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…

More on Making this Recipe:

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.

More Rainbow Food Fun:  Make a Rainbow Salad!  This salad is filled with fruit and is served with pistachios (optional), honey goat cheese and topped with my homemade orange honey dressing.
