garnish if you want.
  2. Wash and prepare the fruit, cutting any fruit that isn’t already bite-sized into 1 inch chunks.
  3. To make the assembly kid friendly, arrange the fruit in small bowls or platters in the order the kids should put them on the skewers. 
  4. Make sure your wooden skewers are free from splinters.
  5. Now the fun begins! You can do a rainbow pattern, use red, white, and blue fruit for the 4th of July, or just use the fruit you have on hand. Get creative!
