Rainbow Fruit Kabobs are a fun and refreshing snack. This fruity fun is a great afternoon snack or healthy dessert alternative. They are a fun, no bake snack that’s kid friendly and easy to make.
Rainbow Fruit Kabobs and Yogurt Dip
Rainbow fruit kabobs are such a fun way to eat fruit!
This fruit fun is not only a great snack, but certainly a fun side dish for a child’s breakfast or lunch. BUT WAIT! A tray of rainbows is also perfect for entertaining, classroom parties and many different gatherings. I don’t know, maybe I’m a kid at heart, but I’m all in for rainbow fruit kabobs at any event!
The kids can help with assembly. Simply line up the fruit and let them create the rainbows;
Red = strawberry, watermelon, raspberries
Green = kiwi, green grapes
Orange = clementines, orange pieces, cantaloupe
Yellow = pineapple, mango
Purple = grapes, blackberries
Blue = blueberries
Every rainbow needs a pot of gold; right? While these fruity rainbows are delicious all on their own, they’re even better dipped in yogurt dip.
Here is the recipe to fold and serve for fruit dipping yum…
- 3 oz. Greek vanilla yogurt
- 3 oz. low fat vanilla yogurt
- 2 tablespoons crushed pineapple
- 2 tablespoons mandarin orange, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon vanilla coconut milk
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
Fold the Greek yogurt, vanilla yogurt, crushed pineapple, chopped mandarin oranges, coconut milk and vanilla extract together.
Serve with rainbow fruit kabobs for fruit dipping yum.
Prepping Ahead: The fruit prep can be a little time consuming with all of the hulling, washing, skin removing, dicing fruit prepping needed. If I’m making these for a party or gathering or even with the kids for snacks, it’s a little easier if the fruit is prepped ahead of time. There are many valuable lessons in preparing the fruits with the kids.
Time Saving Tip: You can purchase prepared fruit in the produce aisle at your Price Chopper and Market 32 Supermarkets.
NOTE: You can add pears, bananas and apples to the mix as well, but I’ve found these fruits tend to brown quickly and easily so I tend not to use them for rainbow kabobs.
