These Fruit Kabobs with Fruit Dip are a fun and “healthy” appetizer or dessert! Perfect!
I've made these Fruit Kabobs and Fruit Dip for several special occasions. They make such a beautiful presentation and will really dress up your gathering.
Best Fruits for Kabobs
Just about any fruit will work for skewered fruit on a stick. I like to use fruits that don't brown (like bananas, apples or peaches) so I try to choose fruits that will last longer. Like a fruit salad, pick a variety of colors so your presentation will really stand out. Or think about the occasion and match your fruit to the event. 🙂
Here are a few of my favorite fruits to use for kabobs:
- pineapple chunks
- cantaloupe, honeydew and watermelon
- seedless grapes
- kiwi slices
How to make fruit kabobs?
These are SO easy but really make a WOW impact on your guests!
- Prepare the fruit by washing, drying and cutting into slices, chunks, wedges or melon balls.
- Then thread fruit onto the skewers alternating colors and fruits. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Can you make fruit kabobs in advance?
You can definitely make these ahead of time. In fact, you can make the fruit dip a day or two in advance. The fruit will keep in the refrigerator up to 12 hours and that also gives the fruit a good chance to be well chilled before serving. 😎
How do you keep fruit kabobs fresh?
Depending on which fruits you choose to use, these should stay fresh for a day or two. I wouldn't suggest using bananas, apples or even peaches if you need them to last longer. Instead choose fruits that tend to keep a bit longer.
What to Serve with Fruit Kabobs
This fruit dip is our favorite way to serve these, but they can definitely stand on their own.
A few other suggestions are chocolate fondue, fruit yogurts, strawberry cream cheese or whipped cream!
